What Is Secret Smile?
Secret Smile is a unique brace system, designed to be completely invisible as it is fixed to the back of your teeth rather than the front, as is the case with most traditional braces. Secret Smile braces are particularly popular with those with celebrity status and people who spend a lot of time working in front of the public.
Why Choose Secret Smile?
Rather than treating how your teeth bite together, Secret Smile focuses on the six teeth at the front of your mouth, therefore improving the aesthetics of your smile. This makes the Secret Smile treatment process a lot quicker than other orthodontic systems.
How Does Secret Smile Work?
Using a series of bespoke and traditional techniques, Secret Smile braces apply gentle pressure on your teeth, lightly supporting them into the desired position.
Am I Suitable?
We recommend Secret Smile braces if your concerns are:
- Straightening crooked teeth
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Alignment of flared teeth
- Alignment of the gum line
- Time and complexity of treatment
This treatment is especially popular with people who require special orthodontic treatment, but don’t want it to get in the way of socialising by affecting their image.
Is the brace invisible?
Yes! The braces are fitted behind the teeth, so nobody but you will know they’re there.
Is there any food I should avoid eating during the treatment process?
Your diet should be healthy, and we advise that you avoid sugary foods and tough, crunchy food items that could cause damage to the brace.
Why is treatment so quick?
These braces are not designed to treat your bite – this can take up to two years. Instead, Secret Smile braces focus on improving your smile, which is why the treatment process is so quick.
Will my teeth stay straight after treatment?
As is the case with all orthodontic treatment, we recommend that you wear a retainer afterwards in order to make sure that the teeth don’t move back to their original position.
Will it hurt?
The process of fitting the brace is entirely pain-free. However, it is not unusual to feel slight discomfort for a day or two following the fitting as your mouth gets used to the brace. In the initial stages, some patients find that the brackets cause irritation on the tongue, but this shouldn’t be a problem as we will provide you with a comfort guard to be worn over the brace. This will protect the tongue from discomfort.
Will my speech be affected during treatment?
Some patients find that they lisp in the initial stages as their mouth gets used to the brace, but this only lasts for a couple of days and in most cases people adapt quickly and easily.
If you want to know if Secret Smile is the treatment you need, don’t hesitate to book a consultation at Dental Studio. We will be happy to listen to your concerns regarding orthodontics and assess your teeth for suitability. Call 02392 254234 for more information.
