Refiners - what are they?

Your body is a complex machine, and teeth are no different. Each tooth is layered with collage fibres, vessels and strong bone plates surround it.

We we plan your treatment, moving the teeth are like a chess game. One tooth moves to make space for the other.

Once treatment is complete, refiners are special aligners, trying to nudge the teeth further.

Why are they needed?

Teeth can be stubborn, some roots are longer than others, whilst others have strong elastic collagen fibres resisting tooth movement. 

Refiners may be needed to push the teeth a little more, but this is if the tooth wants to still behave!

How can I get refiners?

Toothfairy do special discounts for its patients with a refiner package. If you need up to four more refiners, the cost of the package is heavily discounted to £99.

This involves taking new measurements and literally replanning your case, like a brand new patient. 

If you want a refiner package reach out to your dentist and they can assess your case to see if you are suitable.
