Clear choices for creating a new smile

Clear ceramic braces

Clear braces use brackets and wires to shift your smile, just like traditional braces. Your orthodontist will adjust them every 4-6 weeks until you have the smile you always wanted.

ClearArc™ Invisible Aligners

Like Invisalign, ClearArc™ aligners replace brackets and wires with discreet, removable trays that snap over your teeth. Your own, personal orthodontist will provide you with a new set of aligners every 2-3 weeks to gradually and properly reshape your smile.

How to choose?

Your Western Dental  orthodontist is trained to evaluate your alignment, bite and jaw.  At your free consultation the doctor will  discuss your lifestyle and goals and help you make the choice that will ensure the best results.

What you should know about ClearArc™ invisible aligners

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

Often referred to as “Invisalign”, which was 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 than other leading brands and are available exclusively at Western Dental by trained orthodontists.

How do ClearArc™ Orthodontic Aligners work?

Aligners are clear plastic trays that snap 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. Every 2-3 weeks your orthodontist provides you with a new set of aligner trays with a slightly different shape. Your teeth gradually move to their new position over the course of 20 to 30 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.

Am I a good candidate for ClearArc™?

ClearArc™ aligners can correct a lot of orthodontic problems, particularly less severe spacing and alignment issues. The trays are especially good for re-aligning teeth in adults who wore braces as a child but maybe didn’t wear their retainers as long as they should have. If your condition requires major shifts in teeth or jaw structure however, orthodontic aligners may not be the right treatment for you.

What will happen at my first ClearArc™ appointment?

Your orthodontist will do a complete survey of your mouth’s structure: the roof of your mouth, jaw and teeth. If she determines you’re a candidate for ClearArc™, she’ll take photographs of your teeth as well as 3D, digital x-rays. She’ll also take an impression of your teeth that a lab will use to make your clear aligners. Unlike traditional braces which can require 1-2 hours of chair time to adhere to teeth, when your custom-made trays arrive, they just pop in so follow up appointments are typically fast and easy.

What is it like to wear invisible aligners?

ClearArc™ aligners are custom-made for optimal, contoured fit, thereby reducing the need for multiple attachments. In addition, the trays are carefully trimmed with silky-smooth edges to ensure maximum comfort.

You wear the aligner trays for 18-20 hours a day and take them out when you eat and when you brush and floss your teeth. Every two weeks you get a new set of aligners with a slightly different shape. Your teeth gradually move to their new position over the course of 20 to 30 aligners.
