Reveal a Straight, Healthy Smile with Comfortable and Discreet Clear Aligners

Many patients want to correct crooked teeth and bad bites (malocclusion) but don’t want to commit to years of treatment with metal braces. We understand! Traditional braces effectively align smiles but can make you self-conscious because of their conspicuous nature. Wilmington Smiles in Wilmington, North Carolina, has a discreet yet effective method to straighten teeth. Clear aligner therapy uses custom-designed, removable, metal-free aligners to perfect your smile conveniently, comfortably, and speedily.

What issues can clear aligners resolve?

If you have orthodontic issues, a straight smile is still possible without conventional braces. Clear aligners have undergone tremendous advancements to resolve numerous dental problems, including.

  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Open bites
  • Overlapping/crooked teeth
  • Overbites
  • Overjets

A healthier, beautiful smile is on the way, and you don’t have to have a mouthful of metal. The bracket-less aligner system resolves dental issues without anyone knowing you are undergoing orthodontic treatment except you and the dentist.

How clear aligners work

The treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. Garrett to examine your teeth, bite, and oral health. When all is set, we use a digital scanner to create a 3D rendering of your mouth in minutes. Using these images, our partner lab will create customized aligners to move your teeth.

You must wear your aligners for 20-22 hours daily, only taking them out when eating or cleaning your teeth. Each set of aligners is worn for two weeks before switching to the next in the sequence. You’ll schedule an appointment with us every six weeks or so to monitor your progress.
Clear braces perfect your smile after about 12-18 months, although milder cases only need a few months. After your treatment, we recommend wearing a retainer to keep your hard-earned results intact.
