Can you tell me about clear aligners?

Clear aligners are a great way to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional braces. They are made of a clear plastic material and fit over your teeth like a mouthguard. They are removable so you can eat and drink whatever you like, and you can brush and floss them like you would your regular teeth.

The aligners are worn for 22 hours a day and are changed every two weeks. Over the course of a few months, your teeth will gradually move into the desired position. Clear aligners are a great option for people who want to straighten their teeth but don’t want the appearance of traditional braces.

Not every case is suitable for clear aligners, which is why companies that sell them over the internet should ideally be avoided. If your case is too complex, your dentist will recommend you see an Orthodontist. An Orthodontist is a dentist who has done a minimum of three years of extra study in just braces and aligners alone, so they are the experts.

Clear Aligners cost between $3000-$6000 at Smile City and you will wear them from 6-18 months depending on your individual case.

If you are interested in clear aligners, talk to your dentist. They can evaluate your teeth and determine if clear aligners are the best option for you.
