bestsmile manufactures transparent braces, also known as aligners. But what are the differences compared to Invisalign?
The idea behind the aligner was to create a modern and comfortable orthodontic appliance. Conventional braces are not removable and brackets and wires are clearly visible. Thanks to their high level of comfort and more discreet appearance, aligners are very popular among teenagers and adults who wish to straighten their teeth.
Many dentists worldwide offer Invisalign treatments. The manufacturer, Align Technology from the USA, produces its aligners in Mexico* and their 3D scanners come from Cadent, a company located in Israel** and acquired in 2011. But does it make sense for a Swiss dentist to order dental appliances for his patients in the USA, which are then manufactured in Mexico and then sent to Switzerland?
At bestsmile, all production steps take place in Switzerland. In the numerous bestsmile practices, patients can receive personal advice and their individual treatment plan is made on the basis of the 3D scan of their teeth. The bestsmile Aligners are then produced directly in the company’s own laboratories in Winterthur. In these laboratories, the dental models are 3D-printed, a PET film is adapted to the printed model, quality checks are carried out and finally the aligners sets are sent to the practices.
Some alternative providers of dental aligners do not offer any in-person consultation or examination appointments by a specialist dentist. When choosing an alternative to Invisalign, experts advise against providers who work exclusively online and without direct contact with dentists. Orthodontic treatments should always be supervised by a dentist or orthodontist.
At bestsmile, patients are accompanied by dentists or orthodontists throughout their entire treatment starting from the first consultation, during all follow-up visits and finally at the final check-up. If the patient has any further concerns during the treatment, the Customer Service and our team of orthodontists and specialised dentists are always available.
With bestsmile, it doesn't matter whether you need two or eight check-up appointments – the price remains the same and the dental services are not charged separately. The bestsmile treatment is available at a fixed price.
However, there are some optional services and treatments that are charged individually, such as the panoramic X-ray image, attachments or wire retainers. Your bestsmile dentist will evaluate if in your case one of these is needed and will give you all necessary information.
Thanks to the production in our own labs in Switzerland and the use of state-of-the-art technology, bestsmile can offer the aligner treatment from just CHF 1990, which is significantly lower than the prices of other providers.
bestsmile offers the option of monthly instalments starting from CHF 40/month.
Thanks to bestsmile, anyone who wants to have their teeth straightened these days can do so with a regional product and at a fair price. At bestsmile, efficiency and Swiss quality are the number one priority. Here is a brief summary of the bestsmile advantages:
