With Smile 3D, your teeth are straightened painlessly and easily using a series of custom-made, removable aligners which move your teeth, little by little, until they reach the ideal position.
Each aligner is worn for 2-3 weeks before moving on to the next one. The aligners are clear and slimline, so they won’t affect your speech and no one will even notice you’re wearing them
Smile 3D starts with an initial consultation with your dentist or orthodontist who will evaluate your smile and customise a digital treatment plan. In this appointment, the dentist will discuss your treatment goals and take scans of your mouth. Photographs and X-rays may be taken at this stage too.
The scans are sent to a laboratory where a digital treatment plan will be created. When the dentist is happy with your treatment plan, a link will be sent to you to view*. At this stage the dentist will inform you of the cost and approximate treatment length. They’ll also give you a consent form to sign.
Once you approve your plan, your unique aligners will be created. An appointment will be made to have your aligners fitted.
*Smile 3D Go! is for very small corrections and no visuals will be sent.
During your treatment, it’s important to attend regular follow-up appointments with your dentist. Additional scans or impressions may be taken at different stages of your treatment.
Now you have the smile you have always wanted, you need to keep them this way!
To keep your teeth in the correct position, your dentist will discuss retention options with you. It’s important to continue to wear the last aligner until the fitting of your retention appliance.
