What are Invisible Aligners?

Invisible aligners, also known as clear aligners or transparent aligners, are a modern solution for teeth straightening. They are a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces, designed to correct various orthodontic issues while maintaining a natural appearance.

Invisible aligners offer the benefit of being virtually undetectable, allowing you to improve your smile without the typical visibility of traditional braces. Plus, they are removable, providing greater flexibility in terms of eating and oral hygiene.

How do Invisible Aligners work?

Once you’ve decided to transform your smile with invisible aligners, our specially trained dentist will take a digital scan of your teeth. Using this scan, a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners will be created to gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positions.

Designed to be worn for about two weeks each before moving on to the next set, these aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position. It’s a seamless process that results in a beautifully straightened smile.

What are Invisible Aligners made of?

Invisible aligners are made from clear, flexible plastic that is FDA-approved and contains no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. They are thin, lightweight, and designed to fit snugly over your teeth, making them comfortable for day-to-day wear.

What are the benefits of Invisible Aligners?


Invisible aligners are clear and discreet, meaning you can straighten your teeth without anyone noticing. This makes them a great option for adults and teens who want to improve their smile subtly.


Unlike traditional braces, invisible aligners can be taken off when you eat or drink and while brushing and flossing. This makes maintaining oral hygiene easier during your treatment period.


Invisible aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth precisely, reducing the likelihood of discomfort. They do not have brackets or wires, which can often cause irritation in traditional braces.

How long does a treatment with Invisible Aligners take?

The duration of treatment with invisible aligners varies depending on the complexity of your case, but it typically ranges from 6 to 18 months. Your dentist will be able to give you a more precise timeline during your consultation.
