Each Aligner will makes slight adjustments to your teeth positioning. This is a process that is reviewed and approved by an orthodontist before you undergo treatment. As you advance along from Aligner to Aligner as prescribed, you will be seeing the results as your teeth positioning shifts toward your ideal smile!
What are Dr Clear Aligners made of?
Our aligners are made of a smooth, comfortable, BPA-free plastic that won’t irritate your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces often do.

Why don’t my aligners cover my molars?
Because we custom-make your aligners to fit your mouth, our goal is to make your aligners the appropriate size to realign your smile while being as unobtrusive as possible. Your aligners should cover at least one third of each molar.
How often should I wear my aligners?
Wear your aligners every day, as directed by your treatment plan. Take them out only for eating and drinking.
Will my teeth hurt during treatment?
Using the Impression Kit does not!
Individuals wearing clear aligners for the first time may experience some tightness initially. This is perfectly normal. It means your aligners are working; moving your teeth into a straighter position! The soreness will ease off in a few days.
Are there any visits to a dental office during treatment?
There is no need to! We monitor and review your progress remotely.
What happens if I lose an aligner?
We can arrange a replacement right away. The cost for replacements is only $50. Your replacement aligner will generally ship within 3–5 weeks of placing the order.
During that time, you will need to wear the previous aligner to ensure that your teeth do not shift back to their original position.
Otherwise, you may progress forward one stage earlier.
What happens after my clear aligner treatment is complete?
Protect your new Smile! We strongly recommend you safeguard your new smile with our custom-fit retainers.
Without retainers, teeth have a tendency to shift back to their original positions. Keep them from moving back with our custom-fit retainers at just $238.
How do I preserve my new smile after treatment?
Wear your retainers 22 hours a day (except for eating and drinking) for the first two weeks. After that, you should wear your retainers only while you sleep. We recommend replacing your retainers every six months to keep them fresh.
