How are Zenyum and Dr. WonderSmile different?

Here is an extraction of the main differences between Zenyum Invisible Braces and Dr. WonderSmile based on the summary table above.

Clinic Locations

Dr. WonderSmile operates at 2 clinic locations, while Zenyum works with a network of dentists across Singapore at various locations. This gives you more options to choose from in terms of the clinic and treating dentist to start their Smile Journey with.

Process

Dr. WonderSmile only requires you to visit the dentist once for a 3D scan. After that, all their aligner sets are delivered straight to your doorstep so you can start your treatment easily. While this makes the whole process more convenient, it may prevent your treating dentist from ensuring that your aligners are fitted well. 

Zenyum gives you the best of both worlds by giving you a more personalised Smile Journey, while making it more convenient for you to get straighter teeth. Although you need to visit the clinic at least three times throughout your Smile Journey, it allows your treating dentist or orthodontist to give you more guidance and visibility on your progress.

You’ll visit the treating dentist or orthodontist mainly for a full Consultation, 3D scans, X-rays, fitting appointment and collection of aligners, follow-up appointments and for a post-treatment review

Aligner Options

Dr. WonderSmile offers All-Day and NightClear aligners. All-Day aligners are to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day with an average treatment duration of 6 months.

NightClear aligners can help you align your teeth at night without anyone knowing. Although it only requires patients to wear their aligners for 10 hours instead of the usual 20 to 22 hours which is highly recommended for efficient teeth movement, this may prolong your treatment. 

Similar to Dr. WonderSmile’s All-Day aligners, the recommended wear time of Zenyum Invisible Braces is 20 to 22 hours. Mild to moderate cases take an average of 7 months for the completioon of treatment, while more complex cases take an average of 15 months.
