WHAT IS SMILELIGN?
Teeth straightening, known within dentistry as Orthodontics, traditionally used metal brackets and ugly wires to straighten your teeth. By contrast, Smilelign is an invisible orthodontic aligner system that uses the latest 3D CADCAM technology on the UK dental market. It consists of a series of clear braces that move teeth in small increments – until they are in the desired position.

How Does Smilelign work?
HOW TO STRAIGHTEN MY TEETH?
So many of us wonder how to get straight teeth. With Smilelign, treatment is simple, quick and affordable. There are 4 very simple steps to getting your perfect smile with Smilelign Clear Aligners.
1. Visit a Smilelign Dentist
You can find a local Smilelign Clinic by using our online search, click here. In addition, your own dentist may also be able to offer Smilelign treatment – we would be delighted to discuss this with them.
2. Impressions or intra-oral scan of teeth
Your dentist will take some impressions of your teeth using a putty-type material, or they may take 3D images with an intra-oral scanner. These methods are totally painless and take only a couple of minutes.
3. Pre-Aligner Fitting
The aligners are custom-made in our laboratory. The Pre-aligner, along with before and after images of your teeth, will be sent to your dentist. Once happy, your dentist will contact us to tell us to complete the remainder of the aligners for your treatment.
4. Complete Treatment
Your dentist will monitor your Smilelign treatment as you progress through the aligners. At the end of treatment, it is strongly encouraged that you use a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position. Your dentist can advise further on this.
