When it comes to braces, these are the clear choice

Clear ceramic braces

Clear braces are just traditional braces gone incognito: they still use brackets and wire to realign your teeth, and they’re just as reliable. Your orthodontist will adjust them every 4-6 weeks until you’ve achieved the smile of your dreams.

ClearArc® Invisible Aligners

Like Invisalign, ClearArc® aligners replace brackets and wires with a clear tray that snaps over your teeth. You’ll wear a series of trays every 2-3 weeks that gradually reshape your smile.

What you should know about ClearArc® invisible aligners & clear braces

What are invisible aligners (i.e. ClearArc® , Invisalign, etc.) ?

Often referred to as “Invisalign”, the first aligner brand on the market, orthodontic aligners are a removable, virtually invisible solution to straighter teeth. Treatment entails a series of clear, custom-made trays that gradually move your teeth into alignment. ClearArc® aligners are priced 40% less expensive than leading brands on the market and available exclusively by trained orthodontists at Western Dental.

How do ClearArc® Orthodontic Aligners work?

Aligners are clear plastic trays that snaps over your teeth. You wear them for 18-20 hours a day, removing them when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth. Your personal Orthodontist will provide you with a series of clear trays that you’ll change out every few weeks.  Your teeth will gradually move to their new position over the course of approximately 20 sets of aligners.

What makes ClearArc® aligners different from other aligners on the market?

Unlike some other aligner brands, ClearArc® aligners straighten all your teeth (not just the front few) and treatment is always overseen by your own qualified, trained orthodontist. In addition, the proprietary ClearWear™ material is crystal clear, stain-resistant and custom-made for contoured fit, reducing the need for multiple attachments and making them extremely comfortable and virtually invisible.

How do clear braces work?

Clear braces are good for people who are looking for an alternate to metal brackets to straighten their teeth. They use the same technique to shift your smile as standard metal braces, except the brackets are less noticeable. Your orthodontist will adjust them every 4-6 weeks until you have the smile you always wanted.
