How Do Clarity Aligners Work?

Before you start treatment, you’ll get a digital custom treatment plan. This will show you exactly what you can expect during the course of your treatment — how your teeth will move and how long it will take, start to finish. Depending on your unique case, you will get a new set of clear aligners every 1-2 weeks. To get the best results, you’ll need to wear your aligners 22 hours a day. This gives you the flexibility you need to reshape your smile while still enjoying all your favorite foods and activities!
