Are you unhappy with the look of your smile due to crooked teeth and gaps? Don’t settle for a smile you aren’t 100% confident showing off! With clear aligner therapy, you can discreetly straighten your teeth to gain a beautiful, youthful smile.

What Is Clear Aligner Therapy?

Clear aligner therapy is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that utilizes clear, plastic aligners to discreetly straighten teeth. The aligners are transparent so they blend in closely with your teeth. Clear aligner therapy uses advanced software to create custom aligners that will gently push teeth where they need to be. Each set of aligners is worn for one to two weeks at a time before switching them out for the next set in the series.

Confidently Straighten Your Smile

We understand that metal brackets and wires can feel clunky and embarrassing. Luckily, with clear aligner therapy, you can subtly straighten your smile instead of feeling self-conscious in noticeable metal braces.

Comfort Is Key

Many patients rave about clear aligner therapy because it’s so comfortable compared to its traditional counterpart. The aligners are made from a durable, smooth plastic material that won’t irritate your cheeks or lips. Plus, there are no wires to periodically adjust. Clear aligner therapy is also great for kids in sports because the brackets won’t cut the inside of their mouth if a ball of elbow hits them.

Simple Oral Hygiene

Because the aligners are removable, brushing and flossing your teeth is as easy as before you started orthodontics. There are no bulky brackets or wires to maneuver around. You only need to keep your aligners clean and avoid losing them when they aren’t in your mouth.
