What is C5™?


Save time with quick treatments and fewer in-person appointments.


Tiny orthodontic wires are bonded to the back of the tooth’s surface, making them completely hidden from view.


Our team of orthodontic specialists personalize a treatment plan based on your specific needs.


Our tiny wires are super thin and comfortable, and you’ll barely notice them during treatment.


Boost your confidence with your transformed smile.

Benefits of C5 Hidden Orthodontics™

  • Completely Hidden. C5 is so discreet that no one will even notice wires behind your teeth.
  • Exclusive Technology. This teeth straightening technology gets rave reviews and is only available at our offices.
  • Fast Results. Most patients complete C5 treatment in 6-9 months.
  • Absolutely NO Maintenance. Unlike clear aligners that require brushing after eating and drinking beverages other than water, C5 is a ‘fix it and forget it’ option. Just brush as usual.
  • More Food Options. You don’t have to worry about avoiding crunchy or sticky foods that might dislodge a bracket or get stuck in wires.
  • Less Expensive. C5 is usually less expensive than lingual braces, Invisalign, and other clear aligner brands.*
  • More Comfort. We seal the thin wires to your teeth, and nothing is protruding. No bulky brackets here! (Compare lingual bracket and wire braces to our revolutionary C5 treatment.)

*Based on review of a Journal of Clinical Orthodontics (JCO) survey of the average price of clear aligners.

A Personalized Approach to Your C5 Hidden Orthodontics™ Treatment

Following is the step-by-step process of what you can expect during your C5 treatment at an ALTA SMILES location.


Book an Initial Complimentary Consultation

To begin, we’ll schedule a quick 10-minute video call to get some initial snap shots of your teeth and discuss your goals. After our orthodontist reviews the images of your teeth, we’ll let you know if you’re a good candidate for C5 and provide a customized treatment plan. We’ll tell you what to expect, provide the estimated length of treatment, and answer any questions you have.


Create a Digital 3D Model of Your Mouth

The next step is to create a 3D digital model and get all your diagnostics at one of our convenient locations. You’ll be able to see precise tooth movements and the result you can expect after treatment.


C5 Orthodontic Memory Wire Bonding

Wires are precisely placed on the back of your teeth and completely customized for you. They will feel comfortable and smooth.


Watch Your Smile Transform

After one of our doctors places your wires, we’ll ask you to come in every 5-7 weeks for wire adjustments when they are needed. We’ll check in with you virtually throughout treatment using our exclusive technology so that we can time your adjustments optimally. You can be sure our orthodontist is keeping a careful eye on your case, but we eliminate unnecessary office visits to save you time.

I was hesitant for so long to find a treatment for my crooked teeth since I only thought Invisalign® or braces were an option. The doctor at ALTA SMILES recommended C⁵ Hidden Orthodontics™ which was

I chose C5 because I’m getting married in October and this was one of the quickest procedures to get my teeth straightened in that amount of time. — Zachary
