Are you still having second thoughts about getting clear aligners? If you think you’re too old to get your teeth straightened out, fear not. There’s no age limit on getting your charming smile. 

According to the American Association of Orthodontics, at least 36% of Americans are unhappy with their smile and believe that having a better smile will improve their social standing considerably. Even on a business level, Americans feel that people with imperfect teeth are more likely to be unsuccessful. 

At Christensen Dental in Henderson, Nevada, we can correct your bite issues or misaligned teeth and help you achieve the smile you deserve and desire with a discreet and hassle-free solution - clear aligners.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

At Christensen Dental, our teams of dental experts use Prime Scan, an advanced technology, to create customized SureSmile® clear aligners. We design aligners that can comfortably fit your mouth and move the teeth as required to reach your ideal smile. 

Unlike traditional orthodontic treatment methods, clear aligners are less obvious while aligning your jaws and shifting your teeth to obtain a healthy smile. 

SureSmile® aligners are personalized based on your teeth’s dental scans. They’re replicas of your teeth that apply pressure and shift the teeth into their desired positions. As part of your treatment, your aligners are exchanged with new ones every two weeks until you achieve the ideal alignment.

What Does the Clear Aligner Treatment Involve?

The steps involved in getting your SureSmile® aligners at Christensen Dental are:


The first step is an orthodontic consultation with our experts to determine whether SureSmile® aligners are the ideal solution for you. 

Prime Scan

Next, our dentists will digitally scan your teeth using Prime Scan technology. Prime Scan can produce several images of your teeth in a matter of seconds and make data processing prompt and precise. 

Our dentists then use the SureSmile software to determine how the aligners should move the teeth and design a customized treatment plan for you. 

Treatment Planning

Using the data from the digital scans, digital lab experts will determine the optimal movement needed to achieve your ideal smile. With the right amount of pressure applied to the right tooth at the right time, your treatment results will be better and faster. 


The final step is trying on your customized SureSmile® aligners and starting your journey to a fabulous smile without hindering your daily life. SureSmile® aligners are custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably, easy to wear, and hardly noticeable compared to other orthodontic solutions. 

What Are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?

Apart from aesthetic issues, misaligned teeth can also cause severe oral health issues such as tooth damage, chipping, or worn-down enamel. Crooked or misshapen teeth are more difficult to clean and this can hinder your oral hygiene routine. 

Some of the main benefits of orthodontic treatment with clear aligners include:

  • Reducing the chance of tooth cavities
  • Preventing bacterial infections and gum diseases
  • Improving your smile and confidence
  • Making it easier to maintain a proper oral hygiene routine
