Clear Aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. The aligners are made of a strong plastic material and are fabricated to fit each person's mouth. If a series of aligners are made, each aligner moves the teeth a little bit more into place until the desired movement is completed.
The length of treatment with aligners depends upon the severity of each case.
Shannon Ankenbrandt, DDS offers different aligner choices to accommodate various patient needs, from more limited cases to comprehensive cases.
We are pleased to be able to offer Bioliner™ aligners with

Advantages of orthodontic treatment with clear aligners
Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who want a straighter smile but do not want to wear traditional metal braces or for patients who have had orthodontic treatment in the past and want to make minor corrections to their smile. There are several advantages to using clear aligners:
Clear aligners are clear so they are nearly invisible and therefore very esthetic
Clear aligners are removable so it is easier for you to brush and floss after meals
Clear aligners are easier to keep clean
Clear aligners are comfortable and less likely to irritate your gums and cheeks
Clear aligners can prevent tooth wear from grinding
Super clean, super friendly staff. Felt very safe going in for a checkup during covid-19.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. They were professional and friendly. Nobody likes to go to a dentist, but if you do, I can totally recommend them. I don’t have dental insurance but found them very reasonable as well.

the lady who cleaned my teeth was amazing! She was very nice and didn’t make me bleed once! They taught me how to whiten my teeth properly and changing my insurance over was a breeze. Always will recommend them!

I love the whole office! From the moment you walk in and see Pam’s smiling face you know your experience will be amazing! She goes above and beyond to get you scheduled for your appointments!

Prep for a crown and placement of a temporary went smoothly and professionally. The start time and duration went as advertised. The procedure was pain free and I have had no problems with the temporary crown. Overall excellent process.

The dental assistant was very kind and friendly. She was also very good at her craft and knowledgeable. Dr. Peter does excellent, practically painless work when needed.

Most caring dentist EVER!!!!
- Valerie Drake. 10/11/2016
I have always hated going to the dentist. I never had a dentist I liked and trusted very much, until NOW!
I had the pleasure of finding Dr. Ankenbrandt when I moved to Saint Charles (Weldon Spring) and can't say enough good things about her, her office, and every single member of the staff.
She does quality work at good prices. The best thing about the place is ALL the people are super nice (every time), comforting, and do their jobs WELL. I waited until I had ample time to make a determination before writing this review, and they are GREAT!
Don't everyone go there though, because really I want them all to myself.
- Jason L. 0/31/2015
Thank you for giving me my smile back! You are the first dentist to actually take the time to explain everything to me.
