Clear Aligners in Gillette, WY

Here at Mountain West Dental, we strive to provide you with the best dental care in Gillette, WY, and the
surrounding area.

Clear Aligners are the simple, clear way to straighten your teeth without using metal braces. These
custom-made aligners are clear and removable. That means you can straighten your teeth without
anyone knowing. You can drink and eat whatever you like and floss and brush as normal.


  • Dr. Erickson and our team will take/make impressions, pictures, digital scans and x-rays of your
    mouth and teeth to send your records and a script for your plan of treatment to SureSmile.
  • SureSmile will use the records and make 3-D models of your current teeth. SureSmile will follow
    those instructions that are on your prescription and make your aligner treatment plan.
  • You and Dr. Erickson will preview the projected treatment plan designed for you and the results
    that can be accomplished in a computerized “treatment simulation” of your program.
  • Once you and Dr. Erickson have approved the planned treatment, SureSmile will start fabricating
    your set of custom clear aligners by the process of digitally molding and mapping the aligners by
  • a computer.

  • Your aligners will be sent to our office, we will call you for an appointment each month to give you
    your new trays and go over the instructions on the length of time to wear each of the aligners.


  • You will wear the aligners as your dentist has directed. It will be two or three weeks per each
    aligner for 22 hours every day. Only take them out to brush and eat.
  • The treatment length will vary per each patient and their teeth. It can take from a few months to a
    few years, as it all depends on the complexity of your case.
  • The aligners are clear and completely transparent. They are by no means magic, and you might
    notice them at close range, but only if you know to look for them.
  • SureSmile never treats a patient directly as they are the manufacturers and work from the
    prescriptions your dentist sends them.
  • Most patients will experience an improvement that is significant when they smile. It is impossible
    to be able to guarantee what your outcome will be, as every result will vary.
  • Once treatment is complete, your dentist will usually give you a retainer to wear that is as discreet
    and made by SureSmile when your series of treatment is complete
