FAQ > bestsmile Aligner Before treatment
How does the 3D scan for the bestsmile Aligner treatment work?
During the 3D scan, we create a digital model of your jaws using a high-end 3D scanner. This only takes a few minutes and is completely painless. With this scan data, our dental technicians and our team of dentists will create your treatment plan – and your Aligners.
By the way, at your second appointment we will show you how your teeth will move into the new position step by step with the help of a 3D simulation.
What misalignments can be corrected with the bestsmile Night Aligner treatment?
Our Night Aligner can close small tooth gaps and correct minor misalignments. At your first appointment, our expert dentists will tell you whether you are a candidate for the Night Aligner treatment.
What misalignments can be corrected with the bestsmile Aligner treatment?
Our aligners can correct mild to moderate cases of misaligned teeth, ranging from tooth gaps to crooked teeth and overbites. At your first appointment, our expert dentists will tell you whether you are a candidate for the aligner treatment.
Can bestsmile Aligner close gaps between teeth?
Yes, our clear braces can also close gaps between teeth. Our expert dentists will tell you if the desired teeth correction is possible in your case.
What are attachments?
Attachments are small, tooth-coloured composite buttons that are bonded to your teeth. This allows your aligners to exert more pressure on the teeth. Attachments are used for more complex malocclusions, are hardly noticeable and are removed after treatment.
Attachments cost CHF 400 per jaw.
During your free consultation appointment, our dentists will tell you whether they are necessary for your treatment.
Is there a guarantee that the bestsmile Aligner treatment will be successful?
bestsmile has a very high success rate, but we cannot guarantee that the outcome will match 100% the predicted result.
For best results, wear your aligners 22 hours a day.
If after treatment your end result does not match the predicted result shown on the treatment plan, you will receive further aligners free of charge – until you are happy with the result.
Does the bestsmile Aligner treatment also work with crowns, implants or missing teeth?
If you have crowns, missing teeth or implants, our expert dentists will be happy to give you personal feedback.
Please let us know which dental treatments have already been done before your first appointment.
Is there a minimum age for the bestsmile Aligner treatment?
The bestsmile Aligner treatment is suitable for individuals aged 16 and over. If you are under 18, we require a written declaration of consent from your parents or legal guardian before your first appointment.
Our clear braces are not suitable for children and teenagers under 16, as tooth and jaw development is still ongoing.
Can bestsmile Aligner braces impact my health?
There are no known health risks associated with the bestsmile Aligner treatment.
Is the bestsmile Aligner treatment possible during pregnancy?
Usually not. During pregnancy, hormonal changes take place that would affect your gums and therefore your treatment. Furthermore, taking X-rays during pregnancy is not recommended due to radiation exposure.
We would be happy to welcome you after your pregnancy.
