As soon as we have received suitable impressions from you, we will carry out the treatment planning and send you a 3D digital simulation called a Smile Projection to view 4-5 weeks. The whole process usually takes 7-8 weeks, unless there are any unforeseen circumstances.
The Smile Projection is a proposed 3D treatment plan which is prescribed by our technical team. In the projection we display ‘Before & After’ positions of your teeth. This smile projection is sent to you for approval. We start fabricating the aligners once you have approved them but if you are not satisfied with the smile projection, you can request modifications to be carried out.

After receiving back successful impression from the candidate, it normally takes 12-14 business days to create smile projection of the candidate.
