A ClearSmile Aligner is a clear removable cosmetic appliance designed to straighten your front 6-8 teeth. ClearSmile technology can straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, tilted forwards or backwards. Aligners move the teeth in tiny, incremental steps when worn every day. You will be able to visualise your end results before commencing treatment using Archwise simulations, and once the result is approved, the custom-made ClearSmile Aligners are fabricated using the latest in 3D printing technology.
A series of aligners is made to perfectly fit onto the teeth, with each aligner in the series varying slightly from the next. All aligners are worn virtually full time for two weeks, being removed only for eating and cleaning, before moving on to the next in the series.
They have very little effect on your speech, because they fit so closely to your teeth. They are clear and virtually invisible, with the effect that few work colleagues will notice that you are wearing them.
After treatment is completed, the teeth are retained with a fixed or removable retainer to reduce the risk of relapse.
