What are Clear Aligners
Clear aligners are a modern and effective orthodontic treatment that uses a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, clear aligners are virtually invisible and easily removed. They are a great option for patients that want a discreet and comfortable way to achieve a beautiful, straight smile.
