Find the SmileUniverse partner clinic closest to your location and directly book an appointment at the clinic of your choice. You can also ask your orthodontist or dentist if he offers SmileUniverse aligners treatment.
During the consultation at the dental clinic, your dentist will examine your suitability for the treatment and when found eligible take a 3D scan or impression of your teeth. The intraoral scanner used normally doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort. At the consultation, you will also receive detailed information about your treatment.
Based on a 3D scan or impression of your teeth, SmileUniverse specialists create a personalised treatment plan for you. Before your treatment starts, the plan must be approved by the treating dentist. Once you receive the plan, you will learn, among other things, how long the treatment will last, what effects are expected, and how much it will cost. If you accept it, your personalized aligners will be manufactured in our state-of-the-art digital laboratory in Poland.
You will pick up your customized aligners at your doctor. During your visit, the dentist will tell you how to use them to make sure they do their job properly. The treatment also includes regular check-ups at the dentist's office. Thanks to these, your dctor can monitor your progress and make any adjustments, if necessary. SmileUniverse comprehensively supports its partner dental practices throughout each patient's treatment process. So you can count on the professional help of our specialists who will take care of your smile all the way through.
