About Teeth Aligners
Many people did not require or weren't able to have braces in their youth, but they now have some spacing or crowding problems that do not allow them to have a straight, gorgeous smile. Clear teeth straightening trays are tight fitting covers for the teeth created with see through acrylic, and sometimes plastic material that delicately shifts teeth into a straighter look. Using various sets of aligners over a specified course of time, clear teeth aligners are able to transform moderately crowded teeth and spacing issues for straighter, healthier teeth. Clear aligners are generally preferred by adults over traditional orthodontics since they are unnoticeable and can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC discuss teeth straightening alternatives, including clear teeth aligners during regular appointments.
"I had my first visit to see Dr. Hansen, and it was a good one. He and his staff were very professional and friendly. Looks like I picked the right dentist!"- M.P. / Google / Aug 28, 2017
"Great and friendly staff. My appointment was at 8 and was seen by Mr. Hansen at 8. Definitely recommend this place."- M.R. / Google / Jul 31, 2017
"Fabulous office. I have been having weird issues with my insurance company, resulting in me not having been to the dentist for a full year and now I've got several issues with my teeth. Dr. Hansen (he told me to call him Richard, what a cool guy) was the most friendly, helpful dentist I have EVER been to. I'm pretty young and have found that a lot of doctors can be very patronizing to younger patients, but not with Dr. Hansen or any of the employees I spoke to. They are, however, VERY informative and answered every question I had under the sun.I had to drive 50 minutes to get there (I live in NC) because they're the closest provider that takes my insurance, but even when I get new insurance and can go to someone closer I will still return to this office.Karen, Rose, and the front office guy (his name escapes me!) are the bomb, super organized AND they sorted out everything with my insurance even though there were some technical difficulties. Tiffany (she took my x-rays and did my cleaning) was incredibly knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor.I read some negative reviews from a few years ago and got nervous before I went in, but I think that they've gotten new staff or those reviews weren't legit, because I can't believe that was the same office. I wish I could give them more than five stars, I am more than satisfied with this office and excited to have found a dentist that I don't mind going to (even if the drive sucks)!"- E.M. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2017

What to Expect
Each tray of clear aligners are uniquely fitted depending on the individual's present teeth alignment. Each tray of aligners are made based on impressions, X-rays, and images. The patient will be given 3 - 4 sets of trays at their appointment and our dentists will ensure that the initial set fits as they should so that modifications can be made. Our clients need to wear their aligners as much as possible. The trays should be removed for brushing and flossing, as well as eating. Within a few weeks, a new set of trays will be provided during a quick appointment at DentalWorks - Fort Mill.
The number of weeks that an individual has to wear each phase of aligners will vary based on the unique needs of each person. The estimated timeframe needed is generally discussed by our dentists at the consultation. the aligners will be worn daily until the teeth are straight. Assessments at DentalWorks - Fort Mill will be given at each appointment so that the straightening can be assessed. Our dentists will assist patients so they have a full understanding of the ongoing progress. After the teeth are straight, a permanent retainer device will be set on the teeth for permanent results.

Our dental office at DentalWorks - Fort Mill will communicate with the patient's insurance contact to confirm their benefits and provide an accurate cost of the patient's expected fees.
