What is Abc?

ABC is a combination of minimally invasive treatments that results in a great outcome. You can pick and choose whichever combination best suits your needs.

  • Alignment
    This is when teeth straightening methods are used to create a uniform arch. Traditional or more modern short-term adult orthodontic treatments, such as Six-Month Smiles, can be used. Teeth that are crooked, rotated, or twisted can easily be brought into line in a matter of a few months, making this a great conservative approach for adults.
  • Bonding
    This technique uses adhesion dentistry to bond different materials to a tooth surface to alter its shape and form. Short teeth can be made to look longer and misshapen teeth can be made to look more natural. There is also an enormous array of colours, textures, and translucencies to give beautiful results when chosen correctly.
  • Contouring
    This technique requires skill and artistry in your dentist. It is a method that uses micro-adjustments to produce a specific look. It, too, can alter the shape and form of teeth but to a lesser extent and hence works extremely well in combination treatments.
  • Bleaching This is simply another term for Professional Teeth Whitening. Modern systems have allowed for great results, and teeth can easily be made to look brighter and fresher.

Combination Treatments

  • ABC Treatment This stands for ‘Alignment, Bonding & Contouring’. In this treatment, teeth straightening first occurs to align the teeth in a natural arch. Any irregularities in the shape and form of the teeth are then corrected by contouring some aspects and by adhering natural tooth-coloured material to other aspects. The result is an improved smile that also looks very natural.
  • ABB Treatment This stands for ‘Alignment, Bleaching & Bonding’ This is a simple treatment where orthodontic treatment is first used to align the teeth within the arch form. Once the teeth are straightened, they can be whitened to improve the colour and shade of teeth. Thereafter, matching tooth-coloured material can be bonded to lift the smile into a new dimension.
  • BBC Treatment This stands for ‘Bleaching, Bonding & Contouring’ In this type of combination, most teeth are already straight. They simply need some altering in shape, form and colour. According to the smile design, this can easily be corrected with a teeth whitening treatment, addition and bonding of tooth-coloured material and then some final micro-adjustments with contouring.

How Long Will the Treatment Take?

  • STEP 1: We will start the process with a highly detailed and thorough comprehensive examination and assessment. We will then construct a customised treatment plan and design your ABC treatment.
  • STEP 2 ALIGNMENT (A): The braces or aligners (depending upon your treatment plan) will be fitted.
  • STEP 3: Appointments will then be booked sequentially to review your progress and make necessary adjustments.
  • STEP 4: Your braces will be removed once you and your dentist are happy with the final results.
  • STEP 5: A permanent retainer will be fitted to prevent treatment regression.
  • STEP 6 BONDING (B): Here, unique dental materials can be used to alter and improve the aesthetics of your teeth. These tooth-coloured materials are bonded chemically to your teeth.
  • STEP 7 CONTOURING (C): This appointment allows you to have any further refining enhancements or minor adjustments. Any teeth contouring can be done at this stage.

How Do We Decide Which Aspects to Contour and Which Teeth to Bond Tooth-coloured Material to?

At The Perfect Smile Studios, we are proud of the high quality and beautifully aesthetic results we achieve.

This can only be done by first evaluating the exact changes necessary to enhance your smile. Our dentists first carry out a highly detailed and extensive Smile Analysis using our Signature Complete Care Comprehensive Dental Assessment.

He then designs your new smile. He looks not only at the shape and form of your teeth but also at the gradient of colours that make up your teeth.

If your teeth need a brighter colour to “awaken” the smile, he will integrate this aspect into your new smile also. Based on this diagnosis he will then advise you of the techniques that can be successfully combined to produce outstanding results to give your bespoke ideal smile.

We would like to invite you for a complimentary consultation to discuss your choices and how we can help you.

“Considering my lack of knowledge in the field, I gave Sam carte blanche on designing my smile, the only criteria I imposed was a “textbook smile” and I can confirm he in fact over-delivered on even my biggest expectations. Truly a master in his craft, along with his team!”
