Dr. Ste. Marie fabricates his own Str8liners aligners, making us the only one-stop aligner treatment center in the Lafayette area! Str8liners are a series of invisible retainers that gently straighten your teeth. Each aligner moves teeth a small amount. Over a series of aligners, large tooth movements can be achieved.
Why choose in-house aligners?
It all comes down to quality!
No outsourcing of aligner fabrication means the same quality of aligner at a fraction of the cost for patients. No middleman means better, faster results. Since the aligners are produced and fabricated in the office, there is no need to communicate back and forth with an outside lab. Aligners are made correctly the first time!
The Str8liners Advantage
- Str8liners are nearly invisible, as they use a system of clear, removable trays used to straighten teeth. No metal, no brackets, and no wires!
- Str8liners are removable, making it easier for you to brush and floss after meals and maintain the health of your teeth and gums.
- Str8liners usually complete cases sooner than traditional braces. Typical treatment length varies from two weeks to two years depending on the severity of the case.
Smile Success with Str8liners
Wear Str8liners as prescribed—at least 20 hours per day. Adequate wear is the most important factor in treatment success. You’ll also need to visit our Lafayette or Opelousas orthodontic office every six to ten weeks so we can monitor your progress and give you new sets of aligners.
If you're interested in orthodontic treatment with Str8liners clear aligners, schedule an appointment and talk to Dr. Ste. Marie about whether this is the right treatment option for you. Your consultation is the first step toward achieving the beautiful smile you've always wanted.
