How to Get Straight Teeth at Home
If your dental alignment need is simple, moderate, or even complex, our home teeth straightening kits will help you straighten your smile. Over six to nine months, the virtually invisible aligner will gradually move your front teeth into their ideal alignment and straighten your smile without the need for braces.
If you’re unsure whether you’ll be suitable for our at-home clear braces, you can securely submit photos of your teeth for an expert orthodontist to assess with our free assessment. Your consultation will be completely free of charge.
If you are suitable, you’ll need to order an impression kit. This will contain everything you need to get your 3D treatment plan. From your submitted dental moulds, an expert dentist or orthodontist will then show you how teeth straightening at home can transform your smile and recommend your individual treatment.
Below you can find our impression kit process to receiving your clear teeth aligners.
Who is Suitable for Our Teeth Straightening Aligners?
For a convenient and cost-effective way to straighten your teeth, you’ll need to be:
- Over 18 years old
- Have crowding or gaps that aren’t extremely complex
- In good dental health & have visited your dentist in the last six months
- Rocking all your own teeth
- Willing to wear your aligners as instructed
- Wanting to achieve the best smile you can
Who Isn’t Suitable for Teeth Straightening at Home?
Teeth straightening at home with clear, removable aligners is perfect for most but isn’t for everyone. Here are three reasons why you may not be suitable for at-home braces:
- Your Dental Alignment Need is Severe
Clear aligners do a brilliant job for those who need minimal to moderate dental alignment. However, if you have significant gaps between your teeth or have teeth that are too rotated or overcrowded, the movement created from a removable at-home aligner alone won’t be sufficient to straighten your smile.
But don’t worry. Even if your straightening needs are pretty complex, SmartSmileCo may still be able to help you sort out your smile. You’ll probably just need to pop along to see a dentist as part of your treatment planning and possibly throughout your treatment too. Why not start your free consultation today to discover if we can help?
- You Are Not in Good Dental Health
You’ll need healthy teeth and gums before starting your teeth straightening at-home treatment. If you have gum disease or tooth decay, these issues need to be addressed and stabilised before getting started with any teeth straightening.
Starting teeth straightening with gum disease can make your problem worse and cause your teeth straightening treatment to be unsuccessful. Depending on the severity of the gum disease, your teeth may be unstable. Wearing a retainer gently puts pressure on the teeth to move them into the desired position, so should your teeth already be unstable, this may result in unpredictable and unwanted tooth movement.
Did you know that having properly aligned teeth is likely to improve your gum health? It’s true. Gums fit more firmly around straight teeth, so goodbye gum disease. And as our clear aligners are removable, you’ll also be able to floss and brush as usual, unlike when wearing a traditional brace.
- You Don’t Have Completely Natural Teeth
As well as being problem-free, your teeth need to be completely natural. So no veneers, implants, crowns, bridges or replacement teeth, as these can cause issues with the teeth straightening process. If you don’t have all-natural gnashers, you’ll need a face-to-face appointment with an orthodontist.
Although not suitable for everyone, remote orthodontistry is a convenient, cost-effective, and successful way to a killer smile for most people.
