THE SMILE ARCHITECTS SERVICES
Clear AlignersA discreet, state of the art way to get your perfect smile.
Clear aligners offer an effective way to straighten teeth in teens and adults in an aesthetically pleasing treatment plan. They are virtually invisible and can be removed, making them a great option for all types of lifestyles.
How it works…
The first step to getting clear aligners begins with a consultation and fitting. We look at your individual case and see how clear aligners may help your crowded, spaced or rotated teeth. Different bites, as well as the severity of your case, can change the treatment option and duration. We scan your teeth via a state-of-the-art camera, which creates renderings of your teeth. From there, we are able to estimate the number of clear aligner “trays” and treatment duration.
After your consultation and scan, you will receive a tailored number of aligners or “trays,” which correlates to your treatment time. Most treatment cases range from 6 to 12 months, but can be longer based on case specifics or severity. For the shortest time to your perfect smile, wear them 20-22 hours each day, including while asleep, removing them only to eat, brush and floss. The trays are periodically changed, with each new set of trays moving your teeth incrementally. We have brief check-ins with you along the way to ensure everything is moving perfectly—and supply you with your next set of trays.
Throughout your treatment, you will see your smile transform with every new phase of trays. Once you get to the end of the treatment, much like traditional braces, you will receive a final tray, which is to be worn at night as a retainer. Many at this final stage also enjoy taking advantage of our teeth whitening services to put that finishing touch on their new smile. At this time, you will have your perfect smile and can be proud to share it with the world. : )
