Clear aligners are making waves in orthodontics with the use of invisible trays which discreetly move teeth over time. Contrast this with braces which can require cumbersome orthodontic appointments and conspicuously adhere to the teeth, clear aligners are an obvious choice for people looking to perfect their smile while maintaining their confidence.

If you’re wondering what options are available to you in the clear aligners space, you may be surprised to learn there are more options apart from Invisalign®. Simply Southern Smiles Orthodontics offers our own clear aligner system which can be a quicker and cheaper option when compared to Invisalign.  Find out more about the pros and cons of each system below!


Widely regarded as the first clear aligner set available in the market, Invisalign has revolutionized the orthodontic model. Formerly, the sole option to straighten teeth was braces and wires would quite literally pull the teeth into place, resulting in a great end result, but sometimes at the cost of convenience or confidence. 

With Invisalign, You Can Expect:

  • A brand you know and trust
  • Premium fees
  • Premium treatment

Invisalign is a great option for those of us who want to get a name brand that has been proven effective (under proper advisory) time and time again.


Simply Clear Aligners

Advances in technology have allowed orthodontists like Dr. Woods to craft bespoke aligner sets more efficiently and cost-effectively than ever before. With Invisalign, you can expect premium fees and extended treatment times as the Invisalign lab crafts your aligners (around 4 weeks on average).

The benefit to Simply Clear Aligners is that Dr. Woods makes them in-house. With his Digital Lab 3d printers, Dr. Woods may be able to make your trays in the same appointment. That’s the power of Simply Clear Aligners. 

With our Simply Clear Aligner sets you can expect:

  • Faster turnaround time
  • Cost-Effective Solutions
  • Quality treatment that can often surpass the premium care you’d expect with Invisalign.

At Simply Southern Smiles Orthodontics, we give our patients options in their treatment plans. If you’d like to start Invisalign, request a free consultation so we can book you an appointment. If you simply care about your straightened smile, perhaps our Simply Clear Aligner sets will be right for you. Regardless of which you choose, Dr. Woods will ensure your care is the absolute best available in Statesville, NC.
