What are Secret Smile Braces?
Secret Smile Braces are fitted to the back of teeth so they are totally invisible. These braces a specially designed to straighten just the front teeth which means it is much quicker than traditional orthodontics. The braces work by applying gentle pressure to gently guide and move the teeth into an optimal position.

Secret Smile Braces are specifically designed to straighten the front six teeth. This type of short-term orthodontics is appropriate for treating mild crowding of the front teeth, closing gaps between teeth, aligning the gum line and alignment of flared teeth.
Does Secret Smile treatment hurt?
Braces are a very simple and non-invasive method of improving your smile. When you first have your brace fitted is normal to experience mild discomfort whilst your mouth adjusts to wearing a brace, this usually resolves within a couple of weeks and can be managed with over the counter pain killers. It is also common to feel some mild discomfort following adjustment appointments as the teeth adapt to their new position, this usually subsides within 48 hours.
