In the past, having your teeth straightened usually meant wearing highly visible metal braces for up to two years. Make no mistake—traditional braces deliver good results. But many patients consider their appearance a significant drawback. Esthetics aside, they also require rigorous maintenance.
Orthodontic innovation means you no longer have to deal with the social awkwardness and extra work that go along with metal braces. Clear braces produce the same results in as few as 12 months. Come see what they—and we—can do for you. West 10th Dental Group is your home for clear aligners in Indianapolis, IN. If you are ready for a discreet way to reach your dental goals, clear aligners could offer the perfect solution for improving your smile and boosting your confidence!
As a multispecialty practice, our team is fortunate and proud to have a certified orthodontist on staff. Orthodontists are verified experts in diagnosing and treating misaligned teeth. After completing four years of dental school, they must complete at least two more years in an accredited orthodontics residency program. Highly trained, credentialed, and skilled, our orthodontist has been straightening Indiana smiles for more than four decades! Who better to correct your tooth misalignment? We can provide clear aligners as a standalone treatment or as part of a smile makeover/full mouth reconstruction completed by multiple members of our team.

A Transparent Transformation
Our clear braces are so popular due to their durable, transparent plastic aligners. Traditional braces require us to affix metal brackets and wires to your teeth for the duration of your treatment. Our custom-made clear aligners slip on over your teeth and stay there for up to 22 hours per day. You’ll take them out only when you need to eat or clean your teeth. Over the course of your treatment, you’ll switch to a new set of aligners at regular intervals. These will gradually move your teeth into their ideal position, giving you the beautifully straight smile you’ve been seeking! You can quickly begin to see results as you move to each set of new aligners throughout the straightening process.
Start On The Path To A Straight Smile
Each clear aligner is a fully customized dental appliance. We start the customization process by capturing digital impressions of your mouth with our intraoral scanner. This enables you to skip the sticky putty often required for impressions. From these digital impressions, we can determine estimated treatment time and help you envision the end result if you decide clear aligners are right for you.
We will send your impressions to a lab that will use them to create aligners custom-designed for you. You’ll receive your custom aligners during your next visit and, with our guidance, you can immediately begin treatment!
