Rosa came to Brightside Dental on the recommendation of family members who had seen us for treatment. She was unhappy with her smile and in particular the crooked upper teeth and also the colour. It impacted her confidence and meant she avoided smiling in public.

We looked at various treatment options and Rosa opted for cosmetic fixed braces which offer a simple and fast way to straighten teeth, with discreet and comfortable braces. The braces were in place for around 9 months and then the teeth were whitened over a 2 week period using the Enlighten Premium teeth whitening system.

Rosa was delighted with the end result and her new smile. She discusses her experience here:
