IT IS all smiles for a business which produces clip-on veneers after it has been ranked 16th on the Sunday Times' annual list of Britain’s fastest growing private firms.

INSTAsmile, founded in Leigh 2012, creates what it calls a "comfortable alternative" to partial dentures and features on the list, which ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest growing sales over three years .

The firm, which this month moved from Platt Fold Street, Leigh to larger premises in Newton-le-Willows, employs 50 staff, has seen a 109.45 per cent annual sales growth over the last three years - and turns over more than £7m.

The products are made at its Newton-le-Willows headquarters and the business says that around 65 per cent of sales come from the US.

Simon Nixon, CEO and founder of INSTAsmile, said: “We have been bold in our approach to what is very much a new and relatively unknown category.

"We have developed innovative (patent pending) clip technology and digital manufacturing processes, and invested heavily in ongoing research and development into new products.

“With products retailing from as little as £125, and flexible finance options, INSTAsmile’s range is more financially accessible to audiences looking to improve their smile and boost their confidence versus expensive traditional veneers.”

Simon added: “We are honoured to have made it onto the highly coveted Sunday Times Fast Track 100; it’s testament to how far we have come as a business and recognition for the hard work of everyone who works in the business. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank our customers who have made this possible."

INSTAsmile, along with all the other firms listed, will join Sir Richard Branson at his Oxfordshire home for an invitation-only awards dinner during the summer.
