Secret Smile braces Lichfield lingual orthodontist in Staffordshire | Secret Smile Braces Lichfield
Secret Smile braces are fitted to the back of your teeth making them totally invisible. A favourite with celebrities and those in the public eye.
Secret Smile is specifically designed to straighten your front six teeth. Rather than treat how your teeth bite together we focus on improving your smile. This means treatment is much quicker than traditional orthodontics.
Secret Smile braces exert light forces onto your teeth to gently encourage them into their new positions and uses a series of traditional and modified techniques.
Due to the invisible appearance of Secret Smile braces, this technique has become popular with celebrities looking for special orthodontic treatment that does not interfere with work or socialising.
We have treated many cases where patients main concerns were:
Is Secret Smile suitable for you? Why not book a consultation with one of our approved providers of Secret Smile, where one of our specially trained dentists will be able to listen to your concerns about your teeth and assess you for suitability.
Yes, the brace fits behind your teeth so nobody can see them.
You should follow a healthy diet, avoid sugary foods and also hard crunchy foods which may damage your brace.
Because we are simply improving your smile rather than treating your bite which can take around two years.
As with all orthodontic treatment, we recommend that you wear a retainer to make sure your teeth don't move back to their original position.
The fitting of the brace is totally painless. It is normal to experience discomfort from your teeth for a couple of days following fitting and adjustment. With Secret Smile braces some people may find that the brackets rub their tongue initially. We provide a special comfort guard for you to wear over the brace to protect your tongue from irritation for the first couple of weeks until you become used to the brackets.
Some people find that they lisp for a couple of days after the brace is fitted, but most people adapt very quickly and no one will realise you are wearing it.
