What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligners help to straighten and improve the look of your smile. Rather than wearing metal brackets and braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible when worn. They are ideal for both teens and adults alike, since most people won’t even know you’re wearing them. Treatment is quicker and easier, since the aligners can be removed to properly brush and floss your teeth.
Why would Clear Aligners be needed?
The reason you might need or benefit from clear aligners is because your teeth are crowded, crooked or have spaces and gaps between them. The aligners work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment with one another. This helps to improve the appearance of your smile, which will have a positive effect on your confidence. Likewise, you’ll find it easier to care for your teeth when they aren’t so crowded and crooked.

Who is a candidate for Clear Aligners?
Most of our patients are good candidates for clear aligner treatment. Because the aligners should be removed when eating and brushing, it’s best for this treatment to be left to individuals who can commit to replacing them whenever they’ve been removed. This is why we recommend clear aligner treatment to both teens and adults. With an examination, we can determine if treatment is right for you.
What happens during Clear Aligner treatment?
Clear aligner treatment begins with a consultation, exam and x-rays. We then take impressions of your teeth and use the molds to make the new aligner trays. We will instruct you on when and how to wear the aligners. They will need to be removed whenever eating or brushing and replaced immediately after. You will need to come into the office every few weeks to have new aligners made as the teeth start to shift. You can expect treatment to take a few months to roughly two years depending on your orthodontic needs.
If you are interested in clear aligner treatment, call us today so that we can easily get you in for a complete consultation appointment.
what are our patients saying?
Great service, knowledgeable doctor. I visited Optima Dental Spa and was incorrect told the basic service I needed to be provided was not covered by insurance. At Optima they took three unnecessary x-rays. Dr. v was more knowledgeable and didn’t require x-rays to cement my crown back on. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Varadi and his team are absolutely amazing! Dr. V is very thorough and compassionate and leads your experience with step by step process, so there’s no surprises. I would definitely recommend Dr. Varadi and his team.
Dr. Mitchell is a great dentist. He is thorough and I always feel confident that I am getting the best care. His staff are also very good at what they do including periodontal work and insurance management. Dr. Mitchell's practice is an excellent choice.
