Early & Late Hours Available • Wellington Dental Emergencies Welcome
Gumucio Dental offers Wellington ClearCorrect, a discreet system for straightening teeth. Most people have teeth with irregular alignment. These malocclusions cause a variety of problems, such as spacing, bite imbalances, and crowded teeth. With ClearCorrect, clear, removable trays are used to place gradual pressure on teeth and shift them into place. Many adults are very happy to find that they can improve their smiles without using conspicuous wires, springs, metal, or rubber bands. Responsible teenagers can be candidates for these “invisible braces,” as well. Discretion during the process of straightening your teeth is just one of many benefits of ClearCorrect.
ClearCorrect Aligners offer Comfort and Convenience
When traditional braces are used, certain foods are off limits, and it’s difficult to care for teeth using best practices. With Wellington ClearCorrect, the trays are removed when you eat. There are no limitations to what you can enjoy at snack time or during meals. The aligners are removed during mealtimes and when brushing your teeth. The trays need to be worn 22 hours per day, to ensure success of the treatment. ClearCorrect aligners are also far more comfortable to the tongue and cheeks than wire braces.
Schedule a Consultation
The first step in determining whether ClearCorrect is the right straightening method for you is to schedule a consultation with us at Gumucio Dental. During the consultation, we will conduct a complete examination and assessment and let you know whether ClearCorrect is an option for you. Upwards of 90% of adults are able to effectively use ClearCorrect to improve their smiles.
If it is determined that you will benefit from Wellington ClearCorrect aligners, photographs and x-rays will be taken, as a next step. The shape and layout of your teeth will be captured either by using a scanner or by making impressions. The prescription for your aligners is then sent to ClearCorrect.
How Teeth are Straightened using ClearCorrect
When your prescription for trays is fulfilled, a series of aligners will be made especially for you. As you wear the aligners, pressure will be applied to the teeth that need to be moved. During routine visits at Gumucio Dental, your treatment progress will be evaluated. Every few weeks or so, you will receive a new set of aligners, which will continue the progress of shifting your teeth into the right positions.
An Overview of Benefits:
The following is an overview of top advantages of straightening your teeth using ClearCorrect:
- It is common to have a shorter treatment time with aligners, as compared with wire braces. It can take as little as 12 months to achieve best results with ClearCorrect, whereas wire braces usually take between 18 months and two years, on average.
- Clear aligners are less noticeable, which means you can enjoy much greater discretion than is possible with wire braces.
- There is no need to change your diet because you can eat whatever you choose when using ClearCorrect.
- Straightening teeth using trays is a comfortable way to give your smile a complete makeover. The gums and cheeks don’t experience the soreness associated with wire braces.
