Eliners are a modern alternative to braces
With the help of liners – transparent caps for teeth alignment – and modern 3D technologies, it is now possible to align teeth as invisibly as possible. The liners are made of medical plastic, which creates the feeling of a perfectly smooth surface. Unlike braces, the patient has no doubts about the appearance during the entire period of treatment with liners.
CAP FOR ALIGNMENT OF TEETH
Each cap of liners is made of transparent plastic on which retention points are established. They perform the function of shifting the dentition by using a durable material – composite. This material is applied to the tooth, and the mouthpiece itself is already fixed on it.
