Clear Aligners - Invisible Orthodontics
One of the primary concerns people have about dental braces is seeing the metal on their smile. Especially for adults, the idea of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Clear Aligners offer an almost invisible aligning system that straightens teeth fast and contains no metal.
How do Clear Aligners work?
Clear aligner orthodontic treatment consists of wearing custom-made aligning trays. Each of these clear aligners corresponds to a slight movement of the teeth. Once all the movements (i.e trays) are completed, the patient will have their brand new smile.

What does clear aligner treatment involve at Annese DMD?
The first step is consultation with the dentist. In this appointment, the dentist will take a digital scan of the patient’s teeth as well as intraoral and extra oral photos. Using this information, the dentist will create a digital treatment plan using dental orthodontic software. The software will allow the dentist to digitally create the perfect smile. Your new smile is made by undergoing a series of coordinated movements by wearing clear aligners. The total amount of aligners required varies with each individual case. It takes about 2 weeks from consultation to begin treatment.
