The Smilelign System
Clear Aligners for Fast & Effective Tooth Straightening
Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners have become the preferred alternative because they offer patients a less invasive and more discreet tooth straightening option.
Clear braces work by gently pushing and re-positioning teeth to improve aesthetics and comfort. They also come with the benefit of being removable, which is an important consideration for many patients.
Clear braces are particularly popular with young people, as they alleviate any aesthetic anxieties or stigmas that are commonly attached to traditional braces.
What is Smilelign?
Smilelign is one of the most advanced teeth straightening solutions in the dental industry. Smilelign integrates the latest software and 3D CADCAM technology to design and produce a series of clear aligners that help straighten your teeth. The process is simple and painless. Your mouth will be scanned using our 3D digital scanner, which then analyses the treatment requirements. Once the analysis process has finished, you will be told the number of aligners you will require.
What Are the Benefits of Clear Braces?
Clear braces come with several benefits, which is why they are rapidly growing in popularity.
One of the major benefits that come with Smilelign is that it makes an oral analysis easy for clinicians. The 3D scanner is able to identify any misalignment, no matter how slight, and create aligners based on each patient’s unique requirements.
Clinicians then use the data from the 3D scanner to give simple recommendations to the patients. Aligners are only created after a bespoke treatment plan has been agreed upon between the dental practitioner and patient.
The process typically takes between 10 to 15 days, depending on the patient’s requirements and the number of aligners needed.
The video below details the treatment planning process.
Are Clear Braces Better than Metal Braces?
No brace is ‘better’ than the other. For example, someone who requires complex alignment may be a better candidate for fixed braces than clear braces. This is because fixed braces offer a higher degree of control in terms of teeth straightening.
Clear braces, by comparison, are better suited to patients who only require minor intervention. However, you will be able to speak with one of our dentists or orthodontists about this in detail during your consultation.
How Smilelign Works
Can Anyone Get Smilelign?
Smilelign is available to almost all patients. There are scenarios where Smilelign may not be as effective as traditional braces, but this is something you can discuss with Dr Dimitri Mantazis during your consultation. For example, patients may find that traditional fixed braces are a more appropriate alternative if their case is complex – such as if they have several crooked or misaligned teeth.
Smilelign is a very popular and effective option for many patients. Our team will develop a bespoke treatment plan tailored to your preferences and requirements. Dr Dimitri and his expert team will support you every step of the way through your treatment, ensuring that you understand every detail of your treatment and how it has been designed to improve your situation.
