What are dental clear aligners?

Clear aligners are a modern way to straighten the teeth without the need for braces. They work by covering the teeth and applying a small amount of pressure to gradually move them into place.

One of the key questions we get from customers is how long does it take for clear aligners to work? Treatment time is one of the main advantages of clear aligners vs traditional braces is the treatment time. The average treatment time for clear aligners is 4-6 months compared to 2+ years for traditional braces.

However, we do clarify that it is hard to provide general advice as to how long does it take for clear aligners to work as ultimately it depends on the severity of your individual case.

How Long is Clear Aligner Treatment Time?

How long it takes for clear aligners to work comes down to your specific case and its complexity. The average treatment time for clear aligners is 4-6 months. However, this is one of the great things about clear aligners – you will start to see results in as little as 60 days!

How Long Should You Wear Your Clear Aligners for Each Day?

You, the patient, can have an impact on how long and effective clear aligner treatment is by following the prescribed treatment plan. For example, it’s important to clear aligners that are worn 22 hours per day. However, you can (and we advise should) take them out to eat and brush your teeth. Aside from that, you should be prepared to commit to the 22 hour wear time per day for the period of your treatment plan.

Teeth Whitening Strips

What Are Teeth Whitening Strips? Do They Work?

Teeth-whitening strips are produced from a flexible plastic material. The strip is coated in a layer of whitening gel. The gel contains a bleaching agent (hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide). When you apply the strip to your teeth, the gel presses against the surface of the teeth and is held in place. It then penetrates the tooth and begins the lightning process. Teeth-whitening strips are usually applied daily over a 2-3-week timeline.
