Align Technology launches SmileView

March 14, 2019

The automated system is engineered to leverage a database of tooth movements from more than 6 million Invisalign cases to provide a simulation of the patient's dentition and projected outcome.

Align Technology, Inc. announced the launch of SmileView, an online tool designed to help prospective Invisalign patients visualize a new, straighter smile before they opt for Invisalign treatment. Align’s smile modelling tool is being showcased at the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne March 12-16.

SmileView tool is a computer-generated simulation of how a person’s smile may look after teeth straightening.* Within 60 seconds of taking a smiling selfie using the SmileView online tool on their smartphone or tablet, prospective patients can reportedly see what their new smile and straighter teeth may look like, with their own facial features.

Align’s new SmileView visualization tool is designed to drive awareness and demand for teeth straightening using Invisalign treatment by engaging consumers and allowing them to see a simulation of what their new smile could look like. For those who request a consultation with an Invisalign doctor as the next step, the SmileView tool will direct the users to the nearest doctors in their area via the Find a Doctor tool or via Align’s Smile Concierge team that can help consumers find an experienced doctor in their area and schedule an appointment.

Using a highly sophisticated machine learning algorithm, the automated system is engineered to leverage a database of tooth movements from more than 6 million Invisalign cases to provide a simulation of the person’s dentition and projected outcome.

Align’s SmileView online tool is now available via local consumer websites in the U.S., Canada, Brazil, the United Kingdom and Poland, with more markets to follow later this year.
