Simple straight teeth

5 steps to your perfect smile



We’ll discuss what you do and don’t like about your smile, take a picture and show you how you’ll look wearing clear braces. For your peace of mind we’ll explain the process in detail and check you are suitable for treatment.



You’ll have a smile assessment with a UK registered dentist. After a free 3D digital scan of your teeth they will create your unique treatment plan.



You’ll collect your first set of clear braces and the dentist will show you how to fit them and give you all the information you need about how to care for them.



You will receive your custom made aligners through the post and will change them as directed by your treatment plan. We’ll also want to see you regularly to make sure everything is progressing as planned.



Once your teeth are straightened we’ll give you a free set of retainers to wear at night to make sure your new smile stays perfect.
