Get a straighter smile without going to the doctor

Get a straighter smile at-home with our Impressions or Impressions+ programs that require significantly less of your time than traditional orthodontic treatments like braces or Invisalign.

Our at-home treatment options allow you to continue living your life while completing your goal of a straighter smile. Go on with your life, but with a new smile!

  • Eat what you want
  • Stop hiding your smile
  • No unsightly braces
  • Less trips to the orthodontist

Say YES to a brighter, straighter smile for less of your $$ and time.

Normally, clear aligner treatment, like Invisalign, requires a trip to the office every 6 to 8 weeks! With treatment lasting up to 2 years, that could mean carving out time for 18 trips to the office! With commute time there, the appointment time, and then your drive home, that could mean sacrificing A LOT of your time.

We have two different levels of at-home treatment ensuring that no matter the severity of your smile issues, we have an option that won’t interfere with your daily life.

Along with hassle-free treatment, enjoy:

  • Treatment that ships your aligned directly to your home
  • FREE Whitening
  • Virtual appointment options
  • Local doctors

Invisible Aligners, can only stay "invisible" when cleaned regularly.

Invisible aligners, like the ones that we use for Impressions, were designed to make your dental correction easier and more convenient. Cleaning your aligners, however, can be a bit of a pain, especially if you’re unsure how to do it properly. If you have purchased invisible aligners to correct your smile, you’ve made a big investment and we want to make sure you know how to keep them clean and clear!


Just like brushing and flossing your teeth, cleaning your aligners is essential to maintaining the health of your mouth. Depending on your diet, you’ll want to make sure that you are cleaning your aligners regularly to keep them clear. Without the proper cleaning regimen, your aligners may become cloudy from food and plaque residue.

Here are 4 ways to clean your invisible aligners:

  1. Clean aligners with non-whitening toothpaste.
  2. Soak aligners in hydrogen peroxide and water mixture.
  3. Soak aligners in a clear retainer cleaner solution.
  4. Use cleaning crystals to remove plaque from your invisible aligners.

(Please note: These tips suggest using warm water when cleaning your aligners, but you should never clean with hot water.)

1) Non-Whitening ToothpasteNon-whitening Toothpaste

Probably the easiest way to clean your aligners is just by using some toothpaste and a toothbrush. Use warm water, a gentle toothpaste (one formulated for children or sensitive teeth can work well), and a soft toothbrush to brush your aligners gently.

You do want to make sure that you’re using a more gentle, non-whitening toothpaste formula. Whitening toothpaste can have abrasive ingredients that will scratch your aligners, making it easier for bacteria and other germs to stick around.

2) PeroxideSoak aligners in hydrogen peroxide and water mixture.

The same properties in hydrogen peroxide that make it a good disinfectant also make it good for cleaning your aligners.

Combine equal parts hydrogen peroxide to warm water, stirring completely. Add invisible aligners to the mixture and allow them to soak for 30 minutes before removing them and rinsing them with cool water.

3) Retainer Cleaner

Soak aligners in clear retainer cleaning solution.

Retainer cleaner is a convenient option for easy cleaning that is available to order online. Retainer Brite cleaning tablets are a great option.

Add a single tablet to a cup of warm water, dissolving it into the water thoroughly. After stirring, soak invisible aligners into the solution for 15-20 minutes before rinsing.

4) Cleaning CrystalsUse cleaning crystals to remove plaque from your invisible aligners.

Cleaning crystals were specially designed by Invisalign to remove plaque, keeping aligners clean, hygienic and odor-free. Though more expensive than all the other options一a pack of 50 cleaning crystals costs $50一crystals are a reliable way to keep your aligners clean.

Dissolve a single pack into a cup of warm water, stirring until the crystals and water have formed a solution. Soak aligners into the solution for 15 minutes before rinsing them in cool water thoroughly.

Key Tips

Remember to always use warm water to make a soaking solution–anything too hot may warp the shape of your aligners and cost you big bucks to fix. If you’re unsure whether or not the temperature of your water is suitable, stick the tip of your finger in to test it.

After you’ve soaked your aligners, rinse them thoroughly with cool water to wash away any leftover solution. Getting a mouthful of watered-down hydrogen peroxide isn’t going to taste very good!

It’s best to only wear your aligners when your teeth are clean and free of food. Do what you can to brush and floss your teeth before inserting your aligners. Be prepared by packing yourself a travel cleaning kit including a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash that you can bring with you everywhere. This will keep both your teeth and your aligners healthy and free of bad odors or problematic germs.

While it’s good to give your aligners a thorough clean every week or so, on occasion you can use mouthwash to kill a bit of bacteria and give your aligners a fresh taste. Dilute mouthwash with warm water and soak aligners briefly for a quick rinse.

Make your Investment Last

Invisible aligners offer so much一they are a reliable and effective way to correct orthodontic issues without having to sacrifice your confidence or quality of life. It’s up to you as the patient to keep your aligners clean and hygienic so that they stay invisible throughout the duration of your treatment. You want to finish your smile journey with teeth that are straighter, whiter and healthier than ever before.
