ClearSmile Braces

Find UK Dentists »

In the last decade, there has been a significant increase in interest in orthodontic treatments, particularly those that offer invisibility. In the past, undergoing treatment meant wearing bulky, clearly visible metal train-tracks for 12-36 months, but today, the story is very different and orthodontic patients have a whole host of options to choose from.

One of the most noteworthy developments in the world of orthodontics is the introduction of clear braces, which provide those who have previously been reluctant to have treatment, with an option that suits their orthodontic needs, as well as their lifestyle. Wearing highly visible braces doesn’t just impact the way you look; it can also have a major bearing on your confidence and the way you come across to potential employers, business associates, colleagues and partners. Now, with treatments like ClearSmile Braces, individuals can get the smile they’ve always desired without any anxiety about how they look or what other people think about their appearance.

A brief introduction to ClearSmile Braces

ClearSmile Braces offer a discreet alternative to traditional fixed braces for patients who have issues that predominantly concern the front teeth. These braces are made from clear brackets and wires with a white coating, rather than metal and this makes them much less visible than other braces; this allows patients to feel confident during the treatment process and to go through their treatment without any worries or anxiety about wearing braces in public.

ClearSmile Braces use gentle forces to reposition and realign the teeth; this reduces discomfort for the individual and protects the teeth and surrounding structures.

The advanced technology behind ClearSmile Braces reduces treatment time compared to conventional fixed braces. Exact treatment time varies according to the individual and the nature of the prescription; your dentist will be able to give you an accurate idea of the projected end date when you have your consultation.

This guide will provide a detailed overview of ClearSmile Braces, answering frequently asked questions and giving you all the information you need if you’re interested in discreet orthodontic treatment.

What exactly is ClearSmile?

ClearSmile is a discreet fixed brace system, which is specially designed to target the front ten teeth to create a beautiful smile with minimal hassle and very little impact on your day to day life.

ClearSmile braces comprise clear, sleek brackets and an arch-wire, which is coated in tooth-coloured material for optimum aesthetics; these components generate gentle forces, which move the teeth into the correct position, creating a beautifully aligned and balanced smile. The wires are made from Ni-Ti, which boasts shape memory; this means that the wire will return to the same shape whenever it is bent out of position.

ClearSmile has been developed based on extensive research and it offers a safe, discreet and quick alternative to more traditional fixed braces.

This treatment is focused on the front ten teeth and by targeting these teeth, treatment times are reduced and a stunning aesthetic is guaranteed. This also means that patients who have mild issues that concern the front teeth only do not have to undergo treatment that is unnecessarily intensive.

Treatment times vary for every patient as every individual has a slightly different prescription and more movement may be needed in some cases than others. Your dentist will discuss treatment times with you when they have had a chance to have a good look at your teeth and analyse your bite thoroughly; typically, treatment takes between 4 and 12 months.
