Clear aligners

Would you like to straighten your teeth discreetly without letting anyone know you are wearing an orthodontic appliance?

That is exactly what treatment in clear aligners can do for you.

Here at The Mount Dental Practice, we work with Trinity House Orthodontics to offer several clear aligner options for you to choose from.

Problems clear aligners can address

Crooked teeth

Gap teeth

Overlapping teeth

Twisted teeth

How do clear aligners work?

Clear aligners look similar to gum shields. They are custom-fit to your teeth and they gently press on them to move them into better alignment. After your teeth have shifted enough to fit the alignment of your current set of aligners, it will be time to move to the next set. It typically takes about two weeks for your teeth to move before you can switch to the next set of aligners.

The length and cost of your treatment depend on how many sets of clear aligners it takes to correct your bite. The number of aligners varies from person to person, but when we evaluate your teeth and create a treatment plan, we will provide you with an estimate.

We recommend you wear your aligners for a minimum of 20 hours each day so that they can have the best effect. This means that you will wear them both day and night and only take them out to eat and to clean your teeth.

    Benefits of clear aligner treatment


    No one ever has to know that you are straightening your teeth.


    Because your aligners are removable, it is easy to clean them and to clean your teeth.

    Save time

    At The Mount, we offer remote treatment monitoring for clear aligner treatment. We can check your teeth via a smartphone app and we can spare you a trip to our practice.

    Eat the foods you love

    Taking out your aligners for each meal allows you to eat anything you want without worrying that you will damage your orthodontic appliance.


    Clear aligners are made of a smooth and flexible plastic material with no sharp metal bits.

    Working with Trinity House Orthodontics, we offer multiple clear aligner solutions at our speciality dental practice:

    • Invisalign®
    • SureSmile®
    • Clear aligners that we design in our on-site dental lab

    Please see our Invisalign® page for more information on this popular brand of clear aligners.

    Are you interested in clear aligner treatment? Our doctors will evaluate your bite and recommend the clear aligner system that he believes will help you get the results you want. We will use the latest orthodontic technology to plan your treatment. Our technology includes an intraoral scanner to take digital impressions of your teeth, and software for remotely monitoring your treatment.

    After we have developed and discussed your treatment plan, we will either design your clear aligners here in our on-site lab, or send your treatment plan to the Invisalign® or SureSmile® company for them to create your aligners. Once your aligners are ready, we will give them to you and show you how to wear them and care for them.

    Questions about your treatment journey

    • Do clear aligners work for kids?

      Clear aligners can work for kids just as well as adults. If you are wondering whether aligners are right for your child, schedule a consultation with an orthodontic dentist for advice.

    • How do I keep my clear aligner clean?

      Rinse off your clear aligners every time you take them out of your mouth to clean off dental plaque and debris. Give your aligners a thorough cleaning at least once per day with one of the following methods:

      • Washing with a mild dish cleaning soap or hand soap
      • Using an ultrasonic dental appliance cleaner
      • Soaking in a dental appliance cleaning solution
      • Soaking in a mixture of one part vinegar to three parts warm water

      Do not use any abrasive substances (like baking soda or toothpaste) to clean your aligners. If you need to scrub your aligners to remove debris, use a soft toothbrush.

    • What are clear aligners made from?

      Clear aligners are made from a thermoplastic resin material. This means that they are shaped under heat and have both flexible and firm properties. The material we use to make your clear aligners here at The Mount is safe for use as an orthodontic appliance.

    • What can I eat with clear aligners?

      One of the benefits of clear aligners is that they do not restrict your diet. You can eat anything you want, as long as you have removed your aligners. You cannot eat or drink anything other than plain water while wearing your clear aligners, however. Pigments in food can discolour your aligners, and food debris that gets trapped beneath your aligners can promote tooth decay.

    • Can I get clear aligners if I’ve worn braces in the past?

      Yes, you can wear clear aligners if you used to wear braces and your teeth have relapsed since you finished orthodontic treatment. Clear aligners are a popular treatment choice for many adults who wore braces when they were younger and now want to correct teeth that have drifted out of place.

    Both my children have had braces from here, the results have been amazing and the service fantastic, Thankyou.
