Clear Braces in Bolingbrook, IL
Why Choose Clear Braces?Clear braces straighten your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners. Because the braces are nearly transparent, it won't be obvious that you are wearing braces. In fact, very few people will notice at all - unless you tell them. The trays fit snugly over your teeth and don't alter your speech patterns, as metal braces can in some cases.
The clear alternative to metal braces
By using a series of clear, removable aligners, clear braces straighten your teeth with fast results. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter positions step-by-step, until you have a more beautiful smile.
Unlike metal braces, these clear braces can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. Got a big night planned? If you want to go brace-free, it's no problem to remove the braces for a few hours. You'll normally wear the aligners 20 to 22 hours per day.
Less treatment time
An average course of treatment for invisible braces takes about a year. You'll see us every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments and to check progress. At regular intervals, you'll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, determined by us for your course of treatment.
Clear and comfortable
They're comfortable to wear and easy to remove when you eat, brush, and floss. The aligners are made of smooth, clear plastic so you won't have to worry about any poking or irritation in your mouth like you would with traditional metal braces.
Food choices aren't limited with clear braces
People who wear metal braces must treat their wires and brackets with care. Certain foods, such as hard or sticky foods, must be avoided to prevent damage to the braces. If treatment takes a year or two, you'll have to do without your favorite foods for quite some time. There are no food restrictions with clear braces. You'll simply take your braces out to eat and put them back in at the end of the meal.
