Clear aligners have grown in popularity over the years, largely thanks to all the benefits they bring.

In just the click of a button, the aligners will be added to your cart and dispatched ASAP.
What are Clear Aligners?
Our clear aligners fall under the category of clear braces. They’re a unique orthodontic treatment that’s suitable for anyone above the age of 12. Visually, they look similar to a retainer and sit around your teeth. They’re manufactured to fit close to the gum line, ensuring they’re as comfortable as possible.
The beauty of clear aligners is that they stay true to their name – they’re transparent! When placed in your mouth, people will see your natural teeth as normal. They need to get right up close to spot the aligners in place. This is one of the key advantages of clear aligners unlike braces as many people feel self-conscious about wearing visible metal braces.
How are clear aligners different from metal braces?
Both options reach the same goal, but they get there in different ways. When you compare clear aligners and metal braces, you start to notice some fundamental differences between them:
While clear aligners are easily applied, metal braces require lots of extra work. To get your custom-made trays, all you need to do is order an impressions kit from us. We send it to your address, you follow the instructions and mail the impressions back. From here, a talented team of dental experts will take your impressions and create a customized treatment plan, once approved; experienced technicians will fabricate BPA-free plastic trays for your mouth. They’re uniquely designed for you and only you! We send them out – along with a bespoke treatment plan – and you pop them in your mouth.
With metal braces, you need lots of work at an orthodontist’s office. They have to analyze your mouth and create braces using metal wires and brackets. The brackets are glued to your teeth, supporting the wires that run across them. If this sounds painful, that’s because it is! The braces are then glued into place and can’t be removed at all. With clear aligners, you can take them out whenever you need to.
Ease of Use
A set of clear aligners is much easier to deal with than metal braces. You can take them out to eat or drink, nullifying any dietary restrictions. If you have metal braces, you can look forward to a couple of years of no hard or sticky foods! It’s also much harder to clean your teeth with metal braces as so many wires and brackets are in the way. This can be incredibly frustrating – especially when you have to pay for extra dental treatment!
None of these worries exists with a set of clear aligners. Again, they can be removed when you brush your teeth, allowing you to reach every nook and cranny. So, you can feel confident that you’re looking after your oral health while also improving your smile.
Of course, clear aligners are very different in appearance to metal braces. Metal braces have lots of wires and pieces of metal that stand out when you smile. It’s impossible to not notice that someone is wearing metal braces. As a result, many kids feel self-conscious as they can be made fun of at school for wearing braces. It’s even worse for adults, given that not many of them wear braces. Can you imagine wearing metal braces to work?
This is why clear aligners are so popular – they’re impossible to see. The transparent nature lets them fix your teeth without anyone taking notice. You can smile at people on the street and they’ll have no clue that you’re secretly wearing these special trays.

How do clear aligners straighten your teeth and move them into place? Unlike metal braces, nothing needs to be glued to your teeth. All you have to do is put on some custom-made trays that sit in your mouth for around 20-22 hours a day. Slightly the trays force your teeth to move and shift into a more natural position. This happens over a few months, finally resulting in a straight smile.
Of course, you’re probably wondering how the aligners will fit if your teeth keep moving. It’s simple; you swap out your current ones for a new pair every 10 days. This ensures that you’re constantly comfortable – and that the aligners continue to work perfectly.
