It is now easier then ever to have straight healthy teeth!


Clear aligners are a popular alternative to traditional braces for people who want a straighter smile. In this ultimate guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about clear aligners, including what they are, how they work, and the benefits they offer. 

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are a series of clear, plastic trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Each tray is designed to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position, using gentle, constant pressure. As you progress through the series of trays, your teeth will gradually move into their final, straightened position. 

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners work by using a series of trays that are custom-made to fit your teeth. Each tray is worn for a specified amount of time, typically around two weeks, before being replaced with the next tray in the series. Each tray is slightly different, using gentle pressure to move your teeth into the desired position.

Clear aligners are designed to be worn for 20-22 hours per day, only being removed for eating and brushing your teeth. This ensures that the treatment is as effective as possible, while still allowing you to maintain your normal daily routine.

Benefits of Clear Aligners

Clear aligners offer a range of benefits, including:

  • Aesthetics: Clear aligners are virtually invisible, making them a more discreet option than traditional braces.
  • Comfort: Clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic, eliminating the irritation and discomfort often associated with traditional braces.
  • Convenience: Clear aligners are removable, allowing you to eat and brush your teeth normally.
  • Predictable results: Clear aligners are designed using 3D imaging technology, allowing for precise, predictable results.
  • Improved oral health: Clear aligners can help improve your oral health by making it easier to brush and floss your teeth.
Am I a Candidate for Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are a popular option for people with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, such as crooked or spaced teeth. However, clear aligners may not be suitable for more complex cases, such as severe bite issues or significant tooth misalignment.  Dr. Brandon can evaluate your situation and determine if clear aligners are right for you.

Dr. Brandon and Linda, the other guy I don't remember his name are all very friendly. I went in with a problem and was given my options for solutions and the potential draw backs of each. They answered my questions. I found my new dentist. They were willing to see me in very short notice which I greatly appreciate.

Thanks to the wonderful team at Shore Lake Dental that are working very hard to give me my smile back. I highly recommend Brandon Bohrer, DMD - and associates - if you have a fear of the dentist or worried about the condition of your teeth - you will be at ease shortly after you walk in the door.

I am so grateful for Dr. Brandon and his team. They are very special people and so talented. He cares about quality over quantity and does everything he can to explain what’s going on and make you feel comfortable. I’ve been to dozens of dentists, because I have very bad teeth and I’ve never went back to those places. But from day one I just knew that Dr. Brandon was the right fit for me and my needs. He is the future of dentistry and is breaking barriers with new technology! The team he built and the atmosphere are not like any place I’ve seen so far! I highly recommend Shore Lake Dental! I don’t usually give reviews but he definitely deserves 100 stars!!!

I transferred over to Shore Lake dental after they took over my previous dentist's practice. I was impressed from the start with Dr. Bohrer. His knowledge, expertise and professionalism is great. Then we pursued Aligners for my daughter and Trent is highly skilled in this area. After many years of putting off getting new crowns on my front teeth, I finally decided to go for it under the excellent care of Dr. Bohrer and Trent. The technology they use is phenomenal and they fitted me very well with temporary crowns. And now I have my permanent ones and couldn't be happier the my new smile. Also, the warm welcome and help with insurance/billing from the front desk is beyond 5 stars! I am very pleased and feel so confident that my family and I are truly receiving topnotch dental care.
