Gone are the days of hefty metal brackets needed to straighten our teeth. Now, we have a variety of ways to get the smile of our dreams without needing metal braces. Clear aligners are custom-made, fitted mouthpieces that are placed over the teeth. Over time, these wearable aligners gradually straighten your smile to your desired position.
No one is born with a perfect smile. Crowding, weird spacing, misalignment, overbites, and underbites are a part of life–but they don’t have to be. Clear aligners can fix all of these issues minus the discomfort and appearance of old-fashioned braces. Gradually, our customized aligners will shift your teeth into the position you desire and keep them that way.
The process first involves impressions to be made of the teeth. With these molds, we create aligners that are customized, tight-fitting, and perfect for you. Each aligner will be worn for several weeks as your teeth adapt to the fit. Once enough progress is made, you will move onto the next set and repeat the process. Regular checkups are scheduled to monitor the progress as well as provide the next set of aligners. We’ll be there every step of the way to ensure the aligners are doing their job. For the best results, they’re meant to be worn at all times with exceptions including eating, brushing your teeth, and flossing.
