Everyone wants to achieve perfect, uniform, and straight teeth. But straightening teeth traditionally involves wearing ugly metallic braces that cause considerable self-esteem issues and discomfort. No more — we offer Invisalign and Clear Correct aligners to discreetly straighten your teeth without metallic braces!
Straighten Your Smile Without Ugly Braces
Forget the metallic mouth – there’s a new way to straighten your teeth, and it’s practically invisible. Clear aligners in San Diego are the latest dental technology to take the orthodontic world by storm. Unlike traditional braces, which use brackets and wires to move teeth into place, clear aligners are made of a clear, flexible material that’s almost invisible when you wear them. You can straighten your teeth and achieve the perfect smile without worrying about ugly braces!
What are Clear Aligners?
Clear aligner therapy is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear, plastic trays to straighten teeth. Clear aligners gradually move your teeth into the desired position. Each aligner is made specifically for your teeth, and you’ll wear each for about two weeks before moving to the next. As you progress through the aligners, your teeth will slowly shift into place. Clear aligners are almost invisible, making them popular for adults and teens who want to straighten their teeth.
Clear Aligners Treat:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Overcrowded teeth
- Open bite
- Other orthodontic problems
Your Clear Aligner Options
Advanced Dentistry & Implant Center performs clear aligners in San Diego therapy using two possible brands — Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Both are clear aligner systems that use a series of custom-made, comfortable, barely visible plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into place, but our dentists recommend the appropriate clear aligner system after a thorough evaluation.
Invisalign is the world’s leading brand for clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are thicker than ClearCorrect and can straighten teeth in 10 to 12 months. Invisalign aligners are produced using the cutting-edge SmartTrack thermoplastic material, one of the most sophisticated materials for clear aligners. Invisalign aligners are also 3D printed for optimal accuracy.
ClearCorrect is the second largest manufacturer of clear aligners in the US, with a 70% patient satisfaction rate. ClearCorrect is thinner than Invisalign, so it may feel more comfortable. However, ClearCorrect also takes an average of 13.5 months to straighten teeth. ClearCorrect aligners are 3D printed and then cut manually.
