Invisible Aligners

Are your teeth crooked or gapped? Do you wish you could have a straight and beautiful smile but don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces? At Dapto Cosmetic and Family Dental, we have a fantastic solution—ClearCorrect!

What Is ClearCorrect?

To align teeth, ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually shift teeth a little bit at a time. The result is a beautiful, aligned smile that boosts confidence.

How Does It Work?

Treatment with ClearCorrect involves four phases. Each stage requires a new set of aligners that you wear over a three-week period. You must wear ClearCorrect aligners for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only for eating and drinking, or while brushing and flossing. Designed for maximum aesthetics, the aligners are barely noticeable and won’t interfere with your daily routine.

After you wear each set of aligners, you will notice great results as your teeth begin to straighten slowly. You will have periodic checkups with your dentist so we can assess your progress. During those visits, we will give you the next set of aligners. This process will continue until you have achieved your desired smile. Treatment time can vary from one to two years, depending on your specific condition and degree of misalignment.

ClearCorrect is suitable to treat adults and teenagers. It can be used to address the following orthodontic conditions:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Spacing between teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crooked or turned teeth

The First Visit: The first step is coming in for a complimentary consult. We will take a digital scan of your mouth and then will send to the lab. Our dentist will ask questions to get more information about your oral health history to determine if you have any dental disease. We also will book you in for a dental exam and clean.

The Second Visit: At this appointment, we will get the feedback from the lab and will detail the costs associated with treatment. But we may say, for example, that you have a few fillings that we need to take care of first. If we then determine that your dental health is good, we can start treatment.

Is everyone an ideal candidate for ClearCorrect?

No, some people require fixed orthodontic braces. ClearCorrect is ideal for simple tooth aligning cases. It’s an excellent solution for those who are looking more for an aesthetic treatment versus a functional treatment.

We will take a scan on everyone and submit to a local lab. The lab may say that an individual isn’t an ideal candidate for clear aligners. For example, a child may have a complex orthodontic case. If that’s the case, we can refer them to another dentist or orthodontist.

How long does ClearCorrect treatment take?

It depends on the case. It could take 6 months or 9 months. If your treatment takes longer, there won’t be any additional cost to you—only an additional cost in time. We won’t say that your treatment is completed until the dentist, parent and child are all happy with the results.

How do I take care of my teeth after treatment?

Just as is the case with our other patients, we would recommend you come in for regular checkups and cleans.
