"I am grateful for the opportunity to have the treatment and would highly recommend it to anyone. I cant wait to finish the treatment and show off my lovely, straight smile."
Danielle Kelly, winner of Marie Claire competition
A Manchester mum is enjoying a £6000 smile enhancing treatment ‘on the house’ after winning a competition with Marie Claire Magazine.
Danielle Kelly, 36, an Early Years practitioner from Manchester entered the competition to win a full C-Thru clear aligners treatment package, which is designed to straighten teeth using almost invisible braces.
The mum of one entered the competition with the popular ladies’ magazine, and made an appointment with a local dental surgery, Manor Dental Care, when she found out she had won.
The process will involve realigning 12 teeth and will take approximately 16 weeks to complete the treatment.
Danielle said: “I’ve always been a bit self-conscious about my teeth and avoid smiling with them on show in pictures. I’d never really had the spare cash to pay to have anything done about them, but getting my teeth straightened was something I’d always wanted to do.
“I saw the C-Thru Smiles competition on the Marie Claire website, and decided to enter. When I found out I’d won, I was over the moon.
“I’ve been fitted for my first set of clear aligners already, and I’m really happy with how comfortable they are to wear and how easy they are to put in and take out. Some of my friends haven’t even noticed I’m wearing them yet, which is great.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to have the treatment and would highly recommend it to anyone. I can’t wait to finish the treatment and show off my lovely, straight smile.”
Pennie Hudson Ward, CEO of C-Thru Smiles, who produce the CThru aligners, said: “We’re pleased to be helping Danielle on her journey to her dream smile.
“Many people in the UK are embarrassed by their teeth or hide their smiles, and straightening and whitening treatments can help address this, increasing confidence and happiness in one’s personal appearance.
“We can’t wait to see how pleased Dannielle is after she has the full C-Thru Smiles experience.”
Khadijah Chaudhary, a dentist from Manor Dental Care, said: “Danielle’s first fitting went very well, and we are confident she’ll start seeing results quickly.
“We’ve seen many patients go through treatment using C-Thru clear aligners, and they’ve always been happy with how lovely their teeth have looked after they’d finished. We’re looking forward to seeing Danielle for her next check-up.”
