Brightside Smile Of The Month February 2021

January 20th, 2021

Denise has been a long standing patient of Brightside Dental for well over a decade. She had been unhappy with her smile for a number of years, in particular the spaces between the teeth.

Her main concern was whether it would even be possible to improve her smile. Following a consultation with Dr Ketan Shah, treatment was planned and Denise went ahead with Invisalign clear aligner teeth straightening.

The treatment went as planned and her teeth were straightened and whitened to brighten up the colour in 14 months. This would have been considerably less time, but for the impact of Covid-19, lockdowns and difficulties in arranging appointments.

Denise shares her story:
