Through Bioline™ clear aligners, Dr. Andrew Lunn and his Chattanooga, TN team can give you a smile you'll be proud to show off.
A Covert Way to Get Your Dream Smile
Clear Aligners vs. Braces
- Nearly transparent
- Easy to brush and floss
- No brackets or wires
- Very noticeable
- Only removable by a dentist or orthodontist
- Difficult to complete your daily dental care routine
- Brackets and wires that sometimes need immediate repair
A study published by The Angle Orthodontist found that clear aligners, on average, have a shorter treatment time than traditional metal braces.
What Is Bioliner?
Similar to Invisalign® and other transparent aligner treatments, Bioliner straightens your teeth through the use of clear, thin plastic trays. It is an affordable orthodontic treatment used to correct minor to moderate tooth and jaw misalignment or spacing. Developed by Five Star Orthodontic Lab and Supply, Bioliner can adjust a patient's bite in half the amount of time as other orthodontic procedures. This makes it a preferred option for many patients.
Bioliner vs. Invisalign What's the Difference?
- Economical: These aligners are more cost-effective than Invisalign.
- Nearly invisible: Although these aligner trays are clear, they are made with a denser, less opaque plastic than the competitor's aligners.
- Less budget-friendly: Invisalign is a less affordable option than Bioliner and traditional braces.
- Invisible: Most people will not be able to tell when you are wearing these aligners.
Are Clear Aligners Right For Me?
While clear aligners are a great treatment option in orthodontics, they may not be right for everyone. It is important to speak with your dentist to see if your teeth can benefit from the aligners. Patients with minor overcrowding or gaps or those who want to prevent their teeth from shifting are generally great candidates for clear aligners. Only your dentist can give you the best advice on which treatment is right for you.

Problem Solved You've Got Your Aligners — Now, How Do You Care For Them?
Always rinse with water after you remove your aligners: Our mouths don't just contain the food we eat, but they are also home to bacteria. Rinsing your aligners each time you remove them helps to get rid of the unwanted bacteria so it doesn't sit directly in your aligners or on your teeth when you reinsert them.
Do not use toothpaste directly on your aligners: Not only can toothpaste be harsh on the plastic, but your toothbrush can scrape your aligners, making them less comfortable to wear. Mouthwash or denture toothpaste is a great way to keep them clean.
Only use warm water when cleaning or rinsing your aligners: Since they are made of plastic that expands and contracts in extreme temperatures, it is best to only use room temperature water during cleaning and rinsing.
