About Teeth Aligners
Quite a few individuals did not have the need or weren't able to wear braces during adolescence, but they now experience some spacing or crowding problematic areas that keep them from attaining a straight, beautiful smile. Clear teeth orthodontic aligner trays are uniquely designed covers for the teeth made from invisible acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that effectively moves teeth into alignment. Using stages of aligners over a number of months, clear teeth aligners effectively straighten moderately crowded teeth and spacing irregularities for straighter, healthier teeth. Invisible aligner trays are often preferred by adults over traditional visible straightening methods since they are unnoticeable and can be set aside for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Hickory in Hickory, NC explain teeth straightening recommendations, including clear teeth aligners during regular cleanings.

"My first time there. Everyone was so nice and cared about your comfort. I was there longer than I expected but it was because they had a hard time getting me numbed to pull a bad tooth. It was being stubborn. But they were concerned about my comfort and not being in pain. I was very pleased and satisfied with my visit. Thank you for caring."- C.V. / Google / Aug 21, 2017
