Clear Braces™ for Adults in Kansas City

Secretly Straighten Your Teeth With Clear Aligner Trays, Monitored by Pros In-Person

When your teeth don’t align correctly, the most obvious concern is how the misalignment affects your smile’s appearance – and your confidence. Crooked teeth also affect how your bite functions and can lead to excessive tooth wear, damage, jaw dysfunction, loose teeth, and more.

Unfortunately, many adults are hesitant to pursue traditional orthodontia because the thought of wearing shiny metal braces is unpleasant. With Clear Braces™ clear aligners, however, you can enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth without the inconvenience of metal wires – and without your treatment being quite so obvious.

Benefits of Wearing Clear Braces on Your Teeth

Clear braces are a series of custom-designed clear aligners carefully shaped to gently move crooked or misaligned teeth back into their proper positions. As your teeth move, you’ll receive a new aligner to wear; this process continues until treatment is complete.

Adults choose clear braces because:

  • Oral care is as easy as ever before, with no need to invest in specialized flossing tools. Simply remove your aligners and brush your teeth as normal.
  • They can eat their favorite crunchy or chewy foods, which are typically banned during traditional orthodontic treatments.
  • Clear aligners are virtually invisible, so they can keep smiling confidently.

Clear Aligner FAQs

How Much Do Clear Braces Cost?

The final cost of clear braces depends on the necessary duration and complexity of your treatment. However, generally, they cost about the same as traditional metal braces. Our cosmetic dentists will create a custom orthodontic plan for you and can provide the exact cost after your clear aligner consultation.

For How Many Hours Per Day Must I Wear My Clear Aligner Trays?

You should wear your clear braces at least 22 hours per day and remove your trays only to eat, drink anything but plain water, and brush your teeth. Wearing them less frequently could delay the progress of your treatment.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Most adult patients wear their clear braces for a minimum of six months, but treatment time varies.
