If you’re bothered by crooked or crowded teeth, Frankel Dental Care’s adult orthodontic treatments could be the perfect solution for you. Unlike traditional train tracks, our high-tech adult braces straighten smiles in weeks not years – and they’re so discreet, no one will notice you’re wearing them! At Frankel Dental Care we offer Secret Smile, Simply Smile and clear aligners – all extremely advanced adult brace systems that meet a diverse range of needs.
Secret Smile lingual braces are fitted to the back of the teeth – so they are completely invisible! Designed to straighten the front six-to-eight teeth (rather than your bite), Secret Smile braces exert gentle forces on your teeth to move them into the desired position in as little as six weeks.
How it works
Similar to train tracks, but completely invisible, Secret Smile brackets are custom-made for your teeth, using your dental impressions and photographs. Once the brackets are fitted, they are then wired together, applying the gentle force needed to move your teeth into place. The high-tech nature of the Secret Smile system makes the braces comfortable and easy to adapt to. Consult Frankel Dental Care today to find out if Secret Smile is right for you.
Simply Smile is a fixed brace system that combines clear ceramic brackets with a discreet silver wire. As well as being incredibly discreet, Simply Smile braces are extremely tough, making them ideal for more complex teeth straightening cases. And because they focus on the front ‘smiling’ teeth, treatment is much faster – generally around 6–12 months – than with traditional orthodontic systems. To find out if Simply Smile is right for you, contact Frankel Dental Care for a smile consultation today.
If your work or lifestyle prevents you from being able to consider fixed braces, Frankel Dental Care offers clear aligners as an alternative solution. Created using your dental impressions, clear aligners resemble a mouth guard – albeit an extremely high-tech one! Once they are fitted over your teeth, they are almost invisible, and they apply a gentle force that quickly moves teeth into place. You receive a new set of aligners every few weeks until treatment is complete. Clear aligners are removable for cleaning and eating – and importantly for any extra-special events you want to attend with complete confidence.
Invisalign is a high-tech system that straightens teeth fast using clear, bespoke aligners that sit over the top of your teeth. They’re barely visible when worn, and removable for when you want to eat, clean them or attend a special social or professional engagement. Plus they work fast (think weeks not years) so you can look forward to a straight smile and renewed confidence in hardly any time at all!

It really does depend on your individual case – but if you already have good oral health and you only want to straighten your front teeth, it’s likely that you’ll be a good candidate for the brace systems that work in weeks or months, not years.
