Clear Aligners Treatment & ProSmilers
Clear aligners prove that effective orthodontic treatment doesn’t have to be difficult. These clear aligners have helped millions straighten their teeth and achieve better-looking smiles, and they can help you too.

ProSmilers is an effective and discreet orthodontic treatment option, worn comfortably over your teeth to continuously adjust alignment and spacing.
Clear aligners are custom-made using models of both your current teeth and the end result you hope to achieve. With ProSmilers, you will switch to new aligners about every two weeks. Each new set of aligners shifts your teeth slightly and continues until you have achieved your final results, which usually takes about two years.
You remove the clear aligners for eating, drinking, and cleaning only. At first, they will feel very tight, but they will begin to loosen and feel more comfortable after a few days.
How does the clear aligners process work?
To begin, we will take photographs of your teeth and face, digital scans of your teeth, and x-rays. Those records are sent to our design team with detailed instructions on how we want the final result to appear. Once final, the trays are made and mailed to our office. You will wear a set of trays for about two weeks at a time for approximately 2 years, or the length of time determined by your dentist.
What are the advantages of clear aligners?
Most people are excellent candidates for clear aligners. However, clear aligners may not be a suitable choice for extensive orthodontic cases involving significant movement. Some may also choose fixed braces because there are no trays to lose.
Clear aligners are a great option for:
- Straightening your teeth without braces that others can see
- Eating foods that are “off-limits” with traditional braces
- Easily cleaning and brushing your teeth
Who can use clear aligners?
Most teens and adult patients requiring mild to moderate orthodontic corrections can use clear aligners. This includes patients with teeth that are crooked and misaligned or teeth that feature noticeable spacing problems. Clear aligners can even help patients with minor bite issues—however, not all orthodontic issues can be treated with clear aligners. More extensive problems will require additional treatment.
