Clear aligners have come a long way since they were introduced to the orthodontic profession by Invisalign in 1999. Nowadays, they have developed to be a very effective orthodontic treatment capable of treating a wide range of orthodontic issues. Though Invisalign is still a big player in the aligner market, there are a number of other companies that have excellent aligner systems.

Our office primarily uses Spark and ULab clear aligners to achieve beautiful orthodontic results for our patients. Dr. Herring and the Herring Orthodontics family would love to help change your life or your loved one’s life for the better.

Learn How Clear Aligners Straighten Teeth

Starting clear aligners treatment means you’re embarking on a rewarding journey to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of! Treatment with clear aligners involves wearing a series of custom-made transparent, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth without the need for metal brackets or wires.

Clear aligners are thin and nearly invisible, fitting snugly over your teeth like sleek mouthguards, and are comfortable enough to wear for the recommended 22 hours per day. With invisible aligners, not only do you get an effective solution for improving your smile, but you also get a treatment that comfortably integrates with your daily life. Since aligners can be removed when you eat and clean your teeth, aligner patients enjoy fewer food restrictions and oral hygiene challenges compared with patients wearing braces.

Your journey with clear aligners begins with a thorough consultation where our team utilizes the iTero Element® scanner to capture a fast and precise 3D digital scan of your teeth. This scan allows us to craft a customized treatment plan and aligners molded to your teeth. Your unique treatment plan will serve as your guide as you transition to a new aligner every one to two weeks, based on Dr. Herring’s recommendation.

With clear aligners, our patients have enjoyed witnessing the magic of their teeth gradually and predictably moving toward their ideal smile. You can have the same rewarding experience!

Spark Clear Aligners

Spark Aligners are made from a plastic-like material called TruGEN. TruGEN’s design is stain-resistant, BPA-free, and crystal clear compared to other clear aligner alternatives. This innovative material also provides efficient tooth movement, applying constant, gentle force to a wide surface area of each tooth. All orthodontists must be qualified to offer Spark Aligners to patients. Dr. Herring has been trained to provide Spark Aligner therapy and will ensure you have an exceptional treatment experience.

uLab Systems Clear Aligners

With the uLab Systems planning software, Dr. Herring creates robust clear aligner treatment plans for patients. uLab’s software streamlines the treatment process for orthodontists and patients, and designs effective and efficient clear aligners. Dr. Herring is trained to provide uLab aligners and use their amazing software, so you can be sure you’re receiving the best uLab clear aligner treatment with his guidance.

Clear Aligners for Teens

Your child’s teenage years are the perfect time to correct orthodontic issues. Teens who want a more subtle way to straighten their teeth can also enjoy the freedom and flexibility of clear aligner treatment. Clear aligners are custom-made, especially for your teen!

Because their jaw and oral structures are still forming, treatment for your teen will be faster and more effective. Clear aligners offer freedom while encouraging the creation and maintenance of routines. Not only do aligners mold captivating smiles, but they also support responsible engagement with the treatment, nurturing your teen’s path toward a confident and healthy smile!

Clear Aligners for Adults

Clear aligners are perfect for the bustling lifestyle of adults, offering comfort and discretion. Age is truly just a number when it comes to refining your smile, and with clear aligner treatment, millions of adults are rediscovering the path to dental excellence. This popular treatment presents a harmony of convenience and efficiency that has convinced adults (even those well into their 60s!) to choose it for their smile journey.
