Clear Aligners are an effective way to discreetly straighten your smile!
Are you interesting in having straighter teeth, but aren’t thrilled about having a mouth full of metal? You may be the perfect candidate for Clear Aligners! With clear aligners, your teeth are moved into position with a series of clear, plastic trays. They can be removed for meals and important meetings (as long as you wear them for 20-22 hours per day), and are practically undetectable!
In the past few years, clear aligner technology has made some real improvements, including a new, stronger material for the trays and more advanced techniques for complex movements. Basically, this means that patients who may have not been good candidates for clear aligners in the past can now be treated!
Metal vs Ceramic vs Clear Plastic
Nowadays, you have three basic choices for orthodontic treatment: traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear plastic aligners. Of these three, clear aligners are the only one that is truly undetectable, even when having a face-to-face conversation. After wearing aligners for a few weeks, many of our patients report that their friends and family didn’t even notice they were undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Accurate and Predictable Results
One benefit of clear aligners that surprises our patients is the ClinCheck software, a computer-generated preview of the movement of their teeth over the course of treatment. This wonderful technology allows you to see in advance exactly what your smile will look like after your clear aligner treatment is over.
Affordable Option for All Patients
In the past, clear aligners were more expensive than traditional braces. But due to recent technological advancements and increasing patient preference for clear aligners over traditional braces, the difference in price is very small. So don’t let concerns over cost keep from you getting the smile you want!
