Your new smile can be as simple as ABC

Your new smile can be as simple as ABC

Your teeth can have a huge impact on the way you feel about yourself, not to mention your confidence when meeting people face to face, smiling or having your photograph taken.

Here at The Essex Smile Centre, we think everybody should feel great about their smile but appreciate that, due to a variety of dental issues, this isn’t always the case.

When it comes to effective cosmetic dental solutions that can help you achieve the smile of your dreams, we prefer not to overcomplicate things. In fact, the answer can often be as simple as ABC

when you consider the following three treatments:

  • Alignment
  • Brightening
  • Composite

So, if you are living with a smile that you feel the need to cover or hide, why not find out more about this 3-step process and how it could transform your teeth to create a magnificent, life changing smile that you will love to show off.

What Are The Steps Of ABC?

Three processes are involved in an ABC plan – Align, Brighten and Composite – each designed to help improve the appearance and functionality of the teeth, as well as enhancing how they look and feel in the mouth.


Designed for those who have crooked, misaligned, crowded or gapped teeth, our Invisalign straightening solution is a simple, non-invasive and effective treatment that unlike traditional metal braces is practically invisible.

Invisalign Essex consists of a set of clear, custom-made aligners that fit over the teeth like a mouthguard or retainer. Aligners are swapped every 7-10 days for the next in the sequence, which gradually moves the teeth over time to their new position.

Not only does this type of straightening treatment look a lot better throughout the process but aligners can also be removed easily when required in order to aid eating, drinking and cleaning teeth. They require fewer dentist appointments for check-ups as there are no brackets or wires to adjust and the overall experience and comfort is considerably better with excellent results.


In order to deliver a truly amazing smile we brighten teeth using our effective whitening treatment. One of the most common and sought after cosmetic dental treatments, tooth whitening can really make a difference to the overall appearance of teeth and create a bright, white and beautiful smile.

The method we use for teeth whitening Essex is extremely safe and can be carried out without causing any damage to the teeth. The procedure usually requires 2 short visits, spaced around 1-2 weeks apart in order to obtain a mould of your teeth to create your custom trays. Once ready, these will be given to you along with your bleaching kit and instructions on how to carry out the treatment at home.

The time it takes to achieve optimum results can vary depending on the patient but typically the process will require 4-6 weeks and the treatment can be topped up around once every 2 months or so to help maintain the required shade or to brighten for a special occasion. The length of time that whitening results can last will depend on lifestyle choices such as whether the patient smokes or regularly drinks tea, coffee and red wine. However, if properly maintained, the results of tooth whitening can last many years!


Composite bonding is an advanced dentistry technique that our expert clinicians use to help perfect, fine tune and enhance the overall appearance of our patients’ teeth to produce truly beautiful smiles.

Composite bonding Essex can be used to smooth, shape, fill and cover cosmetic irregularities such as broken edges, chips, cracks and gaps. Using a versatile, tooth coloured composite resin our composite ‘artists’ deliver pain free, fast, cost effective and natural results that our patients love.

This versatile treatment can be carried out in just one short session and if properly maintained can last anywhere from 3-5 years. Maintenance will be required during this period.
