Looking to straighten your teeth without painful metal braces? Clear Aligners is a groundbreaking alternative that straightens your teeth using strong, clear plastic molds. While metal braces have brackets that need to be attached to the teeth and wires that require tightening, Clear Aligners use a series of customized aligners that gradually slide your teeth into alignment in a less painful way. As the teeth shift, the aligner is replaced every few weeks to continue moving the teeth. Think you may want Clear Aligners in Morristown instead of traditional metal braces? Let us know!
