Replacement Retainers

You have a couple of different options for your type of retainer. You can choose a removable plastic retainer made in our in-house lab or a Vivera removable retainer.

In-House Removable Retainer

We’ll take an impression and make your retainer within 24 hours. This will prevent any tooth movement.  Additionally, we’ll take a scan and keep it on file; in case you ever lose or damage your retainer, we can make you a new one in no time! They are virtually clear retainers, so no one will ever know you are wearing one.

Vivera Retainer

At Smile-Chic, our team can provide Vivera retainers, a retainer patented with Invisalign plastic technology, to help keep your new, fresh smile in place longer. These retainers are custom-fitted to meet your needs and pick up where Invisalign left off, keeping your teeth from slipping out of alignment. 

How Do Vivera Retainers Work?

Retainers work by preventing the teeth from gradually shifting back to their original position after treatments such as braces, Invisalign, and other clear aligner treatments. Vivera is an orthodontic retainer made out of the same clear plastic from Invisalign. The purpose of Vivera retainers is to maintain the teeth in their final position, maintaining your smile. Vivera retainers can help you protect your smile and come with numerous benefits:

  • Custom-Fitted Comfort: Vivera retainers are custom-fit to every smile and work for adults, teens, and children. Patients can experience the comfort level they’ve known during their Invisalign treatment by transitioning to Vivera retainers.
  • Noticeable Difference: Patients wearing Vivera retainers can experience a noticeable difference in their smile within months of treatment, and are available for one or both arches.
  • Durable and Strong: The Viviera retainers are more robust and more durable because it’s made from Invisalign’s patented plastic. They are reported to be 30% stronger and twice as durable as other clear retainers.
  • Longer Retainer Lifespan: These retainers come in four sets, translating to at least 10 to 20 years’ worth of retainers. This all adds up to fewer replacements, fewer reorders, and more value to your dental care. 
  • Day or Night Wear: Patients can wear these retainers 5 to 10 hours a day or overnight to maintain their results. Patients who wore metal braces can also use Vivera retainers and those who’ve worked with Invisalign. These retainers can also accommodate other case scenarios, including lingual bars/wires, missing teeth, and bite ramps. 

To see if you qualify for Vivera retainers our team can provide a three-minute scan of your teeth during your oral exam to see if you qualify for Vivera retainers.

Medical spas, also known as medspa, medi-spas, and med spa, blend the best of two worlds — a relaxing spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor’s office. A doctor oversees the medical spa and is in charge of procedures that fall under the medical realm.

Meet our team at Smile-Chic, the premier med spa! We’ll be happy to show you what makes us an excellent choice for all of your treatment needs.

Medical esthetic treatments go far beyond the mud baths, fruit peels, and therapeutic massages found at most day spas. Treatments at many medical spas and health clinic offices are more intense and offer more noticeable results.

Esthetic medicine includes all procedures in esthetics, except surgical procedures requiring an operating table and general anesthesia. Medical grade esthetic procedures include dermal fillers, permanent hair reduction, acne treatments, chemical peels, hydrafacials and many more.

To make an appointment at Smile-Chic, please use our online scheduling system or contact us directly by calling 361-356-1116.

We also recommend that you schedule future appointments in advance to ensure your preferred time is available, as nights and Saturdays are the most requested times.

All booked appointments will be confirmed by our staff via a telephone call or text reminder or email a day or two before your appointment. Please provide us with a valid email address. Scheduling an appointment is your acceptance of these policies.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to prepare for your treatment. As we are a medical spa, we require new patients to fill out a brief medical history information and consent form.

If you are scheduled for dermal fillers, laser treatments or special peels we recommend you arriving 15 minutes prior to your appointment time so that we can properly prepare you skin for the treatment.

If you have any additional questions or special need, call Smile-Chic, a Corpus Christi Med Spa at (361) 356-1116 and our scheduling consultants can assist you.

Our scheduling is designed to permit the correct amount of time to complete your service. A late arrival will deprive you of precious treatment time. In fairness to others, your treatment must end on time so the next patient’s session can begin on time.

If you are not able to be on time we will do our best to complete as much of your treatment as possible.

With some treatments, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.
