Say goodbye to metal braces and say hello to the invisible way to straighten your teeth.

So, you’ve been thinking long and hard about braces; however, you might still think that braces are only for children. Luckily, thisClear Correct isn’t true! In fact, more and more teens and adults are opting to get braces, especially since your New Port Richey dentist offers a variety of different kinds of subtle and clear braces to straighten your smile without anyone noticing. If you want a straighter smile without the metal brackets, then it’s time to consider how ClearCorrect could help you.

What is ClearCorrect?

ClearCorrect is a series of clear, removable trays that are custom-made to fit the upper and lower teeth to shift them into their proper position.

How do I get ClearCorrect?

You will first need to come in for a consultation, where your New Port Richey dentist will examine your smile and talk to you about your smile goals. If they match up with what ClearCorrect can do, then we will take X-rays and impressions of your smile and send your prescription to a lab to fabricate your aligners. Once your ClearCorrect is in, we will fit you with your first set of aligners. You will then come in to see us every four to six weeks to see how your treatment is progressing and to fit you with a new set of aligners.

What are the benefits of clear braces?

The first obvious benefit is that your braces are clear, so they will be invisible to those around you. Therefore, you won’t have to deal with coworkers or classmates staring at your braces.

Secondly, they are removable. This might not seem like the biggest benefit, but if you realize how many foods you won’t have to avoid while wearing traditional metal braces, you’ll be thankful that you opted for ClearCorrect. Enjoy all your favorite foods; just be sure to remove your aligners first.

Thirdly, you don’t have to deal with an exhausting oral care routine each day

How long will I wear my ClearCorrect?

The more often you wear your aligners the more effective your treatment. We highly recommend that patients were their ClearCorrect for at least 22 hours each day, only removing them to eat, drink or brush their teeth. Everyone’s length of treatment will be different; however, the average length tends to be around one year.

To find out if ClearCorrect could give you that perfect smile, schedule an appointment today with your New Port Richey dentist, Dr. James Lewis, DMD.
