What are Quick braces?
Quick braces are designed to move teeth fast. They are ideal for your upper and lower front 4-6 teeth that are visible when you smile. Quick braces allow you to transform your smile in a matter of weeks without having to undergo years of orthodontic treatment.
At Sparkle, we offer a range of quick braces including 6 Month Braces, Inman Aligner™, Incognito™ Lingual Braces and Invisalign® Lite, which means that you do not have to compromise on your appearance throughout the treatment. You can be as confident and carefree as usual and after 12- 24 weeks or so you will have the perfect smile to boost.

When would I need quick braces?
Quick braces are used to treat mild to moderate misalignments of anterior or front teeth, such as:
- Closing spaces between teeth
- Correcting minor crowded teeth
- Correcting orthodontic relapse
- Making minor alignment improvements in preparation for cosmetic dental procedures like porcelain veneers and smile makeovers.
Why choose a Specialist Orthodontist for your care?
Unlike general dentists who can do some simpler orthodontic treatments, Specialist Orthodontists have undertaken a further three years of training and passed further exams (MOrthRCS) to be recognised by the General Dental Council as a "Specialist."
A Specialist Orthodontist has the knowledge, experience and expertise to provide braces for you no matter your age or how complex your dental situation.
Our Specialist offers the latest technologically advanced treatment in orthodontics to provide you with a perfect smile, including:
What is the procedure?
The treatment will depend on the type of Quick brace you choose. We offer two types of fixed braces, with 6 Month Braces and Incognito™ Braces, and two types of removable braces, the Inman Aligner™ and Invisalign® Lite.
All of our quick braces are very discreet, so no one has to know you are wearing braces.
To get the smile you want, our Specialist Orthodontist will understand your dental concerns and discuss your fast braces treatment options with you.
With Incognito braces, Inman Aligners and Invisalign braces, our Specialist will take models of your teeth and send them together with your unique detailed prescription for your braces to be made.
The models of your teeth are scanned into a computer and the braces are designed. The braces are custom made to fit your teeth and will move them into the desired position in as short a time as 3 months.
Our Specialist will see you every 2-3 weeks for approximately 20 minutes to adjust the forces needed to align your teeth and to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Once your treatment is complete we will provide you with a retainer to ensure your teeth stay in position and you can enjoy your new smile for a lifetime.

How will I feel after treatment?
When you first have your quick braces fitted and at your follow up adjustment appointments, you may experience a feeling of tension in the mouth as your teeth start to move into their new position. This is usually temporary and your mouth will adapt to your hidden braces within a few days.
Your speech may initially be affected. However, your speech will improve as you become accustomed to your braces.
Quick braces that are fitted on the front surface of your teeth cannot be removed for cleaning. It is therefore important that you brush well. We provide you with a complimentary orthodontic care kit with special interdental brushes to keep your teeth and brace clean.
In order to look after your teeth and braces, it is best to avoid:
- Eating toffees, boiled sweets, chewing gum, chocolates
- Fizzy drinks and fruit juices
- Eating hard foods, which may damage the braces such as crunchy apple and crusty bread.
How long will my treatment take?
Quick braces are as individual as you are. That’s why the duration of treatment will differ from one person to the next. Treatment time usually takes 3-9 months but will vary according to your individual treatment needs and how complex your case is.
Our Specialist Orthodontist will see you every 4 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Wearing a retainer after your orthodontic treatment is an important step, because it keeps your teeth stable in their new position. To help you maintain your new smile, we provide a free retainer for you at the end of your Quick braces treatment.
In addition, after completing your treatment, our Specialist Orthodontist will also see you for a further two complimentary appointments at six monthly intervals, to ensure all is well.
