Braces are in high demand. Nearly 1 million people in the UK started orthodontic treatment last year and more adults than ever before want treatment!
At Shine Dental, we offer a number of cosmetic brace systems. Clear Positioners are a cosmetic alternative to traditional metal braces and are less conspicuous. Manufactured from clear medical grade plastic, they are worn in a sequence to gently guide the teeth into the desired position.
When the positioner is first placed over the teeth, it is not designed to fit perfectly, the teeth will move to where the positioner requires. The small movements incorporated into each positioner will gradually align the teeth using gentle pressure. Each positioner is worn for twenty hours a day over a two week period. Once this period is complete, the patient moves on to the next positioner in the sequence.
