311 Dental offers clear aligner therapy Bolingbrook Residents Rely on for a Great Smile

Do you want a beautifully straight smile without the hassle and embarrassment of brackets and wires? clear aligners might be right for you!

Advantages to Invisalign Treatment

Nearly invisible

clear aligner therapy uses a series of clear plastic trays instead of metal brackets and wires, so almost nobody will know that you are straightening your teeth.

Freedom to eat and drink anything you’d like

Do you want to avoid the food restrictions that go along with traditional braces? clear aligner therapy may be right for you! Simply remove the aligners, enjoy your favorite foods and drinks, and replace the tray when you are done.

No worries about limiting your activities

If you wear traditional braces, you may have to avoid some of your favorite sports and activities – the metal wires and brackets can cause soft tissue damage if you are hit in the face with a ball, for example, or collide with another player. If you wear clear aligner therapy, though, you can take out the aligner before the big game.


clear aligners are made of BPA-free smooth plastic, so they never scrape against the inside of your cheeks like traditional braces. Our dentist custom designs your aligners to fit precisely over your teeth, making clear aligners your most comfortable option.

Easy to care for

Aligners are very easy to care for – just remove and rinse the tray, brush and floss your teeth as normal, and put the aligners back in. No special brushing or flossers needed!

Almost anyone can benefit from clear aligner therapy

clear aligner therapy is great for straightening mild to moderate bite issues.

Oral health during treatment and for a lifetime

Brushing and flossing around the brackets and wires of traditional braces can be challenging – and it can leave food and bacteria in nooks and crannies, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. Since you can remove them to brush and floss, clear aligners helps you keep your gums and teeth cleaner throughout your treatment. What’s more, straight teeth are easier to clean and less vulnerable to chipping, decay, gum disease, and tooth loss.

Confidence and beauty

A beautiful smile increases confidence, self-esteem, and your overall appearance. Because they are nearly invisible, you can confidently flash your smile while wearing Invisalign.

5 Steps to Beautifully Straight Smile with clear aligner therapy from 311 Dental

1. Come to 311 Dental for a complimentary consultation

During your free consultation, our dental team will assess your oral health and help you determine if clear aligners is the best approach to getting the straight smile you have always dreamed of.

2. Create your personalized treatment plan

Our dental team will create a personalized treatment plan just for you. We’ll start by taking detailed images and impressions of your teeth, and use the data to create aligners pathway that maps how your teeth will move to create your perfect smile. Your plan will detail the length of treatment and the expected results – while your plan may vary, treatment with Invisalign for adults lasts about a year, while clear aligners for teens takes about 18 months.

3. Your first aligners

When your new aligners are ready, our dental team will walk you through the process of wearing and caring for your aligners. You can expect to wear them for 20 to 22 hours each day, removing them to eat, drink, and engage in sports or activities.

4. Replace them about every two weeks

clear aligner trays gently move your teeth in small increments – about 1/10mm per tray – towards their optimal position for a great smile. Each aligner builds upon the progress of the previous aligner, and your teeth will move closer to their final destination with each aligner. The 311 Dental team will see you at regular intervals throughout treatment to ensure your teeth are moving in the correct direction and according to schedule.

5. Retain your great smile

You may need to wear a retainer to maintain your beautifully straight smile.
