Secret Smile FAQ
Are the braces 100% truly invisible?
In short, Yes. This is because the brace will be attached to the backs of your teeth and no one will be able to see them as you speak.
Are there any foods you suggest to avoid?
During treatment we always recommend that you avoid any high in sugar foods or drinks and anything too crunchy or hard.
How come treatments are quicker?
This brace has been designed to focus on improving just the visible smile (for cosmetic reasons) rather than treating the bite as well.
After my treatment will my teeth remain straight?
After all orthodontic treatment it is vitally important to wear a retainer. If you don’t wear a retainer, you could experience a relapse of the teeth where they return to their original position, which undoes all the hard work of the braces.
