What Is SmileStyler®: The New Way to Get Straight Teeth

Your teeth are one of the most important features of your face. They play a major role in both your appearance and your oral health. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your teeth are properly aligned.

Misaligned teeth can lead to a number of dental problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and even mouth cancer. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to correct misaligned teeth. There’s a new option for patients who want to get straight teeth, and it doesn’t involve surgery or metal braces.

SmileStyler Clear Aligner is a revolutionary new device and the latest innovation in oral care. It’s a great alternative to braces if you’re looking for a fast, easy, and affordable way to get aligned teeth. If you want to achieve your dream smile, read on to learn more about SmileStyler.

What Is SmileStyler?

what is smilestyler

SmileStyler is an orthodontic system that uses clear, removable aligners to reposition your teeth precisely. The aligners are comfortable and virtually invisible, so you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.

SmileStyler Clear Aligner is the perfect solution for people who want a healthier smile but don’t want to go through the hassle of traditional braces. Plus, because the aligners are removable, you can still eat all your favourite foods and brush and floss as usual.

How Does SmileStyler Work?

SmileStyler is an invisible form of orthodontic treatment known as a clear aligner. It uses clear, removable trays to move and straighten the teeth. Unlike traditional metal braces, clear aligners do not require any screws or brackets on the teeth, which can help reduce discomfort and damage to the gums and oral tissues.

In addition, clear aligners are custom-designed for each patient’s unique smile, allowing them to achieve the exact look they desire. The clear aligners work by progressively pushing the teeth into place based on each patient’s specific treatment plan. Over time, this gradual movement slowly moves the teeth into their ideal positions, resulting in a healthy, attractive smile.

Whether you need minor tooth correction or extensive realignment, this clear aligner system can provide an effective and comfortable solution for straighter teeth.

Common Dental Cosmetic Issues that SmileStyler Can Address

common dental cosmetic issues that smilestyler can address

SmileStyler can help address a wide variety of dental cosmetic issues, including:

  • Crossbite: A type of teeth misalignment, or malocclusion, where the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth.
  • Crowding: An overcrowded mouth is one in which there is not enough room for all of the teeth to fit properly. This may result in teeth that are twisted or displaced.
  • Diastema (Gapped Teeth): A condition in which a gap exists between the teeth.
  • Gummy smile: The gums become visible when smiling.
  • Narrow smile: When smiling, a negative space is present between the side of the back teeth and the corner of the mouth. It appears as a dark space.
  • Open bite: This happens when the front part of the upper and lower teeth slant outward. They do not touch when the mouth is closed.
  • Overbite: A condition where the upper front teeth overlap with the lower front teeth.
  • Underbite: A condition where the lower front teeth overlap with the upper front teeth.

The Benefits of SmileStyler

Aside from oral health benefits, there are advantages to using the SmileStyler orthodontic aligners, such as:

  • They’re comfortable
    Clear aligners such as SmileStyler are smooth and comfortable to wear so that they may fit correctly inside your lips and cheeks. You will probably feel tightness for the first few weeks. However, this is completely normal as it is the pressure that is gently aligning your teeth.
  • They’re easy to clean
    If you’ve ever worn fixed braces, you may already know how tough it is to brush around them, and if you don’t clean your teeth properly, you risk decalcification and tooth decay. However, clear aligners are very simple to clean; simply take them out and clean all teeth surfaces.
  • They’re invisible
    The nicest thing about clear aligners is that they’re virtually unnoticeable. There are no unsightly metal wires and brackets to be seen. While they aren’t difficult to spot from a distance, friends will have to get uncomfortably close for others to notice them.
  • They’re convenient
    There are no inconvenient diet restrictions with SmileStyler; you may simply remove your aligners while eating and drinking.
  • Phased delivery ensures more predictable results
    Every three months, your dentist will take an intra-oral scan or impression to ensure you’re getting the desired effect. This also helps to minimise the need for additional, time-consuming refinements or additional aligners after treatment is finished.
  • They’re safe
    SmileStyler clear aligners employ cutting-edge dental technology and high-quality thermoplastic polyurethane materials that are BPA and phthalate-free.
  • Allows for 3D Visualisations
    With advanced 3D scanning technology, you will receive a 3D treatment plan. With this, you will see what your teeth will look like after treatment, even before treatment has started.

What Is the Treatment Process for SmileStyler?

SmileStyler involves a multistep process which is as follows:

Step 1: Initial consultation

The consultation is the first step in receiving SmileStyler. This is when a dentist will assess whether you’re a good candidate for treatment. If you’re a good fit, a thorough dental examination and cleaning will be done to ensure that your teeth, gums, and jaw joints are in excellent condition. Before SmileStyler can begin, any necessary repairs must be completed.

Step 2: Second consultation

The dental team uses an intraoral scanner to create 3D representations of your teeth.

The advantage of this procedure is that there are no messy moulds involved. You might as well say goodbye to uncomfortable teeth moulds because SmileStyler is all done digitally.

SmileStyler will receive the 3D scans and develop an orthodontic treatment plan for you. The plan will indicate how your teeth are expected to move throughout treatment.

Step 3: Reviewing the treatment plan

SmileStyler will send the scans back to your dentist. After both of you have given your consent to the personalised treatment plan, SmileStyler will make your custom-made clear aligners. Because SmileStyler is an Australian-based service, you’ll get your aligners within a few days.

Step 4: Wearing the aligners

You will use several sets of aligners throughout the course of treatment. Unless otherwise directed by your dentist, you must wear each set of active aligners for two weeks.

Initially, you’ll receive a set of aligners that will last for 6-12 weeks. You’ll go back to your dentist for another scan of your teeth at the conclusion of these phases of therapy. Your next series of aligners will be based on these new images.

Step 5: Retainers

A pair of retainers will be prescribed to prevent relapse when your teeth have reached their desired position after the active phase of treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for SmileStyler?

While SmileStyler helps deal with several orthodontic issues, some dental issues are difficult to address with SmileStyler.

You won’t be a good candidate for SmileStyler if you have the following dental conditions:

  • Severe Overbite/Underbite: In an overbite, your top teeth appear to protrude beyond your bottom teeth. An underbite is the opposite: your bottom teeth extend past your top ones. SmileStyler treatment may not be successful in severe overbite or underbite situations. Metal braces are needed to address the problem.
  • Rotated Teeth: Overcrowding can cause teeth to move into the wrong position. Clear aligners can typically address this issue in most cases – but not when it is severe. In cases such as this, SmileStyler will not be effective.
  • Large Teeth Gaps: Clear aligners like SmileStyler can sometimes close small gaps between teeth, but it does not always do so for large teeth gaps.
  • Intrusions and Extrusions: Occasionally, a patient’s teeth must be moved up or down in their mouth. SmileStyler can’t correct this issue, known as intrusion or extrusion. Instead, a patient would need to wear traditional braces.

Additionally, people with a severe crossbite, multiple missing teeth, and gum disease are not suitable candidates for SmileStyler.

How Often Should I Be Wearing My SmileStyler Aligners?

SmileStyler should be worn every day for at least 22 hours for better results. They may be removed for eating, brushing or flossing, but you can continue to drink with them on. When needed, these aligners are comfortable and easy to remove at any time.

Brushing your teeth after changing the aligners and eating food is recommended. This will keep your teeth and aligners cleaner. Every time you reinsert the aligners, you’ll need to use a Chew Tool, which should be kept for at least 30 minutes.

How Long Is the SmileStyler Treatment?

Treatment time varies from person to person since everyone is unique and seeks different outcomes. It also depends on the degree of your problem and whether you’ve been wearing your aligners properly.

It takes an average of 6 months for a simple correction, and between 12-24 months for major cases. In short, SmileStyler treatment may last for 6-24 months on average.

Are There Any Disadvantages with SmileStyler?

SmileStyler offers many benefits. Yet, there are some disadvantages associated with them. These include:

  • Longer duration of wear
    Although traditional braces restore teeth more quickly than invisible aligners, one of the primary drawbacks of the latter is that they have to be worn for a longer duration.
  • Not for severely misaligned or crooked teeth
    Clear braces are not advised for severe conditions. If your crowded teeth are due to a jaw that is too small, or if a misaligned jaw causes your underbite or overbite, clear aligners will not correct these issues. Instead, an orthodontist will be required to devise a more comprehensive treatment strategy.
  • Rigorous oral hygiene requirement
    You’ll have to brush and floss your teeth more frequently. You need to brush your teeth after eating and drinking any non-water beverage. If you don’t clean all of the plaque and food debris from your teeth, you’ll have a higher chance of getting cavities.
  • Requires compliance
    To get the most out of SmileStyler, you must wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day. If you think you’ll be tempted to remove them more frequently, it may not be the best option for you.

How Much Does SmileStyler Cost?

The price of a SmileStyler Teeth Aligner treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis and depends on the length of the treatment. The average cost is between $5,000 and $7,500.
