Launched in 2018, we pioneered the Indian market with the idea to give comfortable smile makeovers backed by the latest dental technology. It is one of the leading aligner companies in India and with over 1,00,000+ smiles designed (and counting!), we’re thrilled to take you behind the scenes, and into our lab to confirm that your smiles are indeed in good hands.
Founded by people who love to smile and give smile makeovers, toothsi is the brainchild of four experienced orthodontists turned ortho-preneurs— Dr Arpi Mehta, Dr Pravin Shetty, Dr Manjul Jain, and Dr Anirudha Kale, who are collectively bringing their globally-acquired proficiency to India. So your smile makeover treatment is not only comfortable and backed by world-class 3D technology but also supervised by a team of 100+ expert in-house dentists and orthodontists.
Now without further ado, we leave you with one of our co-founders, Dr Pravin Shetty, as he takes you on a virtual tour of the toothsi lab in the video below— where your aligners are made:
In the video, watch Dr Pravin Shetty uncovers toothsi’s state-of-the-art facilities and takes you step-by-step through the process that includes scanning > planning > designing > crafting > packaging of your aligners in our lab. But before we get into the nitty-gritty details, here are some important aspects that set us apart:
Being one of the biggest aligner manufacturing facilities in India (spread across 20,000 square feet), our lab is ISO 13485 certified for high- quality assurance.
We have a futuristic robotic aligner trimming module to create the perfect aligner shape.
For your aligners, we use only high-grade FDA-approved and CE-certified sheets, which are made and imported from the USA.
These sheets are also BPA-free and phthalate-free, which means zero health risks to you and those creating them for you.
With the increasing demand for clear aligner manufacturing, we set up an in-house manufacturing unit, which is 13485:2016 Quality Management System certified by Zenith Quality Assessors Pvt. Ltd. for high-quality assurance. This certification also gurantees global standard quality management and safety.
Besides, there’s a designated area in our lab for the 3D machines that manufacture 100,000 a month without compromising design or quality.
Once you give us the approval to go ahead with your toothsi treatment plan, here is a step-by-step breakdown of how your aligners (or invisible braces) are made before they reach your doorsteps:
Step 1 - First, your virtual smile plan is designed by our experts for printing, then we start the 3D printing process of your aligners.
Step 2 - After your aligner mould is 3D printed, we send it to the thermoforming machine. In this process, which is also known as aligner punching, we use high-grade FDA-approved and CE-certified sheets to ensure the best quality.
Step 3 - Now that your aligner moulds are ready, they are laser-marked for easy identification, which helps the lab experts keep track of the aligners in the upcoming processes. The aligners are marked with the customer’s name, aligner no., and other details by an advanced laser marking machine.
Step 4 - The aligners are then sent for polishing where the sharp edges are removed. And since we promise you a comfortable experience, the aligners are put through the deburring machine, which makes them super-comfortable.
Step 5 - Lastly, they are sterilized as per best quality standards to make them absolutely safe and hygienic for oral usage.
Where to next? Our final stop— Packaging. Here’s where your aligners are packed and dispatched to you, so you can start your most-awaited smile makeover journey.
And it doesn’t end there. After your aligners are shipped, our toothsi experts will keep in touch with you throughout the journey at regular intervals. Your tooth movement is monitored constantly to deliver the exact results that we have promised in the treatment plan. It’s a part of the toothsi promise that we make to provide you an experience that is safe, comfortable, and with personalized care until the end of your smile makeover journey.
We not only strive to give you the best smile makeover backed by superior quality, safety, and affordability but also maintain transparency in case you want to learn all about your aligners. Our idea is to not be alone but together on this journey with you right from the moment you visit our website until you are confident to flaunt your celeb-like smile. Speaking of celeb-like smiles, here are some of our lovely toothsi tribe, who chose us for their smile makeover journey and have not stopped smiling since then (we don’t blame them!):
