Teeth Straightening

EZ SMILE teeth aligners are designed to straighten your teeth gradually and over time with small movements that apply gentle pressure to your teeth. Our clear aligners are designed for your specific requirements, which means that each aligner will play a different role in moving your teeth into the desired position. Some teeth may require more movement than others which means that some teeth will need more pressure applied to them through your custom aligners.

Everyone is different, which is why we approach aligners on a case-by-case basis. Before we can determine if you are the right fit for aligners, we conduct a comprehensive assessment and evaluation. From there, we can determine the best course of action for your unique circumstances. If we believe that you are not the right fit or you require a different form of treatment, we’ll let you know – it’s that simple.

Teeth straightening is a work in progress. At the end of your treatment, you will need to continue to wear a retainer to ensure that your teeth maintain their new, corrected position. The retainer should be worn full-time for the first two to four weeks post treatment, or until you feel your teeth are not moving when retainer is out for the day, and then each night after that. If you don’t wear them each night you risk teeth moving again over time. This is the same for any teeth straightening process, clear aligners or metal braces.

Unlike some of the other companies on the market, we won’t try to charge you an additional fee for your initial retainers. Your first set of retainers are included in the cost of your aligners.

Retainers are designed to last for a period of 6 months. When required, you can purchase additional retainers for $179 per set.

Each case is different, so it is not possible to tell without reviewing your individual case and circumstances. In most cases, treatment will take somewhere between 4-8 months depending on the individual.

Getting the most out of aligners means making a serious commitment to getting the smile you want. You need to commit to wearing your aligners for a period of 20-hours each day. The more you commit, the better (and generally, faster) the results will be.

Through gentle controlled force our clear aligners are designed to gradually move the teeth into the desired position as per your specifically created treatment plan. Our clear aligners come as a set of multiple aligners. You’ll begin wearing a new set of aligners every two to three weeks.

There may be some discomfort initially as your mouth becomes accustomed to wearing the aligners and they initiate the movement of your teeth. This discomfort only lasts a few days and is really an indication that the aligners are doing their work. Some discomfort may recur, albeit in a more minor way when you move to the next aligner in the sequence.
