Clear aligners are a popular choice for both the young and old because of the obvious aesthetic advantages they provide while straightening your teeth. Practically invisible to the average onlooker, clear aligners avoid any of the social awkwardness that come from noticeable metal brackets and wires.

With the use of 3D scanners and printers, customized trays are molded to the exact configuration of your teeth, and a set of trays are made with miniscule adjustments to push your teeth in the proper place. You will swap out the trays in order every two weeks, and by the time you get to the last one, you’ll be smiling with your perfectly straight teeth.

The other big advantage of clear aligners is that unlike the metal wires and brackets, they are completely removable from your mouth for eating, brushing and cleaning.
