How Does It Work?
Each smile is designed individually and may require one or a combination of several techniques and materials. No two smiles are alike and each requires a customized solution. Teeth are selectively contoured, and materials such as porcelain and resin are applied to the teeth to achieve the desired effect. This takes one to two visits in most situations and up to 4 visits where there are multiple aesthetic challenges and complexities. The appointments are usually a week apart and last about 1 to 2 hours. The success of Straight White Teeth is the result of Dr Ernest Rex Tan’s years of experience and expertise gained from transforming and beautifying thousands of smiles and managing many complex aesthetic cases.
Why SmileQuikTM Straight White Teeth?
Here are a few reasons to consider the Straight White Teeth Procedure:
- There is No Need to wear awkward braces or aligners for several years and the related inconveniences (multiple visits to tighten the wires) and self consciousness.
- No Surgery or Extraction of Teeth
- No Retainers. With conventional braces or aligners, retainers are worn for years (or even for the remainder of the patient’s life.) NO RETAINERS are needed with Straight White Teeth.
- Lack Of Side Effects. Most patients do not experience any side effects such as bone loss or significant teeth sensitivity .
- No Oral Hygiene Problems. As there are no messy wires and brackets, food does not get easily trapped and oral hygiene is easily maintained.
- Stain Resistant – In fact, due to the smoother texture of the tooth surface after Straight White Teeth, teeth do not stain easily.
- No Relapse. As the teeth are not moved at all with Straight White Teeth, there is no chance of them relapsing to their original positions.
- Other Aesthetic Considerations. As we apply materials to the teeth, Straight White Teeth also whitens and enhances the texture, shape and proportion of the smile. Hence, there is no additional process required for whitening or bonding.
- No Black Triangles – Between the teeth.

What Is The Smile Lift?
The Smile Lift Improves Collapsed, Narrow and Unsupported Smiles which are due to Worn, Eroded, Misshapen and Mal-positioned Dentition. These conditions result in inadequate Support for the Lips and Cheeks which give the appearance of a Collapsed, Narrow and Aged Smile which does not have the natural fullness and contours of youth. The Smile Lift incorporates features that enhance and Lift the corners and contours of the smile to achieve a younger and fuller smile. Dark corridors and spaces adjacent to the lips and cheeks are given greater support to achieve the desired fullness. It is therefore a great anti-aging smile solution that can take years off the patient’s smile.
What Are The Conditions The Smile Lift Can Correct?
If you have one of the following conditions, The Smile lift may be just what you need:
- Smiles that appear collapsed and narrow due to insufficient support from the lips and cheeks.
- Smiles where the teeth are not visible when smiling.
- Smiles where the teeth are worn, chipped, eroded and very short due to years of wear and tear or from developmental defects.
- Smile that appear truncated at the corners of the smile as the teeth at the corners of the smile are not ideally positioned and do not have an ideal shape that will give it a natural fullness.
What Can The Smile Life Achieve?
- A younger and Fuller Smile: The dark Corners and Corridors of The Smile are lifted and this gives the Smile a fuller and more youthful appearance.
- The Procedure will also help in lifting and giving more support to the lips and cheeks and therefore help lift the lower part of the face.
- The shapes, length, proportion of the individual teeth and the overall contour of the smile will also be enhanced to take years off the smile.
What Are The Advantages Of The Smile Lift?
- NO surgery is required and therefore there is no downtime.
- It can be done within a single visit or over 2 visits depending on the complexity and extent of The Smile Lift.
- There is no relapse and the effects last many years with proper care and maintenance.
- Patients derive greater confidence and self esteem and all the benefits associated with a great smile.

Invisalign and Other Aligners
If you have been searching for a solution for crowded, mal-aligned and crooked teeth, you would have read about Invisalign, E cligners and many brands that provide clear plastic aligners to move teeth into more ideal positions. These have a role to play in the alignment of teeth in some situations. The key is to assess and recommend the most appropriate solution for your condition. Smile Inc.® is proud to be one of Singapore’s leading Invisalign clinics. We will assess the extent of your mal-alignment and your objectives to recommend the most appropriate treatment modality which may or may not include these aligners. The solution may also involve more than 1 treatment modality or a multidisciplinary approach.
Periodontal Plastic (Aesthetic) Procedures and Gummy Smiles
Periodontal plastic procedures are defined as cosmetic-related surgeries of the gingival (gum) tissues. These surgeries involve regenerative or reconstructive techniques designed to restore form and function and to enhance the overall aesthetic appearance when the patient smiles. When your teeth appear too short or your smile is too gummy, a crown lengthening procedure is indicated for removal of excess gum tissue to expose more of the crown of the tooth. This procedure is also prescribed in situations when gums cover too much of some teeth while may be just right on others, thus creating an uneven and un-harmonious appearance. Here, the entire affected gum line is sculpted to produce a more balanced gum contour to better blend with the surrounding teeth and smile line. Gum recession can be caused by several factors. These include periodontal disease (gum disease) and excessive tooth brushing. In cases where gum recession occurs, teeth often look long and unsightly. In addition, a risk of increased tooth sensitivity and development of root cavities increases in such cases. Root coverage procedures using soft tissues grafts can assist in covering these exposed root surfaces or reduce further progression of gum recession from occurring. The procedures above are best carried out by a periodontist (gum specialist) who has had further postgraduate training and certification in this field of dentistry.
