Straighter Teeth Without Pain!
If you wish you had straighter teeth but don’t want to deal with unsightly metal braces, ClearCorrect invisible aligners could be a great option for you! Invisible aligners are a custom-made series of snug-fitting, comfortable clear aligners that gently straighten your teeth over the course of several months, and are virtually undetectable when worn. They are excellent for older teens and adults who wish to correct mild to moderate crowded teeth or spacing and bite issues.

What is ClearCorrect
ClearCorrect is perhaps the most well-known clear aligner system in the country thanks to the millions of people who have transformed their smile with this service. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks at a time. From there, you move onto the next pair in your series until you wear all of them. During this process, you’ll need to visit our dental office once every 6 weeks or so in order to confirm that your realignment is working as intended.
How Do ClearCorrect Work
Unlike traditional metal braces, which are cemented onto your teeth and can only be removed by your orthodontist, invisible aligners can be removed by the wearer. Though they should be worn every single day for at least 22 hours a day for effective results, they can be removed while eating and cleaning the teeth. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and then switched to the next in the series of aligners, each piece designed to gradually and gently move your teeth into place according to your custom treatment plan. Depending on your unique case, treatment can last anywhere between three to eighteen months.
