A Great Smile is more affordable than you think
Teens and adults who want a beautiful smile without the metal brackets and archwires of conventional braces need to check our clear aligners. This system of clear, plastic aligners gradually shifts teeth into their proper position throughout the treatment course.
Clear Aligners treatment has a number of benefits:
- Virtually unnoticeable when worn
- Smooth, comfortable plastic doesn’t create sore spots in your mouth
- Dental hygiene requires no special tools because the aligners are removable
- Eat all the foods you like
- Remove your aligners for key moments, such as pictures, speaking engagements and musical performances
Treatment begins with a thorough evaluation to determine whether you are a candidate for this orthodontic approach. We take a 3D scan of your teeth and show you how your teeth will move to create ideal alignment and a proper relationship between the upper and lower jaws.
Your appointments are scheduled about every six weeks and you are given a series of aligners at each appointment. Each set of aligners is worn for about two weeks at a time before moving to the next set in the series.
We continue to monitor your treatment along the way and can make minor adjustments as needed.
Please call our office today to schedule an appointment to learn if clear aligners are right for you.
