What are clear aligners?
If you want to enhance your smile without getting braces, clear aligners are the orthodontic treatment for you. Clear aligners for teeth, like the well-known Invisalign® system, are an innovative alternative to conventional braces. The main difference between clear aligners vs. braces is that clear aligners use clear, customized plastic aligners to straighten teeth instead of bands and wires, making orthodontic treatment easier and more comfortable for adults and teens.
If you’re searching for clear aligners near you, look no further than Becher & Gil Orthodontics. As a trusted provider, we can help you achieve your dream smile at our office in Austin, Texas.
How do clear aligners work?
You can begin the journey to straight teeth when you schedule a free consultation with your family orthodontist in Austin. At Becher & Gil Orthodontics, we create a custom clear teeth aligner treatment plan just for you. One of our doctors will sit with you during your consultation to help you understand how the teeth straightening treatment works and what you will need to do throughout the process.
With clear aligner treatment, you can have straighter teeth within nine to 15 months — around half the time it takes traditional braces to work. Whether you’re a working adult, a college student or a parent, clear aligners can help you straighten your teeth. We also offer clear aligners for teens to help teenagers straighten their teeth discreetly.
You can easily remove the aligners whenever you eat, drink, and clean your teeth, which allows you to continue life without significant changes, like cutting out certain foods.
Each aligner fits your teeth as they shift over time until they are in the desired position. We will take impressions of your teeth, then use computer imaging technology to make your aligners.
Clear aligners use special plastic to ensure each piece has smooth, rounded edges. The construction ensures they don’t irritate your mouth or gums.
While you need to attend checkups so we can evaluate your progress, you won’t have to schedule as many appointments as braces may require.
Clear aligners are transparent, making it hard for people to see you’re wearing them.
How much do clear aligners cost?
Clear aligner treatment costs will vary depending on each patient’s specific orthodontic needs and goals. After we complete your free consultation, we can provide you with a more accurate estimate of your total treatment cost. At Becher & Gil Orthodontics, we believe your smile is a worthy investment and strive to make care accessible to everyone. We offer several flexible payment options to help you get treatment in a way that suits your budget.
