Invisalign and ClearCorrect in Lincoln, NE, give you a straight smile without brackets and wire braces. And patients prefer these systems over traditional braces for their discretion and comfort.

Antelope Creek Family Dentistry, your trusted dental office in Lincoln, is proud to offer clear aligners—both Invisalign and ClearCorrect—to help patients achieve their smile goals.

Clear Aligners in Lincoln, NE

To determine whether you’re a suitable candidate for clear aligners, we invite you for an assessment with your dentist in Lincoln, NE. You’ll learn whether our systems will work for your orthodontic needs at this appointment. We also set aside time to answer your questions about clear braces.

Should you proceed with treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth. The Invisalign or ClearCorrect lab uses our impression results to create a series of aligners for you. You wear the first set based on a schedule provided by your dentist before changing to the next set and so on. When you exhaust your aligners, it marks the end of treatment. We then fit you with a custom retainer to guard against orthodontic relapse.

Clear Aligners vs. Traditional Metal Braces

Most patients prefer clear aligners because they have specific benefits not found in traditional braces.

  • Clear aligners are discreet. Braces are pronounced and noticeable.
  • Clear aligners are made of smooth plastic for comfort. Braces are cumbersome and bulky.
  • Clear aligners are removable for brushing, flossing, and eating. Braces are not.
  • Clear aligners mean fewer dental visits during treatment compared with braces.
