The "Align, Bleach, Bond" is the treatment philosophy Dr. Sum brings to Aidencare; This philosophy was first conceived by Dr. David Galler in New York and has gained popularity throughout the world including Dr. Tif Qureshi in the UK, due to the holistic and long-lasting dental care in which Dr. Sum also bases his philosophy on.

This approach involves three key steps:

1. Align: The first step focuses on correcting the alignment of teeth using orthodontic treatments such as clear aligners (e.g., Invisalign) or traditional braces. Proper alignment is crucial not only for aesthetic reasons but also for ensuring the correct function and long-term health of the teeth and jaw.

2. Bleach: Once the teeth are properly aligned, the next step is to enhance their appearance through teeth whitening. This step ensures that the teeth not only function well but also look their best, contributing to a brighter and more confident smile.
