Smilelign Clear aligners:

What is Smilelign?

A clear orthodontic treatment, consisting of a series of virtually invisible, removable, aligners which are designed to fix misalignment issues. Each clear aligner is slightly different to its predecessor and successor, working together to create their unique desired smile, mapped out by our skilled Smilelign technicians.

The perks of Smilelign!

Manufactured entirely in the UK at our Sheffield laboratory. Our technicians are always on the end of the phone to offer full clinical and technical support should you ever need any advice. We map every stage of your patient's journey, the free software is available for you to show your patient what is expected of their treatment. Each aligner is capable of 0.3 mm of movement, which results in faster results, when compared to other clear aligner options out there. Exclusive to Smilelign we offer pre-aligners, a chance for patients to get a feel for aligners, and if they’re in fact something they can slot into their day to day.

More about Smilelign


What is it?

A self ligating bracket system offering patients a discreet way to straighten their teeth, created by using the most up-to-date laser technology. The design of Smilefixed is to ensure a subtle appearance, with a smooth surface, and a low profile bracket to keep the process as comfortable for the patient as possible. Providing for all patient preferences, we offer both metal and ceramic brackets dependent on the wants of the patient.

The perks of Smilefixed!

Sliding mechanics provide a safe and fast treatment, with little force needed to move teeth to their desired position. The composition is made to be stronger, and less susceptible to staining and abrasion, than many other brackets. Smilefixed brackets are also supplied with a fish-grate base which allows a strong mechanical bond, as well as easy de-bonding.

Smilefixed kits are supplied with everything you need to treat a single patient. This ensures you have no need to store excess archwires and brackets at your practice, clearing space, resulting in an increased effectiveness and efficient service for the patient.
