Why should I choose clear aligner therapy?

With clear aligner therapy, you can get the beautifully straight smile of your dreams without the clunky, uncomfortable metal brackets of traditional braces. Clear aligner therapy utilizes a series of custom-made dental appliances that gradually straighten your smile by applying gentle, consistent pressure to the teeth. The biggest draw of clear aligner therapy is the discreet look, as the aligners are made of clear thermoplastic material that is nearly invisible when worn. If you’re struggling with crowded teeth or gaps, clear aligner therapy may be right for you.

The Clear Aligner Therapy Treatment Process


During your initial consultation, your orthodontist will determine if clear aligner therapy is right for you. First, we’ll examine your oral health to check for gaps and crowding, and ensure your gums are healthy enough for treatment. You’ll also go over your smile goals with your doctor and decide on a treatment plan that fits your needs and lifestyle.

Digital Models

We will then create a 3D model of your bite with our digital scanner. Once those are complete, your orthodontist will treatment plan and design your aligners to fit your unique needs. Everything is sent off to our trusted lab and they will custom craft your first few sets of aligners.

Fitting & Next Steps

Once we receive your clear aligners, you’ll return to the office, where your orthodontist will check to ensure they fit just right, and make any needed adjustments. Your orthodontist will provide you detailed instructions about how to wear your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for 1 week and between 20-22 hours per day. Every 8-10 weeks or so, you’ll return to our office to pick up your next several sets of aligners and to ensure your smile is making the proper progress.

Check out these frequently asked questions, or call us to speak with our team.

How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners utilize a series of custom-crafted aligners that gradually straighten your teeth over time. Each aligner tray is worn for about one week, and will gently shift your teeth closer to their ideal placement. Depending on the severity of the misalignment, treatment can take anywhere from several months up to two years, though most patients wear their clear aligners for about a year.

Are clear aligners safe?

Yes! All aligners are made of BPA-free, medical-grade clear plastic for your comfort and continued health and well being.

Are clear aligners faster than traditional braces?

While the length of treatment can vary based on each patient’s individual needs, clear aligner therapy can often provide quicker results than traditional braces. Because the aligners push on all teeth, instead of pulling or pushing on each tooth individually like with traditional braces, they can dramatically, but gently, shift your teeth faster. However, to achieve the results you’re looking for in the least time possible, it’s important to follow your orthodontist's instructions for wearing your custom-made clear aligners.

What is the difference between clear alignment therapy and traditional braces?

While traditional braces rely on metal or ceramic brackets that are secured to each individual tooth and connected by metal wires, clear aligners gently and discreetly shift your teeth with barely noticeable plastic trays. Patients also find clear aligners to be more comfortable than traditional braces, because there are no sharp points to cause irritation or discomfort. Plus, clear aligners are easily removable so you can quickly take them out for meals, photos, and other functions, and place them back in at any time. However, clear aligners aren’t right for everyone. If you’re struggling with more complex issues like a malpositioned jaw or severely misaligned bite, braces are a more versatile and powerful type of orthodontic treatment.

How much do clear aligners cost?

The cost of clear aligners can vary from patient to patient. A variety of factors, like the length of treatment needed and the insurance you have can affect the cost of your treatment. To find out how much you’ll pay for clear aligner therapy, schedule a consultation with us.
