Central Texas Dental Care uses Invisalign® aligners to subtly straighten your teeth over time — but it's not our only option.
Our Hewitt, TX, team also offers SureSmile® aligners, allowing you to decide which aligners best suit your goals and budget.
We serve the Waco, TX, area — and we're happy to help you find a custom orthodontic solution. Learn more about Invisalign and SureSmile.
What Do Clear Aligners Look Like Against Real Teeth?
The Advantages of Clear Aligners
Unlike braces, which have noticeable brackets and wires, aligners blend in easily with your natural teeth. This makes them great for teenagers wanting to fit in, as well as adults who want to look professional while straightening their teeth.
They Provide Options
The team at our Waco-area dental office proudly offers two different options for you to choose from: SureSmile and Invisalign. We'll guide you through the pros and cons of both during your initial consultation.
With aligners, you're typically supposed to wear your trays for around 22 hours per day. You can remove them to eat, as well as to clean them, giving you a break from time to time — a big difference from braces.
They Improve Your Diet
Clear aligners also give you the flexibility to eat what you want, unlike braces. Patients are welcome to enjoy steak, apples, and other delicious foods for a more diverse diet.
"Central Texas Dental Care is my office of choice." How We Keep Waco Patients at Ease
Tess is amazing and helped educate me in many ways. I learned more today about my dental health than I have my whole life, just in conversation with her. Highly recommend this office, all around friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere. Dr. Cooney was great!View on Google
Central Texas Dental Care is my dental office of choice. I've seen the same hygienist for years and appreciate the care that she provides. The dentist and staff are amazing as well. I moved back in 2020, but continue to come back for my dental wellness.View on Google
What Are My Aligner Options?
Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, you don't need braces to straighten your teeth. We feature two different clear aligner options at our Waco office.
We stand out from other Waco orthodontists and dental professionals because our dentist is a Bronze-level provider of Invisalign — a commonly requested clear aligner system.
Additionally, our team offers Invisalign attachments, which can aid in tooth movement during treatment.
We also offer SureSmile, another type of clear aligner treatment that works just as effectively as Invisalign.
SureSmile comes from Dentsply Sirona, the same company behind the revolutionary CEREC machine, which creates same-day dental crowns and bridges.
What Are the Advantages of SureSmile? Find Out During a Consultation
Lab Team Assistance
One of the most unique benefits of SureSmile aligners is the fact that the brand has its own Digital Lab. It's staffed by a team who will take a second look at your proposed aligner models and ensure that they're up to standard.
The makers of SureSmile are detail-oriented. In addition to approving designs, they also employ a high-tech laser to craft even more accurate custom-made clear aligners.
After you complete your SureSmile aligner treatment, you can trust the same brand to make your retainers. They're known for their strong material, and they're just as easy to wear as your aligners.
Exploring Your Clear Aligner Candidacy
You don't need braces to straighten your teeth. Our dentists offer aligner-based orthodontic treatment for both teenaged and adult patients, making it easy to have a beautiful smile — no matter how old you are.
We use clear aligners like Invisalign and SureSmile to refine orthodontic concerns like crooked teeth and minor bite misalignment. If you have more extensive bite issues, it's possible that you will not be eligible for clear aligners. Braces are still the trusted solution for more serious concerns. The only way for you to know for sure is to visit our Hewitt, TX, office, located near Waco.
