Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. 

Aligners are designed to make small movements at a time, by putting gentle pressure on your teeth. That pressure is transferred through your roots to your jaws.

Your jaw bone responds to forces by essentially moving the sockets, and your teeth go along for the ride. 

Aligners are made of a strong plastic material and are fabricated to fit each individual's mouth. 

A series of aligners are needed, each aligner set moves the teeth in increments until the desired movement is achieved.

They are worn for at least 20-22 hours a day to reach the desired maximum effectiveness.

Each aligner set is worn for three weeks before changing to the next one. 

The length of treatment with aligners depends upon the severity of each case.


Since aligners are not attached to the teeth, we need little pressure points called ‘attachments’.

Attachments are tooth-colored bumps bonded to your teeth during your treatment.

Attachments help apply pressure from the aligners onto your teeth and direct them into the proper position.

Additionally, your treatment may call for elastics, which are also commonly used with traditional orthodontics.

Elastics (similar to a tiny rubber band) are sometimes needed to allow shifting of the teeth. Elastics are attached to slots in the aligners or small buttons attached to the teeth.

With Clear Aligners,  now you can fix your smile discreetly & achieve the perfect ‘Hollywood Smile’ that you have always dreamt off!


Perhaps the most common reason for getting Clear Aligners is the fact that they’re clear and transparent. Most people won’t even notice that you have them on, unlike metal braces which have wires and brackets.
