Clear aligners are the modern equivalent and mean you can discreetly move your teeth without the embarrassment of wearing old fashioned train tracks.
The process for clear aligners generally follows three steps, your dentist will be able to discuss the pros and cons of each solution with you.
We take 3-D digital impressions of your mouth with our intraoral scanner at your initial visit, eliminating the need to pack paste in your mouth to take impressions. It is faster, cleaner, and more precise than conventional impressions.
You’ll be given a set of aligners to wear. Each progressively transforms your teeth into your ideal smile, one step at a time. Each aligner is worn for a specific period of time (usually every 2 weeks) before moving on to the next in the sequence.
You’ll be given a retainer to wear after treatment to ensure your teeth stay in the desired position and do not relapse to their old placement.
Treatment duration varies by individual and the severity of your case, however, a typical treatment period will be nine to fifteen months.
Here is a little more information on your teeth straightening options but we recommend booking a consultation to discuss your options with one of our dentists.
We have developed Smïl Aligners with you and your needs in mind, we have combined the best of both worlds, predictability from fixed appliances and the comfort and speed from digitally, 3d printed aligners, delivered and monitored by our in-house experts.
Smil Aligners are designed and manufactured in the UK and offer the fastest route to treatment. Because manufacturing takes place on-site you get your aligners the very next day (or even on the same day in some cases), as opposed to a 4-5 week waiting time with the market leader. This also means reduced shipping and handling costs, we pass these savings directly to you, for affordable clear aligner treatment.
Smïl Aligners differ in that they have been designed to move your teeth in the most efficient way, meaning fewer aligners and a shorter treatment time.
Smïl Aligners have been expertly designed to move your teeth in a predictable way, so you won’t experience issues during treatment because teeth didn’t respond as planned.
Smïl runs a specialist in-house planning team who are specifically trained in developing optimal treatment plans to give our patients the best possible results in the shortest possible time frame.
