What’s new in removable braces? Let us show you ClearCorrect!
Looking for an alternative to metal braces? ClearCorrect is the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort—every reason to smile. With ClearCorrect Dr. Levens can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth. And unlike most aligner systems Dr. Levens can make changes to the plan as you progress through the aligners making your treatment even more tailored just for you.
How does ClearCorrect work?
You and Dr. Levens will evaluate your teeth and talk about any problems or goals you have for your smile. Once you and Dr. Levens establish that ClearCorrect is the right treatment option for you we will take a digital scan of your teeth to send to the ClearCorrect laboratory including your photos, and x-rays of your teeth. Then, working with Dr. Levens on the plan for your treatment, the ClearCorrect lab manufacturers your custom aligners.
What can ClearCorrect do?
Although not perfect for every situation, ClearCorrect can treat a wide variety of issues that keep people from achieving their ideal smiles. Straighter teeth don’t just look better; they work better too. Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, wear out quicker, and are more prone to cavities.
