The wires and brackets are effective for moving your teeth, but they create a juvenile appearance. You are not out of options.

What are ACE Aligners?

What is the Treatment Process Like?
ACE aligners are effective for resolving a variety of bite and alignment concerns; however, you need an initial consultation to ensure they are the right choice for you. We perform an extensive examination to assess your oral health and alignment issues. Besides a visual examination, we take x-rays, pictures, and a digital impression. Based on the information, we create a customized treatment plan.
We use a 3D model to map the movement of your teeth. The information is fabricated to a series of aligners, which are worn over your teeth for at least 22 hours per day. You wear each aligner in the series for 1 to 2 weeks depending on your individual treatment plan. You must come into our office every few weeks, so we can monitor the movement of your teeth. In about 1 year, you will finish the series of aligners. You will briefly need a retainer to prevent your teeth from moving back into their previous positions.
How Much Do Clear Aligners Cost?
There is no set amount you can expect to pay because the cost is determined by your individual treatment plan, such as the number of aligners you need. We help you maximize the value of your dental insurance and we accept a variety of payment options to keep your new smile affordable.
