Clear Aligners in Dallas & North Dallas, TX

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners can straighten mild to moderate misalignments discreetly and without the discomfort of traditional metal braces. Clear aligner therapy, like Invisalign® clear aligners or SureSmile® aligners, is also often faster than traditional braces; and because you can remove them to eat and drink, many patients find them easier to take care of too!

The Benefits of Clear Aligner Therapy

Clear aligners are practically invisible, so no one will know you are wearing them. Many patients report that clear aligners feel more comfortable than traditional braces, too. And since they are removable, it is easier to brush and floss your teeth without maneuvering around brackets. Call us today at 214-888-6726 to learn more!

Clear Aligners VS Invisalign Treatment or SureSmile Aligners

Invisalign treatment and SureSmile aligners stand at the cutting edge of customized orthodontic solutions, leveraging advanced technology to create a personalized treatment plan for each patient. Invisalign aligners use its unique SmartTrack material for comfortable and effective tooth movement, while SureSmile offers precise adjustments for optimized outcomes, thanks to its sophisticated planning software. Both systems prioritize accuracy and efficiency, ensuring treatments are tailored to meet individual dental goals.

Discover the Perfect Clear Aligner Solution for Your Smile

General clear aligners provide a discreet and accessible option for orthodontic care, suitable for mild to moderate dental corrections. While they might not offer the bespoke level of Invisalign aligners or SureSmile treatment, they still represent a significant step forward for many patients seeking improvements in their smile. The choice between these options depends largely on the complexity of the dental issue and the level of customization required. Invisalign treatment and SureSmile aligners’ professional oversight guarantees a treatment plan that closely aligns with patient needs, highlighting their commitment to delivering personalized care. At our office, we are pleased to offer options for clear aligners in Dallas and North Dallas, Texas, helping you find the solution that is right for your smile.

The Clear Aligner Treatment Process in Dallas

Step One: Consultation

The first step of the treatment process is a consultation with our Dallas dentist. This helps us get to understand where you are at and what your expectations are for treatment. It also helps us explain the process to you in detail. Then we will look at your X-rays and evaluate your bite to find out if you are a good candidate for clear aligner therapy.

Step Two: Impressions & Digital Imaging

If, together, we decide that clear aligners are right for you, we will take some digital scans of your mouth and start designing a treatment plan just for you! Once we have some diagnostic records and scans, we can make a 3D model and show you exactly what your newly straight smile will look like. After we get your approval, we will have your clear aligners custom made based on your 3D scans.

Step Three: Fitting & Next Steps

Once your trays are ready, we will have you back for a fitting to make sure everything is comfortable. Dr. Ken and Dr. Powell will give you your first set of aligners and instructions. Each set of aligners is usually worn for 20-22 hours per day for a couple of weeks. We will periodically have you come back to ConfiDent Smile Studio to check your progress. If all is well, our dentists and team will send you home with the next few sets of aligners. You will repeat this process until your treatment is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I A Good Candidate for Clear Aligners?

A good candidate for clear aligner therapy is anyone who has a healthy mouth with no signs of periodontal disease or other outstanding oral health issues.

What Kind of Issues Can Clear Aligners Fix?

Clear aligners correct mild-to-moderate orthodontic issues, including gaps in your smile, minor jaw positioning issues and slightly crooked, uneven or crowded teeth. Advancements in clear aligner technology have made them a viable treatment option for more complex issues than ever before!

How Do I Take Care of My Clear Aligners?

Clean your aligners thoroughly twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and an approved clear aligner cleaner. Rinse them well whenever you remove them to eat or drink. When you are not wearing them, make sure to place them in their storage case. Do not eat or drink anything except water while wearing your aligners, and never expose your aligners to hot water or they might warp.

How Long Will I Need to Wear My Clear Aligners?

The length of your treatment plan depends on a few things, but the two main factors are how well you follow treatment instructions and the complexity of your case. Some mild cases are completed in about six months, while others can take 18 months or more. We will discuss all these factors with you at your consultation and give you an estimated timeline.
