Much like Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™ is an alternative to traditional metal braces. Metal braces are unsightly and can be embarrassing for adults and older teens. In addition, wire and bracket braces are non-removable and can be difficult to clean. This means that traditional braces can be uncomfortable and inconvenient for a significant period of time when used to straighten adult and teen teeth.
Austin cosmetic dentist John Schmid, DDS, strongly believes our patients deserve the most comfortable and effective treatments available. If you are dissatisfied with crooked teeth or a bad bite, Dr. Schmid can discuss Invisalign-like options such as ClearCorrect with you and help you determine if this exciting orthodontic break-through is the best solution for your smile.

How ClearCorrect™ Works
Like Invisalign, ClearCorrect treatment begins with a detailed examination of your teeth and jaw. If it is determined that ClearCorrect is right for you, Dr. Schmid will send an impression of your teeth along with photos, X-rays, and his treatment plan to the ClearCorrect lab. ClearCorrect will send you a set of "Phase Zero" aligners that perform no straightening function but allow you to get accustomed to wearing aligner trays. You will continue to wear these until your first set of customized trays comes to our office.
As with Invisalign, each set of ClearCorrect aligners is crafted using state-of-the-art 3D computer technology. You will wear each set of aligners for a designated period of time before returning to our office for your next set. Each set of aligners will progressively straighten your teeth by pushing them slightly more into their correct position. Complete treatment can take as few as 12 months and has been proven to be effective at treating many different cases of tooth misalignment.
Clear, wireless braces like Invisalign and ClearCorrect offer a number of advantages over traditional braces. Because the trays are clear, these options are much more aesthetically pleasing. The ability to remove your trays provides additional benefits such as:
- No dietary restrictions
- No interference with dental hygiene and teeth cleaning
- No risk of damage to gums or soft oral tissue
- No discoloration caused by stains trapped under wire or brackets
ClearCorrect can be faster, cleaner, and more comfortable than braces, making them the obvious choice for many of our Austin area patients.
