FineLine® is an innovative orthodontic aligner system crafted to deliver exceptional quality, aesthetics, comfort, and value to our patients. The system was conceived and developed by Dr. Martin Fine, who is an experienced, specialist orthodontist with decades of experience in clinical orthodontics, biology, dental materials science, and technology. FineLine represents the beginning of a new era in aligner treatment.
Dr. Martin Fine: The Expert Behind FineLine®
Dr Fine has worked with clear aligner systems for over 20 years, and during this time has developed a deep understanding of clear aligner systems.
Known for his commitment to both excellent patient care and life-long learning, Dr Fine has long held a keen interest in all aspects of orthodontic treatment.
Over the years, Dr. Fine has developed and continually advanced his on-site laboratory, consistently updating it with world-class equipment and related software systems.
FineLine is a response to the demand for highly efficient, aesthetic, comfortable, and cost-effective treatment options.
FineLine is a testament to Dr. Fine’s:
In-depth understanding of technological advancements
Unwavering commitment to patient care
Dr. Fine brings his passion and proficiency to every aspect of the FineLine process.
FineLine vs. Traditional Aligners
Most clear aligner systems work by providing clinicians with smile design software, which they use to plan and customise a series of aligners. The aligners are then produced overseas, and shipped as a complete set to your local clinic.
The FineLine system is different, because all aspects of the system are located right here, in our on-site digital orthodontic laboratory. Using his experience working with a variety of aligner systems, Dr Fine was able to select from the best available materials, technologies and techniques in order to create a system perfectly balanced to meet your needs.
With FineLine, the orthodontist—Dr. Martin Fine himself—is in control of all phases of the design and fabrication of your aligners.
As FineLine clear aligners are designed and produced locally in our on-site lab, FineLine is associated with a fast turnaround. As shipping is not required, FineLine can be ready in as little as 24 hours if required.
Without the need to involve external companies or incur shipping costs, Fine Orthodontics is able to provide FineLine at a significantly reduced price compared to other clear aligner systems.
Despite this cost advantage, there is absolutely no trade-off in terms of quality. FineLine incorporates the best available materials, cutting-edge technology, and the latest methodologies. The affordability of FineLine is the product of enhanced efficiency, with the entire team at Fine Orthodontics striving for smarter processes which allow us to pass on cost savings to our patients.
FineLine leverages the latest digital technology to provide high levels of personalisation and unmatched control.
FineLine can offer more affordable clear aligner treatment, including low-deposit options.
Furthermore, FineLine aligners can be made incrementally throughout the course of the treatment, instead of all being made upfront. This means that FineLine can be offered without the need for a large deposit. Choosing FineLine makes it easier to spread your treatment fee out across the duration of your treatment.
Clearly Designed for You
What’s important to you?
With over 20 years of clinical experience working with clear aligner systems, at Fine Orthodontics we understand that people want aligners that:
Are as clear as possible
Are easy to wear and comfortable
Move your teeth as efficiently as possible
Minimise environmental impact
Are affordable and without large upfront deposits
Deliver an aesthetic outcome using current smile technology and research
Clear aligner orthodontic treatment involves several steps, including scanning, design, manufacturing, ongoing supervision and treatment adjustments as needed.
While developing the FineLine system, Dr. Fine strongly upheld the principle that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
With the above list of patient objectives at the forefront of his mind, Dr. Fine meticulously examined and enhanced each phase of the FineLine process, ensuring the creation of an exceptional clear aligner system.
For those who are not familiar with the term WYSIWYG (pronounced wi ·zee · wig) means “what you see is what you get”.
With FineLine - ‘what you (don’t) see is what you get!’
This is for two reasons. Firstly, every aspect of the FineLine system has been carefully designed and optimised to be as clear as possible.
Secondly, despite their clear, streamlined appearance, a wealth of knowledge and technology lies behind the FineLine system:
Extensive research has guided our development of FineLine aligners to deliver outstanding clarity. We have identified the key aspects of clear aligner technology that enhance transparency, and incorporated them into our aligner system.
Made by an Orthodontist for Orthodontic Patients
Most other clear aligner companies are aligner manufacturers (suppliers).
FineLine, on the other hand, is designed and overseen by the treating orthodontist, Dr. Fine.
The FineLine system is seamlessly integrated into our specialist orthodontic practice.
This comprehensive approach empowers us with increased agility, providing exceptional clinical control.
A reality of clear aligner treatment is that in-treatment updates to your clear aligner series may be indicated, based on your response to treatment. This particularly the case if your treatment is being properly supervised by an experienced professional who is seeking to ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome.
This is certainly the case at Fine Orthodontics, where our goal is always to ensure that your smile reaches it's full potential!
With FineLine, in-treatment responsiveness is built into the system, as we use your ongoing treatment progress to inform the design of your subsequent aligners.
This differs from other systems, where aligners are usually all produced and shipped upfront, and a formal "refinement" process is usually required to accommodate any in-treatment changes. This formal process is associated with treatment delays and other limitations.
For the highest quality of care, with FineLine, we can promptly and precisely adapt aligners as your treatment progresses.
Patient Comfort and
FineLine aligners are designed to exert gentler forces initially, increasing pressure levels within each treatment stage. This approach ensures enhanced patient comfort and treatment efficiency.
Advanced Laser Cutting
FineLine is one of the first aligner systems in the world to employ advanced laser cutting. The use of this technology allows FineLine to follow the curves of your teeth and gums, applying a precise scalloped edge to your aligners.
This cutting methodology enhances both comfort and aesthetics. Your aligners will blend seamlessly into your smile, ensuring that they will be virtually undetectable to most casual observers.
FineLine is committed to minimising its environmental impact. We produce aligners on an as-needed basis, reducing waste significantly. Moreover, as they are locally made in Sydney, FineLine aligners do away with unnecessary shipping, thereby further reducing the environmental impact of clear aligner treatment.
In addition, we have also made a conscious choice to use paper packaging (rather than plastic) for each individual aligner.
Support Local Manufacturing
Unlike many alternatives that rely on overseas production, we have established our own state-of-the-art lab.
Our innovative approach allows us to design and manufacture personalised aligners at a lower price than using alternative, overseas-manufactured aligners.
