Reach out to our staff today at 757-340-8155 to find out if you can benefit from clear aligners.

No one wants crooked or gapped teeth—but most people don’t want to deal with the discomfort or hassle of traditional wire braces, either. Thankfully, dental technology has come a long way. With ClearCorrect, you can straighten your teeth using a virtually invisible set of aligners.

ClearCorrect aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces, make brushing and flossing easier, and best of all, are discreet. If you’re ready for a straighter smile, give us a call at Waterman Family Dentistry. We’re conveniently located off I-264 in Virginia Beach, VA.

How Does ClearCorrect Orthodontic Treatment Work?

Treatment planning for ClearCorrect involves multiple phases. The entire treatment may take up to a full year. During treatment, our dentist will provide you with custom aligners for your top teeth as well as the bottom row. You’ll need a new aligner every few weeks as your teeth begin to shift.

Who Is This Treatment Option For?

ClearCorrect treatment is ideal for people with:

  • Gaps in their teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Crowded teeth

Discreet Treatment for Teens and Adults

We find that many adults prefer ClearCorrect treatments to metal braces due to their discreet nature. However, because of the customizability of the aligners, any patient with mild to moderate misalignment can benefit from ClearCorrect. Our team will recommend alternative treatments if you are not a good candidate for invisible aligners.

What Are the Benefits of Clear Braces Compared to Traditional Braces?

Along with the fact that ClearCorrect aligners are nearly undetectable, the treatment process offers a few other benefits when compared to treatment with traditional braces:

  • Invisible braces are an affordable option for patients who want straighter teeth. ClearCorrect treatments often cost significantly less than traditional braces and are covered by some insurance plans.
  • Treatment with ClearCorrect doesn’t require as many appointments since they don’t need tightening and maintenance like traditional braces.
  • You can remove ClearCorrect aligners when eating and drinking. This ease of removability also makes it easy to keep your teeth and aligners clean.
  • Unlike metal braces, there are no food restrictions with clear aligners—you can eat whatever you like when you like.
  • You won’t have to deal with the discomfort of metal braces, which can occasionally cause or exacerbate dental injuries.
