The aligners are made of clear thermoplastic material, providing a discreet look that is nearly invisible when worn. This makes clear aligner therapy an attractive option for those who are looking for a way to straighten their teeth without the visible appearance of traditional braces. If you are struggling with crowded teeth or gaps, clear aligner therapy may be the right choice for you.

Quick Results

Clear aligner therapy can often align your smile in the same time as traditional braces, allowing you to achieve your desired results.

The Clear Aligner Therapy Treatment Process


At your initial consultation, Dr. Jewell will review your full set of records and assess whether clear aligner therapy is a suitable option for you. The first step is to examine your oral health to detect any gaps or crowding and check that your gums are healthy enough for treatment. Additionally, you will discuss your smile goals with Dr. Jewell and together determine a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs and lifestyle.

3D Scans for Treatment Simulation

Dr. Jewell and her team will use digital imaging to get a 3D scan of your teeth. After the scan has been created, Dr. Jewell will review your 3D models for accuracy and virtually create custom tooth movement to be expressed in your clear aligner trays. She will approve your treatment and the production of your clear aligners will begin. 

Fitting & Next Steps

After we receive your clear aligners, you will return to our office, where Dr. Jewell will carefully check their fit and make any necessary adjustments. You will receive detailed instructions on how to wear and take care of your new aligners. Most patients will wear each set for approximately 1 week, and at least 20-22 hours per day. About every 8-12 weeks, you will return to our office to pick up your next few sets of aligners. During those visits, Dr. Jewell will check to ensure that your smile is progressing as planned.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners use custom-made aligners to gradually shift your teeth closer to their ideal placement. Each aligner tray is worn for about 1 week and gently shifts your teeth. Treatment time can vary from several months up to two years, depending on the severity of the misalignment.

Are clear aligners safe?

Absolutely! Clear aligners are made of BPA-free, medical-grade clear plastic for your comfort and continued health.

Are clear aligners faster than traditional braces?

Clear aligner therapy can provide quicker results than traditional braces, depending on the case type. The aligners gently shift all teeth faster than traditional braces, which push or pull on each tooth individually. However, every case is different, so treatment time can vary depending on your unique needs. It’s important to follow your orthodontist’s instructions for wearing your custom-made clear aligners to achieve the results you’re looking for in the least time possible.

What is the difference between clear alignment therapy and traditional braces?

Clear aligners use barely noticeable plastic trays called aligners and pressure points attached to the teeth, called attachments, to gently and discreetly shift your teeth. Traditional braces rely on metal or ceramic brackets that are secured to each tooth and connected by metal wires. Clear aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces because there are no sharp points to cause discomfort, and they are easily removable for meals, photos, and other functions. However, clear aligners must be worn as prescribed in order to see the desired results.

How much do clear aligners cost?

The cost of clear aligners can vary from patient to patient depending on a variety of factors. To get an estimate of the cost of your clear aligner therapy, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jewell.
