More About Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are transparent, custom-fit trays made of BPA-free plastic designed to gradually shift your teeth into their desired positions.

You can easily remove these clear aligners for eating, cleaning, and special events, making them a discreet, versatile treatment that blends seamlessly with your lifestyle.

Here at Shining Smiles Orthodontics, we proudly offer Spark and uLab aligners, as well as our own in-house brand, SS Aligners!

The Clear Choice for Care

Clear aligners offer you benefits you just can’t get from traditional braces, including:

Maximum Flexibility

Dr. Lee's expertise allows him to tackle various dental challenges using just the aligners or, on occasion, combining them with braces for intricate issues.

Comfort & Precision

Crafted to fit your mouth snugly, our clear aligners are the ultimate representation of quality, personalized orthodontic care.

Streamlined Treatment

Unlike braces, your aligners don’t require regular adjustments, so your smile journey is smooth and swift.

Additionally, using computerized planning and our range of aligner options, we ensure the same impeccable results as traditional treatments.

Confident Smiles

Undergo a transformative journey for your smile, all while keeping your treatment under the radar. The clear, sleek design of our aligners ensures your treatment is as low-profile as possible.

Shining Smiles Aligners: The Custom Choice

As a leader in the field of orthodontics, Dr. Lee uses his experience and expertise to craft his own custom-designed aligners for adults with mild to moderate alignment issues.

Find out more about our flexible, more affordable aligner option below.

How It Works

First, we’ll take precision digital scans of your teeth. Dr. Lee will use these scans to chart your customized treatment plan directly onto a lifelike 3D model of your mouth.

Dr. Lee will then demonstrate how your teeth will move into straighter alignment by using a cutting-edge 3D printer to create dental models of each stage of your treatment.

Finally, we’ll create a precise number of clear aligner trays that will seamlessly and efficiently guide your teeth into their correct alignment. Using advanced technology, we can print these aligners in our office, which helps save you money and allows you to begin your treatment immediately.

Clear Aligners, Tiered for Adults

Dr. Lee designed our in-house aligners specifically for adults with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.

Let’s take a look at our tiered aligner options below to see which innovative solution may be right for your orthodontic needs and smile goals.


A Few Tweaks

This tier is ideal if you have very minor crowding or spacing. If you’ve worn braces in the past and your teeth have shifted slightly, Tier 1 is the perfect remedy for you.

This treatment will typically take anywhere between 2 – 4 months.


Mild Adjustments

This tier works great if you’re dealing with mild crowding, spacing, and/or rotated teeth. You can expect Tier 2 treatment to last 4 – 6 months.


Moderate Adjustments

Tier 3 is for you if you’re dealing with more significant crowding, spacing, or rotations of the teeth. Tier 3 treatment may take anywhere from 6 – 10 months.
