More information on our press release


Created by Philippe Veran, an entrepreneur specializing in biomedical technologies (dental, orthopaedics, etc.) and based in Salon de Provence, Dentosmile offers a new invisible technique to realign teeth based on a system using transparent, scalable aligners which are tailor-made using digital modeling software and 3D printing. As a result, contrary to traditional orthodontic methods, which use unsightly metal rings and wires, this method is invisible, comfortable and more easily accepted among adult patients. Similar technology has seen tremendous success, especially in the United States.

Worn for 22 hours every day and changed every three weeks, these aligners will straighten teeth gradually and gently. It takes between 6 to 18 months to achieve perfect alignment.

Dentosmile relies primarily on the MOVINGLight® technology developed by Prodways and benefits from developments of new materials offered by the Group. In addition, Gorgé Group’s teams assists Dentosmile in implementing the industrial production process.
