Tip #2: Refinements


Sometime the first set of aligners is NOT enough to get the ideal result.  Some doctors give up at this point and say this is the best you are going to get.  Others will offer to order a new set of aligners (called a refinement) but charge you for this.  Ordering refinements are a standard procedure; accepting subpar results are an easy way out.  In more difficult cases, we may even order 2-3 refinements to get the ideal result at no additional cost to the patient.  Make sure you ask your doctor if refinements are including in your fee.
