How Smile Shapers Works

The way Smile Shapers work is similar to what you would expect from other types of clear aligners. After we verify your candidacy for treatment, we will scan your teeth to create a digital impression. Your series of custom aligners will be fabricated, and then you can start wearing them. You should use each set for around two weeks, wearing it 20 – 22 hours each day, before you move forward with the next aligners. Many patients are done with their treatment in 12 months or so, but your case may require more or less time — it depends on the details of your situation.

Indications for Smile Shapers

Smile Shapers are a great choice for many patients who have mild to moderate cases of dental misalignment. Here are a few specific examples of issues that this treatment is commonly used to address:

Crowded Teeth

Crowded, overlapping teeth can trap food between them, increasing your risk of dental decay and gum disease. In many cases, Smile Shapers are able to shift the teeth so that each one has enough space to function optimally.

Gaps Between Teeth

Large spaces between the teeth can leave your gums vulnerable to harm and interfere with your bite. Smile Shapers may be able to move your teeth closer together.

Bite Alignment

Different types of malocclusions, such as overbite and underbite, can affect the way your mouth feels and functions. Smile Shapers can often correct such issues.

The Benefits of Smile Shapers

Some of the most outstanding benefits of Smile Shapers include:

  • On average, treatment takes just 12 – 18 months from start to finish.
  • Because the aligners are removable, you will be able to eat all of your favorite foods without worrying about how they will affect your treatment.
  • The removability of the aligners makes it easy to brush and floss your teeth.
  • Smile Shapers checkup appointments are quick and easy.
  • The aligners are made out of a smooth type of thermoplastic that is designed to rest comfortably against sensitive soft tissues in the mouth.
  • There are no metal parts, so Smile Shapers are great for patients with allergies and sensitivities.
