INSTAsmile, founded in 2012, creates what it calls a "comfortable alternative" to partial dentures.

The firm has seen an annual sales growth over three years of 63 per cent and £6.5m in sales.

It is the second year in a row it has featured in the top 100 list, coming in at 49th after finishing 16th in 2018.

INSTAsmile, which moved from Leigh to larger premises on Lodge Lane, Newton-le-Willows, employs 50 staff.

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

The firm prints 3D models of customers’ teeth to create accurate veneers.
