How We Improve Smiles With Clear Aligners

September 18, 2019

Just because you have an uneven smile, doesn’t mean that metal braces are the only possible option to correct your misalignment. In fact, we often help teen and adult patients enjoy a more even smile with ClearCorrect™, a system that employs clear aligners that are barely visible when worn. In today’s blog, we’re looking at how this system works, and the special offers we have for our Kansas City, MO, patients.

The ClearCorrect™ Treatment Option

To begin, we will perform a detailed examination of your smile to assess the cause and extent of your misalignment. From there, we can decide if your smile benefits from clear aligner treatment. If so, we will create a series of aligners based on detailed impressions and measurements we gather of your smile. They will be created from a BPA-free, clear acrylic material. Over time, the aligners begin to reposition the teeth and correct misalignment. The total treatment time will take about a year, but the exact time will of course depend on the extent of your misalignment, and whether you’ve worn them as the dentist prescribed.

Wearing Your Clear Braces

You will need to wear a set for 20 to 22 hours every day, removing them only for meals or when brushing and flossing the teeth. As long as you wear them as prescribed, you may also be able to forgo them for special occasions, such as graduations, dates, or job interviews. You will upgrade to a new set every two weeks. Since you can remove them before meals, you don’t need to avoid certain foods or worry about them becoming trapped in your braces. You also have a much easier time brushing and flossing your teeth!

Our Special Offer

Right now, we have a special offer for those seeking treatment with ClearCorrect™! If you started treatment after January 1st of this year, or have just started treatment, then you qualify for a free teeth whitening treatment at the end of your experience. Which means you not only get to debut a more even smile, but a brighter one as well!

We would love to help you enjoy a more even and healthy smile!
