How much do ClearCorrect aligners cost?

Each doctor sets their own fees. The cost to patients is generally comparable to other orthodontic options. An estimate will be given upon consultation

Are ClearCorrect aligners covered by dental insurance?

Many dental plans do include coverage for orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners. If you meet your insurance company’s eligibility requirements, they may cover a portion of the total treatment cost up to a lifetime maximum. Your doctor and insurance company can provide more details.

Do I have to pay for everything up front?

Not necessarily. Many doctors offer monthly payment plans to help fit your budget.

How often should I wear aligners?

Wear aligners as directed by your doctor—usually two to three weeks per step, at least 22 hours per day. Take them out to eat and brush your teeth.

How long does treatment take?

This varies from patient to patient. Treatment can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the complexity of the case.

How visible are clear aligners?

Clear aligners are completely transparent, which makes them much more discreet than metal braces. People usually don’t notice them. They’re not magic, however—you can see them at close range if you know what to look for.

Does ClearCorrect treat patients directly?

No. ClearCorrect manufactures aligners based on prescriptions from dentists and orthodontists. You and your doctor play the biggest role in ensuring the success of your treatment.

Does ClearCorrect guarantee perfect results?

Most patients do experience significant improvement in their smiles, but it’s impossible to guarantee the outcome of any orthodontic treatment. Your results may vary.

Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?

To prevent relapse, doctors usually prescribe a retainer after any orthodontic treatment. ClearCorrect offers affordable, discreet clear retainers suitable for patients treated with clear aligners or traditional metal braces.

Can I make the switch to invisible braces if I am currently wearing braces?

Yes. If you are having trouble keeping your teeth clean, want to feel more comfortable and don’t want to let people know that you’re straightening your teeth, then invisible braces could work well for you. But, switching to invisible braces can cause added expense to your budget, but provides you a great comfort and convenience. Consulting with your orthodontist can help you make the decision that is best for your comfort and health.
