Clear BracesAn Overview
It is never too late to straighten your teeth with invisible braces.
Invisible braces are ideal treatment options for correcting cosmetic concerns affecting the alignment of your teeth. Clear aligners offer adult patients a way to discreetly address minor orthodontic concerns without the hassle or stigma of traditional metal braces.
Adult patients can benefit from correcting misalignment or closing gaps in their teeth. Clear aligners can help adult patients address orthodontic relapse by gradually shifting teeth back into alignment should they shift after previous orthodontic treatment. Patients with straighter teeth are less likely to develop tooth decay and enjoy a more beautiful and confident smile.

Dr. Gil is amazing!!! After years of not going to the dentist due to fear (because of a bad childhood experience), Dr. Gil and his staff are warm, caring, and gentle. I wouldn't trust ANYONE else!! He takes his time to make you feel comfortable, everything is explained to you…Tiffanie C.

Clear Braces What to Expect
A thorough oral health examination will help Dr. Gil determine if clear aligners will be an effective solution for addressing your minor orthodontic concerns. If invisible braces are the appropriate treatment for you, treatment will begin.
Dr. Gil uses 3D digital imaging to create molds of the teeth. Based off of the images, a series of clear aligners are created in a lab.
Patients wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks. Aligners are worn for 22 hours a day, 7 days a week. Aligners can be removed for daily oral hygiene and during meals. Each set of aligners gradually shifts teeth further into proper alignment.
