Considering straightening your teeth? Clear aligners are a great alternative to traditional braces. Boerne Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry offers complete invisible orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry all under one roof. But translucent aligners are suitable for all ages, including teens, who want a discreet alternative to conventional brackets and wires.
What do Invisible Aligners Look Like?
Clear aligners are more convenient than traditional braces and don't require any wires or brackets. You simply wear a series of invisible trays that cover all your teeth. Their discreet design is practically invisible so people won’t see them when you smile or talk, so people will be less likely to notice that you are wearing them.
How Do Orthodontic Aligners Work?
Clear aligners can be very predictable as the treatment is pre-mapped in a high-tech 3D software. Each tray is different than the previous one. When you wear your aligners, they apply light pressure to specific areas of your smile. You’ll change them out every two weeks to progress to the next, slightly different set of aligners. Your teeth will straighten a little more every two weeks.
Since your entire smile alignment process is digitally planned out in advance, we’re able to send you several sets of aligners at a time. That means fewer appointments during your overall treatment.

Clear Aligners Cost in Boerne
The cost of clear aligner treatment will depend on your individual smile and treatment plan. The most important factor is how aligned your teeth are and how long it takes to straighten them. Correcting more severe crowding and misalignments will take longer, so you'll need more aligners. Boerne Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry will be happy to provide you with an estimate of your treatment length and pricing during your consultation. Flexible payment plans are available and we work closely with your insurance carrier to maximize your coverage.
