Current Issue , Product Profile

Editor’s intro: The SunClear 3D aligner solution is affordable and a clear alternative to the more expensive aligner systems. Read about how the process and how patients who were previously unable to complete an aligner plan due to cost or complexity can enjoy the health benefits of aligned teeth.

More and more patients are asking for aligners, but due to costly aligner lab fees, many are forced to decline treatment or go online for do-it-yourself aligners. Thanks to SunClear 3D aligner design software and manufacturing solution, digital orthodontics has now become more affordable. SunClear aligners are the clear alternative to expensive and overpriced aligner systems.

Sun Dental Labs now offers a doctor-supervised state-of-the-art comprehensive treatment that is safe and effective. Once the necessary records are uploaded, a custom and personalized aligner plan is generated by our team. Then you can use the SunClear 3D orthodontic software to review, modify, and accept the plan.

We can accept digital STL files from any intraoral or desktop scanner for aligner treatment. The device is customized for each patient and follows a prescription as submitted by the dentist.

What does the SunClear Aligner fee include?

The fee includes a full-customized aligner plan, including any number of revisions until approved. There are no setup fees ($95 value), and a free set of retainers ($99 value) is included. There is also one free refinement included during treatment. The base fee includes up to 20 aligners/trays, and only $15 per aligner above 20 aligners. We will charge your credit card when the case is completed and shipped out.

How does the process work?

The process is the same as with traditional vendors. To create an account using the Google Chrome browser, please access; toward the bottom of the page there is a link to create your SunClear Account. On this page, you will fill out your practice information, and you will receive an emailed response back with your portal login information. Once you receive your login information, using the Google Chrome browser again, you can log into your SunClear Account. This is where you will be able to enter patients and create cases for them by uploading their records, including a panoramic X-ray, digital models (if applicable), and the patient photos. Once the patient information is entered with the treatment objectives, we will create a treatment plan for you to approve using the information that was provided to us. Once the treatment plan is created, you will be able to share the simulated tooth movement with the patients enabling them to see how their teeth will look once treatment is completed.

The straight talk

Poorly aligned teeth can put extra stress and pressure on your teeth and jawbone, which can cause:

It’s easier to brush and floss around properly aligned teeth, and you are less likely to have pockets between gums and teeth that trap bacteria and food that may cause plaque, decay, and bad breath. Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque, tooth decay, and the risk of gum disease.

Now thanks to SunClear aligners, patients who were previously unable to complete an aligner plan due to cost or complexity can enjoy the health benefits of aligned teeth
