You have questions, we have answers.

What are clear aligners, and how do they work?

Clear aligners are orthodontic devices made from transparent, plastic material designed to straighten teeth gradually. They work by exerting gentle pressure on your teeth, moving them into their desired position over time. Each set of aligners is slightly different, guiding your teeth into alignment according to a personalized treatment plan developed by our dental professionals.

What sets Smile Provide apart from other clear aligner companies?

Plus, our pricing is transparent, with no hidden costs.

Are clear aligners better than braces?
