How Clear Aligners Works
Instead of noticeable metal brackets and wires, Clear Aligners uses a series of lightweight, see-through plastic aligners to move the teeth into their desired positions. Each pair of aligners is designed to resemble a specific stage of your realignment. A complete series of aligners are made at the beginning of your treatment, allowing you to move on to the next pair over the course of several months. Each pair is worn for about two weeks until you complete the series. After you’ve worn every pair, you’ll be given a retainer to keep your newly shifted teeth in place.
