Is ClearCorrect Right for You: Evaluation & Treatment Expectations

More and more people long  for that gorgeous, perfect smile, the kind of smile that helps you face the day with confidence. Luckily,  traditional braces are no longer the only option to achieve it. Today, modern dentistry has welcomed another option called ClearCorrect aligners. 

These accessories act the same way as traditional braces, but in a more discreet way to keep your teeth aligned. But do you think ClearCorrect is the right one for you?  

What is ClearCorrect Treatment? 

ClearCorrect is a straightening device that is made especially for the wearer of the aligners. These can only be available at your dentist or orthodontist’s clinic to make sure these plastic aligners fit well on your teeth. Unlike traditional braces, ClearCorrect aligners are virtually invisible, making them an appealing option for those seeking a less conspicuous way to straighten their teeth. 

How Does ClearCorrect Work? 

Like traditional braces, ClearCorrect also needs a lot of work before you can even arrive at your desired outcome. Here’s an overview of how ClearCorrect aligners work

Initial Consultation and Evaluation 

During this consultation, your dental professional will take a look at your teeth. They will have to assess your teeth and bite, take digital scans or impressions, and develop a treatment plan made especially for you. This plan will outline the precise movements of your teeth and the estimated duration of your treatment. 

Customised Aligners 

Based on your treatment plan, a series of clear aligners will be created specifically for your teeth. Each set of aligners is designed to be worn for about two weeks before hopping to the next set in the series. These are typically made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic that is easy and snug to wear.  

Gradual Progress 

Each aligner will give you that gentle, but consistent pressure on your teeth that will gradually shift into their positions. These will be worn for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Take note that regular check-ups with your dentist or orthodontist is still important to ensure your treatment is progressing. 

Completion of Treatment 

Once you have gone through all the aligners in your series, your treatment is complete! Your dentist may recommend wearing retainers to maintain your new smile and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position. 

Is ClearCorrect Right for You? 

ClearCorrect is the option you’re looking for if you want to straighten your teeth, especially when you are looking for something more discreet. However, not all people can be eligible for it. Here are a few things to consider if is right for you: 

Severity of Misalignment 

ClearCorrect is most effective for mild to moderate cases of misalignment. If you have severe crowding, large gaps between your teeth, or a complex bite issue, these may not be the solution that’s best for you. You can benefit more from traditional braces than ClearCorrect. 


ClearCorrect aligners are removable, but you need to wear them for at least 22 hours a day to be effective. If you are not sure you can commit to wearing them, ClearCorrect may not be the right choice for you. 


ClearCorrect can be a more affordable option than traditional braces, but it’s still an investment. It’s better to discuss your options with your dentist or orthodontist to get an estimate for treatment. 

How Much Does ClearCorrect Cost in Australia? 

The cost of ClearCorrect treatment in Australia depends on many factors. Your dentist will have to check the:  

  • Complexity of your case: The severity of your misalignment and the overall treatment plan complexity will influence the price. 
  • Number of aligners required: The total number of aligner trays you need throughout the treatment can also affect the total amount of the treatment.  
  • Dentist’s experience and location: The cost of the entire treatment will also depend on your dentist’s expertise and the clinic’s location. 

There is no definite price on how much ClearCorrect costs in Australia, but it typically ranges from $3,000 AUD to $8,000 AUD. 

We know it can be a hefty price. Good thing Blue Gum Dental has different payment plans you can choose from to get your teeth straightened with ease. 

Additional Considerations 

If you’re considering ClearCorrect, the best way to find out if it is right for you is to schedule a consultation with your dentist. They are the ones who can give you a clear assessment of your individual needs and determine if ClearCorrect is the right one for you. They  may recommend you to have ClearCorrect according to:  

  • Your Age: While ClearCorrect is suitable for teens and adults, some dental issues in younger children may be better addressed with other orthodontic treatments. 
  • Your Overall Oral Health: Good oral health is a must for ClearCorrect treatment. Issues such as gum disease or tooth decay will need to be addressed first before starting ClearCorrect treatment. 
  • Your Dental Hygiene Habits: Maintaining excellent dental hygiene is also important while wearing aligners to prevent cavities and other oral health issues.


If you fit these criteria, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth to create a custom treatment plan along with instructions on how to wear and care for your aligners.
