Crooked teeth can lower your confidence and raise your risk of tooth decay. If you’re unhappy with your smile but don’t feel comfortable wearing conventional braces, Nate Gunning, DDS, and the dental team at Signature Smiles Dentistry in Parker, Colorado, offer ClearCorrect™ aligners. Clear aligners are just that — clear — so you won’t notice them when you smile. To schedule an appointment with the team today, call Signature Smiles Dentistry or book online.
Similar to Invisalign®, ClearCorrect is an orthodontic treatment that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth rather than metal wires and brackets. These nearly invisible aligners are custom made and conform to the natural shape of your teeth, so nobody can tell when you’re wearing them.
ClearCorrect straightens crooked teeth in the same way as conventional braces, by gradually moving each tooth into its correct place. In a matter of months, you can have perfectly straight teeth.
ClearCorrect targets many of the same dental concerns as braces, including:
However, clear aligners offer many benefits over traditional braces when it comes to overall aesthetics and comfort.
The most common benefits of ClearCorrect aligners over conventional braces include:
ClearCorrect looks completely invisible to the naked eye, so nobody can tell you’re straightening your teeth when you smile or speak.
Conventional braces have brackets that can irritate the inside of your cheeks. Because ClearCorrect aligners are smooth, they feel comfortable when you wear them.
You can’t remove conventional braces to brush and floss, but you can take out your clear aligners to care for your oral health care routine.
Traditional braces typically take 18 months to three years to straighten your teeth and align your bite. With ClearCorrect, you can have straighter teeth in as little as 1-2 years.
The team at Signature Smiles Dentistry uses digital technology to create your personalized ClearCorrect treatment plan. The first step is taking digital impressions of your mouth to serve as models for your custom clear aligners.
After sending your plan to the ClearCorrect lab, you’ll receive a new set of aligners every three weeks. For the best results, wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, taking them out to brush and floss after every meal.
The digital technology used by ClearCorrect allows the team to adjust your treatment plan as needed without impacting your busy schedule.
