If you would like a low impact brace that only you will know you are wearing then ClearSmile Aligners from Hook Dental in Hampshire could be just right for you.This clear, removable cosmetic appliance is designed to straighten your ‘smile’ teeth - the 6-8 teeth at the front of your mouth. ClearSmile Aligner technology can straighten teeth that are crowded, rotated, or tilted forward or backwards using a series of clear, thin aligners each computer designed to move your teeth just a small amount. Each aligner is worn for a week and then the next aligner in the series is fitted. The aligners typically come in sets of six and treatment normally requires between 1 and 3 sets of aligners.
Computer aided design is employed in the construction of these aligners and you will be able to see the projected results of your treatment on a virtual 3D model before you even start your treatment. Once the result is approved, the custom-made ClearSmile Aligners are fabricated using the latest in 3D printing technology.
