Your Teen Will Love Clear Aligner Treatment
At Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, we want our teen patients to be excited about starting their journey towards straighter teeth, and clear aligners for teens help Dr. Sheinis do exactly that.
Benefits of Clear Aligners for Teens
Clear aligners (like Invisalign® and 3M® Clarity) meet the unique needs of teens all around Huntington and Woodbury because clear aligners don't use brackets, wires, and bands like traditional braces.
At your first free consultation, Dr. Sheinis will determine if clear aligners for teens are the best option for your unique smile.
Clear aligners for teens from Shiney Smiles Orthodontics helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen.
Straightening your teeth with clear aligners can be a great option if you’re concerned about your appearance and don’t want to look different from your friends around Huntington and Woodbury.
Clear aligners from Shiney Smiles Orthodontics are made of clear plastic and almost invisible. Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them! Instead of hiding behind a mouth full of metal braces, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day.
You probably have friends in Huntington and Woodbury with braces who had to give up chewing gum and eating certain foods like popcorn and whole apples during treatment.
You can remove your clear aligners whenever you feel like it, so you can eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want.
This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces!
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet.
At your initial consultation with Dr. Sheinis, you’ll find out if clear aligners are a good fit for your smile and your lifestyle!
Perfect for Busy Schedules
Treatment with clear aligners is ideal for parents of busy teenagers in Huntington, Woodbury and surrounding areas because there are never any emergency appointments from broken wires or brackets.
Most teen patients in clear aligners at Shiney Smiles Orthodontics will have fewer appointments than patients wearing metal braces. That’s because you get many weeks’ worth of clear aligners in advance, and each visit requires less “chair time.”
The typical teen-aged patient in clear aligners sees Dr. Sheinis once every eight weeks for a total average treatment time of about a year, give or take a few months.
Great for Active Teens in Huntington & Woodbury
Clear aligners are an ideal choice for teens in Huntington and Woodbury who play sports, play certain types of instruments, love crunchy foods, or are worried about how metal braces will look at homecoming or in the yearbook.
You should be able to participate in the activities you’re interested in during your teen years while still having the confidence to attend social events and make lasting memories.
Getting efficient orthodontic treatment for crowded teeth, uneven spacing, and bite issues shouldn’t get in the way.
With the clear, comfortable technology of clear aligners and Dr. Sheinis’s expert care, teens can keep being themselves and feel confident showing off only smiles.
Doesn't Cost More than Traditional Braces
Financing options are also available to make clear aligners more affordable for your family, and our Shiney Smiles Orthodontics team is here to answer any questions regarding financing, payment plans, and insurance claims.
Many factors determine the cost of treatment with clear aligners at our offices in Huntington and Woodbury. In most cases, the cost of clear aligners will be similar to normal braces and covered by most New York dental insurance plans.
Responsibilities of Clear Aligners
It’s important to wear your aligners for at least 22 hours each day so can get to work straightening your teeth. But, with clear aligner treatment at Shiney Smiles Orthodontics, you can remove your aligners for special occasions.
Like with traditional braces, Dr. Sheinis recommends his clear aligner patients should wear retainers after treatment to maintain their new alignment—and their confident new smiles.

Clear aligners aren't the best choice for every teen. If you’ve had bridgework or complex alignment or bite issues, Dr. Sheinis might recommend other options instead.
