With clear orthodontic aligners
We use ClearSmile® Aligners as our preferred cosmetic orthodontic (teeth straightening) treatment. ClearSmile Aligners are custom made transparent removable trays that are designed to be used in sequence over a period of months to straighten your teeth. Each tray applies a gentle pressure on the teeth to change their position until the desired result is achieved. They are virtually unnoticeable and very effective at teeth straightening. They are a very cost effective form of teeth straightening treatment and cost less than other similar products such as Invisalign.

ClearSmile Aligners can be used to close gaps and to correct the positioning of teeth that are crowded or crooked. You can start to see results from the very beginning of the treatment. Unlike fixed orthodontic treatments, the aligners can be removed at any time. It is a completely painless treatment because only small amounts of pressure are used at each stage to gently and incrementally realign the teeth. The custom made ClearSmile Aligners are made using the latest in 3D printing technology and fit precisely and very comfortably. They are made of very lightweight transparent materials. They are removable so you can eat and enjoy your food. You can also remove them to brush and floss your teeth, but they have to be worn for at least 22 hours a day.
