If you are interested in whitening your teeth, a clear aligner might be the right option for you. Clear aligners are braces used to straighten teeth, but are almost entirely unnoticeable. Clear aligners are completely personalized and designed to give you the ideal smile you’ve always wanted. Clear aligners are usually better for teenagers or adults than for children. Dr. Hart may recommend clear aligners for patients who have crowded teeth or minor spacing problems. However, while clear aligners can improve the aesthetics of your smile, they also benefit the long term health of your mouth.
If you decide clear aligners are right for you, our dentist will take an imprint of your mouth. A mold will then be made to fit tightly over your teeth. Every few weeks you will be given a new mold that makes slight adjustments to your teeth. Clear aligners usually take somewhere between 10 and 24 weeks, but can take as little as 10 weeks, and can also be removed for activities such as eating or dental hygiene.
