You’re never fully dressed without a smile!
Your smile is an expression of who you are, it is scientifically proven to be ‘the symbol that is rated with the highest positive emotional content.’ If crooked teeth are giving you a reason not to smile, even if you have previously had braces, short term orthodontic treatment could be the key to achieving beautiful, straight teeth and a smile you’ll love.
What are short term Orthodontics?

They are designed for adults who want to improve the appearance of the teeth which are most on display, usually when they smile. The treatment times are around 4 – 9 months with average treatments lasting 6 months.
