Who says beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, when everyone can be beautiful with few fixes. If you stopped laughing or smiling with your lips wide open, it is probably due to crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment (Braces) will help you in bringing back that confidence to smile and laugh again. This treatment straightens the teeth or moves them into a better position. This improves your aesthetic appeal and also aids in the way the teeth bite together.

Aligner is an orthodontic appliance system used to treat crooked and crowded teeth in adults and teens. Aligner trays that are worn at all times with the exception of during meals and when brushing or flossing. The trays are custom fitted to the teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable when, talking, laughing and eating with other people.
Patients will receive a sequence of trays, each of which is slightly different than the one before. The aligners provide a slight resistance to the teeth, forcing them to move into alignment over time.

Aligners fits well into busy adult schedules, as there is no need to attend frequent visits for wire tightening. Most patients has to wear new aligner tray every couple of weeks.
