What are CoastClear Aligners®?

CoastClear Aligners® are clear dental braces, carefully designed to gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment for the perfect smile you have been dreaming of. Our dental aligners are made of thin, clear, almost invisible to see and BPA-free plastic – so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them!


How does the treatment work? How long does it take?

First things first, we need some dental impressions. You can make them yourself at home with a kit we can mail directly to your doorstep or come to any one of our offices and have them taken. Once you are approved for the treatment, it takes an average of two weeks to receive your complete set of invisible aligners all in one box. Depending on the severity of your case, you can have straight teeth and a winning smile in as little as 3 months.


How much do CoastClear Aligners® cost? Are there payment options?

CoastClear Aligners® are half the price of popular competitors such as Invisalign, only coming in at a cost of $2499 – no matter how many trays you need! You have the option to pay up front or take advantage of our easy payment plan with help from our friends at Covered Care. Together, we offer guaranteed approval with payments at $89 a month.†* While our aligners are more affordable than Invisalign, they are anything but cheap invisible braces!


Are CoastClear Aligners® right for me?

Our aligners are ideal for solving common issues such as crowding, gaps, and cross bite. If any of those teeth and smile-related woes are affecting your confidence, or you just want a fresh, new look – CoastClear Aligners® may be the exact teeth straightening solution for you!

Can I straighten my smile from home?

Of course! Your invisible aligners ship directly to you and you are free to take your smile journey from the comfort of home. Alternatively, you can have them shipped to your local Coast Dental practice; and since they all arrive in one package, you save yourself multiple trips to the dentist. Teeth straightening at home with CoastClear Aligners® couldn’t be easier!


How do I take care of my aligners?

While our dental aligners are crystal clear, they will need to be cleaned daily – just like the teeth already in your mouth. However, unlike your natural teeth, our CoastClear Aligners® can be taken out while eating or drinking and placed in the provided carrying case until they are ready to go back in your mouth.

To clean your CoastClear Aligners®, use a soft-bristle toothbrush and simply lather them up with liquid soap and lukewarm water, then rinse when they are sufficiently clear of any debris. Incorporating this into your nightly routine will greatly improve your experience with our dental aligners and your overall oral health.

What happens after I complete my treatment?

After your teeth are straightened and you have completed your smile journey, you may wonder what’s next. As with any orthodontic treatment, it is recommended to use a retainer to prevent your teeth from shifting back into their original positions. Your orthodontist will tell you how long you need to wear your retainer, but for most patients it is about a year.
