Correcting the position of teeth with the aesthetic ClearSmile Aligner has become an important form of treatment in modern adult orthodontics. ClearSmile Aligners are smooth, comfortable and almost invisible, you’ll find that you forget you’re even wearing braces, and so will everyone else!
ClearSmile is a system consisting of a series of custom made transparent aligners, used to straighten teeth or correct gaps. They can be removed at any time but even when wearing them you can enjoy laughing, smiling and go about your daily life without the worries normally associated with more obvious metal fixed braces.
Treatment with ClearSmile is comfortable because it uses very small amounts of pressure to gently and progressively correct tooth position.
The possible applications of ClearSmile Aligners are very varied.
Photographs and impressions are taken of the teeth; from these, digital calculations are made to assess your suitability for the system and give an approximate lenghth of treatment time. Images and models can be created to represent the finished smile, so you can see the expected outcome before you even start treatment!
The first aligner is fitted and the teeth may be smoothed to make room for movement. Each aligner is normally worn for a period of 1 week before the next aligner in the sequence is used. As with conventional fixed braces, ClearSmile aligners may take more or less time to have their desired effect depending on the starting position of your teeth; the number of aligners required will vary from case to case and is reflected in the cost. Regular reviews during the treatment monitor your progress.
Once teeth have moved to the desired position, a very discreet retainer holds them in place, so they remain in their new position.
