The Specifics


What is Simpli5?

Simpli5 aligners are a clear braces orthodontic solution for the front teeth to create a more aligned and beautiful smile. Unlike other invisible aligners systems like Invisalign®, Simpli5 treatments address the appearance of the front teeth with a series of five clear plastic custom fitted trays that are worn for three to four weeks at a time for four to five months. Simpli5 is managed by an orthodontist, and is an appropriate treatment for minor imperfections of spacing and alignment.
