Clear aligners, like other types of teeth straightening methods, work by gradually shifting teeth into the ideal position. This is achieved through wearing a series of aligners, each for 2 weeks at a time, which apply carefully calculated pressure to each tooth to move them up to 0.3mm per aligner until the ideal alignment has been reached.
Wearing the aligners for 20 - 22 hours per day as recommended is key to achieving the results set out in your treatment plan.
Most people won't know you have them in, they are very discreet.
If you have a special occasion and you feel you would like to have them out, that's the beauty of clear aligners, you can take the aligners out, pop them in your case and put them back in once you are done. Remember to follow the guidelines, the success of the treatment relies on you following the guidelines.
We assess each case individually. However, we still need impressions for both the top and the bottom teeth. Our Dental Team needs both impressions to ensure that your bite is aligned.
We're sure you're going to love your smile journey, however, if, for some reason you disapprove of your 3D smile transformation video, we can work with our dental team and lab to adjust your results, if you prefer we will give a full refund. Also if our dental team or lab determine that your case isn't treatable with our clear aligners we'll refund you straight away.
It's that simple, it's risk-free
A 3D smile transformation preview is a digital video.
We create high detail 3D models of your impressions. Then we create a treatment plan, which we use to create a series of Clear Aligners. This is your Clear Aligner treatment that will correct the alignment of your teeth and provide you with the perfect smile, giving you confidence.
If you like the look of your future smile, you can go ahead and order your aligners. If you don’t, you can cancel your order for a full refund.
