Straight Smilin’ Aligners
It’s time to set your smile straight.
Do you have crooked or crowded teeth but don’t want the hassle of uncomfortable metal brackets or wires? We offer Straight Smilin’ Aligners as a clear orthodontic alternative to metal braces for adults and teens. These custom aligners, which are smooth and comfortable, are worn over your teeth and gently move them over time to straighten your smile.
If you choose to receive clear aligners to straighten your smile, we will need to:
- Take X-rays.
- Take photographs.
- Take impressions of your teeth.
Our dentists will then use these images and impressions to map out a detailed treatment plan that is unique to your needs. The exact movements of your teeth and an estimated length of treatment will be projected, so you know how long it will take. Treatment time is about a year for adults.
Be sure to wear your aligners throughout the day and only remove them to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. Every two weeks, our dentist will have you start wearing a new set of aligners, which will advance you to the next step of your treatment.
