Many adults can find it embarrassing to wear a traditional device
to straighten their teeth, generally a rite of passage for teenagers needing to

By employing innovative scanners to digitally create a model of
the patient’s mouth, dentists are able to avoid using fiddly and uncomfortable manual
putty to create moulds that trays would then be created from.
Technology will always be more precise and exact than any human
hand, so by employing this technology, patients know that they are receiving
the most precise and comfortable fit imaginable.
Dentists can combine their expertise with the available technology
to create a bespoke service for each and every one of their patients. It is
exciting to watch the transformation happen before their very eyes, especially
with the visual simulation that patients can use to watch and monitor their own
Having a smile that a person is happy to share is important not
