What is ClearSmile Brace?
ClearSmile Brace uses traditional techniques with new technology to reduce orthodontic treatment times and improve the appearance of the braces.
The ClearSmile Brace wires are coated white (rather than being silver) and uses a material (Ni-Ti) with shape-memory. This shape-memory means the wire will return to its original shape regardless of how it’s bent. This creates the gentle forces used to move your teeth to the desired position.
Why does ClearSmile Brace use gentle forces?
Using lower forces increases the speed and comfort of treatment. Low forces also reduce the risks of orthodontic treatment.
Is ClearSmile Brace safe?
ClearSmile Brace is a safe orthodontic treatment.
As with all treatments, there are risks. The main risk of orthodontic treatment is root resorption.
Longer treatment times and stronger forces increase the risk. This means you are less likely to experience root resportion with ClearSmile Brace.
How discreet is ClearSmile Brace?
ClearSmile Brace uses clear brackets, as opposed to metal brackets. The wire used in a ClearSmile Brace is also coated with a tooth coloured material. As a result, ClearSmile Brace is less visible than traditional fixed braces.
Should I wear a retainer?
Yes. You must wear a retainer for life if you wish to maintain the results of any orthodontic treatment. ClearSmile Brace is no different.
ClearSmile Brace uses two alternatives:
- A fixed retainer bonded to the back of your teeth
- A clear retainer moulded to fit your teeth
What can be treated with ClearSmile Brace?
ClearSmile Brace is mainly used to straighten the front 10 teeth for aesthetic reasons. For examples of cases that can be treated please check our before and after images in the Smile Gallery.
If you don’t wish fixed orthodontics we can also offer-
ClearSmile Aligner is a clear removable cosmetic appliance designed to straighten your front 6-8 teeth. Clear Smile Aligner technology can straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, tilted forward or backwards using exact impressions taken by a dentist.
You will be able to see the results before you start using our Archwize simulations and, once the result is approved, the custom-made ClearSmile Aligners are fabricated using the latest in 3D printing technology.
