Comprehensive Orthodontic Care in Irvine

Clear aligners are a modern and effective solution for straightening teeth without braces. Aligners are effective for gapped, crooked, or crowded teeth, allowing you to address almost any bite issue. At Irvine Spectrum Dental, our experienced dentist, Dr. Anthony Yu, offers clear aligner orthodontics to help our patients achieve a straighter, more beautiful smile.

No outside orthodontic referrals are necessary. Your entire clear aligner procedure is completed right here in our office.

What are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are custom-made, transparent trays that are designed to fit snugly over your teeth. They are crafted from a rigid, clear plastic material that is comfortable and easy to wear. Each pair of aligners presses a slight amount of pressure on your teeth to move them toward the desired location.

How do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners work by gently shifting your teeth into the correct position over time. You’ll change your aligners out every two weeks, with each set of trays being slightly different from the last. The trays are designed to apply constant, gentle pressure to your teeth, which helps to move them into the desired position. No orthodontic “adjustments” or “tightening” is needed, making aligners more comfortable than conventional braces.

Do I Qualify for Clear Aligner Orthodontics?

Clear aligner braces are a suitable option for most adults and teens. There are no upper age restrictions, so you can choose to invest in straighter teeth at any point throughout adulthood. During your initial consultation, Dr. Yu will examine your teeth and determine if clear aligners are right for you. It’s important that your smile be free of any active infections, such as periodontitis or tooth decay.
