Have you ever wondered how those “invisible” braces work their magic? Well, we’ll take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of how Zenyum Invisible Braces actually improve your smile! 

Say goodbye to traditional metal braces and get ready to discover the innovative technology that’s transforming smiles in the most discreet way possible.

How Do Aligners Work To Shift Your Teeth?

Zenyum has two treatment options – ZenyumClear™ and ZenyumClear™ Plus. The first helps patients with mild cases and the second treatment option is offered for patients with more complex cases. Every patient undergoing Zenyum treatment will have clear aligner sets that are 3D-printed and custom-made to fit their teeth snugly. 

Each aligner progressively moves individual teeth into their correct positions by applying mild pressure to those teeth. Your teeth will slowly continue to move into their desired positions as you progress through your aligner sets. 

You will switch to the next set in the series once you have worn a set of aligners, roughly every ten days. The best part is that you can track your treatment through the Zenyum App

After completing your treatment, your dentist will encourage you to get started on retainers daily for at least three months. This will definitely keep your gorgeous new smile straight – for a long time to come!

Do Zenyum aligners work as well as braces?

Yes! When it comes to fixing mild to moderate teeth issues, Zenyum Invisible Braces are commonly seen as a reliable alternative to traditional braces.

One major benefit of Zenyum clear aligners is that they’re super discreet, so if you’re worried about people noticing your braces, Zenyum aligners are a great option. Plus, they’re removable, so you can easily maintain your oral hygiene and enjoy all your favourite foods while straightening your teeth.

What’s the difference between ZenyumClear™ vs ZenyumClear™Plus?
