A few generations ago, the concept of clear aligners may have seemed outlandish to patients and dental professionals alike. Today, though, they are commonplace; more and more companies are offering them, from premium brands like Invisalign to DIY options like Byte and SmileDirectClub. You are spoiled for choice! When you are weighing your options, one factor you should consider is the technology involved in the treatment process. Let’s talk about some of the state-of-the-art tools that Nu Smile Aligners use. It is one of the most advanced systems on the market!

Smile Preview

Are you curious about what your teeth might look like after your overbite, crooked teeth, or other alignment issues are corrected? Thanks to modern technology, the Nu Smile team can use photos and scans of your teeth to give you a realistic preview of your treatment results. Not only will this help you decide if you want to commit to Nu Smile, but it will also give you something to look forward to and motivate you to stay on track with wearing your aligners.

Digital Tooth Scans and Impressions

If you have ever had to get a dental restoration, like a crown, you probably had to bite into a gooey substance so your dentist could get an accurate mold of your teeth. The process may have been uncomfortable, and if any mistakes were made, you might have had to do it multiple times. Some clear aligner brands still use this method, and a few brands even expect patients to take their own impressions!

Today, a better way of taking impressions is available. Nu Smile Aligners use an intraoral scanner to capture thousands of images of your teeth, which are then assembled into a digital, three-dimensional representation of your smile. The process is quick, comfortable, and highly accurate.

Advanced Treatment Planning

Dr. G, the dentist behind the Nu Smile system, uses advanced software to map out your tooth movements. Not only does this play a key role in designing your aligners, but it also provides you with an estimate of how long your treatment will take. Additionally, it helps the Nu Smile team monitor your progress throughout your journey with clear aligners.

3D Printing

Once your treatment plan is finalized, your aligners will be fabricated in our local New Jersey facility. An advanced 3D printer will create them out of biocompatible materials (rather than the cheap plastic used by some brands). You can expect your aligners to fit well and be as comfortable as possible as they work to straighten your teeth and provide you with the healthy, attractive smile you deserve.

Technology plays a key role in the clear aligner process. Reach out to the Nu Smile team to learn more about the remarkable tools involved in this treatment.

Meet Dr. G
