Straighter Smile Without Wires & Brackets With Clear Aligners

An effective way to correct misaligned teeth is by wearing braces. However, they can be a challenge to get used to and can make you feel self-conscious about your smile.

Wearing traditional metal braces is a big commitment, both in terms of time and money. It’s estimated that it can take up to 18 months for conventional braces to have the desired effect on your teeth. If you are looking for an alternative to braces that is fast-acting and affordable, then clear custom aligners may be right for you.

Clear aligners, also called invisible braces, are used in orthodontic treatments to fix misaligned or crooked teeth. Designed to be a convenient and flexible alternative to braces, they are removable and virtually invisible.

At Smiles in Currambine, we offer the SmileStyler Teeth Aligner brand. SmileStyler is a sequential clear aligner system that is locally manufactured in Australia using superior quality materials and the latest dental technology. It provides effective results in realigning teeth. SmileStyler Teeth Aligners are designed for more than just correcting crooked or crowded teeth and closing gaps; they also correct a number of different aesthetic and functional issues such as overbites, crossbites, and other malocclusions.

8 Benefits of Clear Aligners You Should Know

There are an array of reasons why our patients love choosing the SmileStyler system of clear custom aligners:

Why Choose Smiles in Currambine for Clear Aligner Treatments in Currambine, Western Australia

Our SmileStyler Teeth Aligners are practically invisible and can be worn with ease. They offer a convenient option that is comfortable and affordable. The SmileStyler Teeth Aligner brand is manufactured by an Australian aligner company. 

 

It offers a more customised treatment than Invisalign orthodontics. Instead of one scan of your smile and pre-printed aligner trays (like Invisalign systems), SmileStyler prints your aligners at specific phases of treatment. This approach provides ongoing accuracy to prevent complications or relapse. In contrast, systems like Invisalign must be reprogrammed entirely if a tooth isn’t responding correctly. 

We know how important it is for our patients to feel confident in their smile transformation, which is why we strive to provide the best possible service at an affordable price point. With our flexible financing options, everyone can afford this treatment! Contact our friendly team today if you would like more information on getting started with clear, custom-fit, removable aligners.

Clear aligners are ideal for people with spacing or crowding issues that are mild to moderate. Clear aligners, however, are not for everyone. If you want to learn whether orthodontic aligners are right for you, contact us to schedule a consultation with one of our Currambine dentists for your free consultation. We will provide you with information about clear aligner treatment along with the risks, benefits, and consequences of the procedure. We will conduct an initial comprehensive assessment to find out if you are a suitable candidate for Smilestyler or refer you to a qualified orthodontist if required.

There are many orthodontic treatment options for aligning your teeth. There are two options to straighten your teeth: clear aligners and dental braces. Each teeth straightening process has its own pros and cons, so you should consider them carefully before deciding which to choose.

  1. Cost: While the price of any orthodontic work depends on the complexity and length of treatment time, clear aligners are a more affordable option than traditional braces.
  2. Appearance: Traditional metal braces involve brackets that are cemented to each of your teeth with a wire joining them. On the other hand, invisible aligners are almost invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.
  3. Maintenance: Regular braces require special care and are challenging to clean. Clear aligners are easier to clean because they are removable. You won’t find it difficult to practice oral hygiene and clean around your aligner appliances, as is the case with traditional braces, so that they won’t compromise the health of your teeth.
  4. Treatment Duration: Clear aligner treatments can straighten teeth in less time than traditional braces.
  5. Food Restrictions: Some types of food, like sticky and crunchy foods, should be avoided when wearing braces. On the other hand, you can take the clear aligners out when you eat, so you won’t have to give up your favourite foods.
  6. Efficacy: Clear aligners are an effective orthodontic solution for mild to moderate dental cases. Severe cases may require traditional braces.

SmileStyler clear aligners work the same way as traditional braces; they move teeth little by little. We will examine and assess your teeth during your first visit and take diagnostic records, such as x-rays, photographs, impressions, and digital scans. With the data gathered, we can have a diagnosis, and we will use the SmileStyler digital software to design your smile plan and develop the orthodontic treatment process of guiding your teeth into healthy positions.

A thermoplastic aligner is created using your digital scan as a starting point to achieve the end goal. Wearing the SmileStyler Teeth Aligner puts gentle pressure on the teeth, ever-so-slightly repositioning them. The recommendation is that you wear your clear aligners for 22 hours a day, or as prescribed by your orthodontist. You have to wear each set of aligners for a week or two before moving on to the next set. Instead of one scan of your smile and pre-printed alignment trays (like Invisalign systems), SmileStyler prints your aligners at specific phases of treatment to ensure accuracy and prevent complications. Following the custom treatment plan, teeth will move into their ideal positions over time. Depending on the needs of each patient, the number of aligners needed may vary. Similar to traditional braces, a custom-made retainer may be required after teeth have been moved into their new position.

You have to wear your clear aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day or as prescribed by your dentist or orthodontist to ensure that they are effective. You can only remove them when you eat or brush your teeth to prevent them from wearing down over time.

The cost of a SmileStyler Teeth Aligner treatment can vary depending on your case and treatment length. Usually, the price ranges between $5,000 and $7,500. After your first consultation and scan at Smiles in Currambine, we will be able to give you an accurate quote for the treatments.
