ClearCorrect trayTell me if this sounds like you.

You’re an adult, with a job and a family and everything else, and you’re pretty happy with your life, except for one thing: your smile. You see, your teeth have always been crooked, crowded, or gapped, and you’ve wanted to do something about them for years. The problem is that the absolute LAST thing you want to do is bring even MORE attention to your teeth by getting bulky, noticeable metal braces. So, you just hide your smile whenever you see someone you know or a picture is being taken. Does this sound familiar?

Fortunately, there is now another way you can get the straighter smile you’ve always wanted, and it doesn’t involve metal brackets or wires. ClearCorrect in Corpus Christi uses a series of custom-made clear plastic aligner trays to gently straighten the teeth, and it offers numerous advantages over traditional orthodontics.

It’s Completely Unnoticeable

Take a look at this video. The whole thing is less than 3 minutes and gives a fantastic explanation of how ClearCorrect works, but you should fast forward to about 39 seconds so you can actually see the trays.

What do you notice about the woman’s smile once she puts them on?

Absolutely nothing, and that’s exactly what your friends and family will see whenever you wear the trays. They are able to effectively move the teeth in the most discreet way possible so you can get the treatment you need without having to worry about your daily appearance.

It’s Removable

Did you notice how she was able to quickly put them on? This is because you can do one thing with ClearCorrect that you can never do with braces: take it out.

While you’re supposed to wear the trays as much as you can, it’s OK to take them out whenever you need to eat or brush your teeth. This means, unlike with braces, you won’t have to alter your diet during treatment, nor will you need to spend extra time cleaning your teeth.

ClearCorrect is able to slip seamlessly into your life and improve it without affecting your daily habits.

It’s Comfortable

One of the most common complaints with metal braces is that the brackets and wires irritate the gums and lips, and it’s no wonder why. Metal and soft tissues don’t mix!

With ClearCorrect, however, the smooth plastic trays will be custom-designed to fit your unique smile so they slip easily into your mouth without causing discomfort. While new trays might feel a bit tight for the first few days, after that, you’ll likely forget that you’re wearing them!

It’s Fast

In many cases, ClearCorrect can straighten the teeth much faster than traditional metal braces, with treatments taking about 8-15 months as opposed to 12-24. Plus, because the trays don’t have to be regularly adjusted like braces, you won’t have to come in to see your dentist as often for progress checks, saving you loads of time over the course of your treatment.

How Can I Get ClearCorrect?

With ClearCorrect, you have a clear path to the straighter smile you’ve always wanted, and due to its subtle nature, the only thing people will notice are your beautiful results.

If you’re curious about what it can do for your smile, simply contact a dentist in your area today and ask if they offer ClearCorrect.
