What are the Social Six you ask? No it is not cheesy a boy-band, it is actually the most prominent and visible teeth on the top and lower arches of your teeth - so technically its the Social Twelve. . . but that doesn't sound as slick.
This is the treatment that Your Smile Direct specializes in with invisible braces otherwise known as invisible aligners!
These products can be mistaken for retainers at times but the name "aligner" gives us a clue, they align the teeth and move them into the desired position whereas retainers are used to retain the new position of your smile!Read More
Here at Your Smile Direct, we pride ourselves in providing a hassle-free, affordable and quick treatment using invisible braces! Although our service is pretty awesome (if we do say so ourselves), we are strictly a cosmetic dental service . We focus on straightening the "six social teeth" AKA the front six teeth of both top and bottom arches. But during the scan and the impression kit process, we do capture and study the whole set of teeth within your mouth as it will provide our dental superstars with the information they need to check your eligibility to begin our treatment!Read More
During your treatment, each invisible aligner is only in for an average of two weeks. But don’t be fooled, this provides enough time for bacteria and plaque to grow on them if you don’t take proper care of them! If you avoid caring for your aligners it can cause bad breath, discolouring of the clear BPA-free material and even problems with your overall oral health.Read More
New research indicates that a good way to make a new friend is to SMILE. So it is really important to smile confidently, but how can we do that if we don’t feel confident about how our teeth look? I personally like to be surrounded by smiley people. As the Chinese proverb goes; “never slap the smiler”, which means Smilers are too adorable to slap. (Just keep smiling as you don’t wanna be slapped, right?)Read More
