Measure & Make

If you decide to go ahead, we’ll take a digital impression of your smile for the boffins at ClearCorrect’s laboratory. They’ll use this to produce your comfortable, discreet, removable aligners.

Hello Again

Hello Again!

When we receive your aligners – or trays – from the laboratory, we’ll invite you back to the clinic for your first fitting.

We may attach teeny ‘buttons’ to your teeth to help the aligners work more efficiently. You’ll take home several aligners (6-10 avg) and you’re ready to go!

Your follow up appointment

Your Follow-Up Appointment

After a few weeks, we’ll invite you for a follow-up appointment to make sure treatment is going to plan. We’ll check your tray fits comfortably and that teeth are beginning to move. If all’s going well, you can move on to the next aligner. From here on, you can usually swap aligners at home and won’t need to see us each time.

Smile - all done

Smile – All Done!

Wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day and you’ll notice results within weeks. Treatment time is usually 8-14 months – but of course, everyone’s different.

We’ll give you a retainer to wear at night while you sleep to stop teeth from moving back to their old position when treatment is over.

Teeth Straightening Tips & Advice

Clean While you Eat

Clean While You Eat

It’s easier to keep to the recommended 20-22 hours of daily wear if you clean your aligner while eating. A five-minute soak in cleaning solution once or twice a day while you eat will keep your aligner at its freshest and best.


If only remembering to put your aligner back in was as easy as removing it in the first place! Don’t risk your ClearCorrect aligner ending up in lost property – set a phone alarm to remind you to pop it back in after eating.

Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush

Don’t Forget Your Toothbrush

You’ll probably find yourself brushing and cleaning more than usual when wearing a clear aligner. HINT: A travel-sized bag filled with toothpaste, toothbrush, floss and an outie could be your new best friend during treatment. Don’t forget to pack your case!

Better at Nightzzz

Better at Nightzz

Some things were meant to be done at night – like moving on to a new ClearCorrect aligner. Swapping to a new aligner just before bedtime means you can leave it in for longer without interruption. You’ll also sleep through the least comfortable part of treatment.

Use an Outie

Use an Outie

No, not your belly button. An aligner removal tool like The Outie can help preserve well-manicured nails – plus, it’s an altogether more elegant solution than fingers in mouths at the dinner table.

Case Closed

Case Closed

Problem: Apart from being yuckier than you think, an aligner wrapped in a napkin is sure to find its way into a bin eventually. Try a stylish aligner case instead

Matte’s Where it’s at

Matte’s Where it’s at

Contrary to popular belief, wearing ClearCorrect aligners isn’t a tradeoff with wearing lippy. The key to success is choosing one that won’t rub off on your aligner. For this, matte’s where it’s at – and leave plenty of time to dry before hitting the town.

Ditch Coloured Sweets

If you’re a fan of boiled sweets and other sugary treats packed with colourings and sugar, it’s time to give them a rest. These can stain your aligner, leaving you with a Day-Glo smile until it’s time to swap. Not a good look!

Remember VIolet Beauregarde

Remember Violet Beauregard

If you think what happened to poor Violet Beauregarde wasn’t pretty, just wait until you try chewing gum while wearing an aligner. Dear friends, we surely all agree this one’s a HUGE NOPE.

No Cheating

No Cheating

Tempting as it may be to skimp on the recommended 22 hours of daily wear – don’t! It’ll only mean treatment takes ages longer than expected. Plus, there’s no getting past our dentists who can spot cheating a mile off.

FAQs About ClearCorrect

Can I Kiss in ClearCorrect?

We hate to tell you this, but if you’re using your teeth to kiss, you’re doing it all wrong! You don’t need to take out your ClearCorrect aligner for kissing or Netflix and chill.

Is treatment comfortable?

Is Treatment Comfortable?

We like to think we’ve found the perfect balance between comfort and treatment time.

Wearing ClearCorrect aligners isn’t painful, but you may find it a little uncomfortable in the first days of treatment or when you progress from one aligner to the next – but it shouldn’t last longer than a day or two.

You may also notice changes to your bite – the way your upper and lower teeth connect. While that isn’t painful, some people say it does take a little getting used to. Changes to your bite are often the first sign that your ClearCorrect aligner is beginning to work.

The longer you wear your aligners, the more comfortable and natural they’ll feel

Is ClearCorrect Really Invisible?

Is ClearCorrect Really Invisible?

Not quite – but they’re not easy to spot!

Most people won’t notice you wearing your aligner. But, occasionally, you may notice people do a double-take or ask what you are wearing on your teeth.

Could ClearCorrect Affect My Schpeech?

Could ClearCorrect Affect My Schpeech?

It’s rare, but some people notice a slight lisp when first trying on their aligner. It’ll subside quickly, but it’s best to avoid making any grand speeches for an hour or two after leaving the clinic

WTH are Those Weird Bumps on My Teeth!?

WTH are Those Weird Bumps on
My Teeth!?

Sometimes, we may add tooth-coloured engagers – or buttons – to your teeth to help your aligner achieve complex tooth movements. Engagers are easy to remove when treatment is over.

How Long Does ClearCorrect
Treatment Take?

It depends on your goals. You should expect to spend anything from 8-14 months in treatment – although it could be weeks in some cases.

ClearCorrect - What’s the Daily Wear Time?

ClearCorrect – What’s the Daily
Wear Time?

Your total daily wear should add up to 20-22 hours. Any less, and you could find your teeth reverting to their former position, so sticking to your daily routine is key

Will I Need to Wear a Retainer?

Will I Need to Wear a Retainer?

Just like with all other orthodontic systems, you’ll have to wear an aligner after treatment to prevent relapse. But don’t worry – you can wear it at night while you sleep.

What are ClearCorrect Aligners Made of?

Aligners are made from unique ClearQuartz resin that’s specially formulated for ClearCorrect. The plastic is strong, flexible and stain-resistant. But best of all, it’s completely transparent – so it’s almost impossible to spot.

Do ClearCorrect Aligners Contain BPA or Phthalates?

Do ClearCorrect Aligners Contain
BPA or Phthalates?

Nope. ClearCorrect aligners are made without BPA or phthalates. They’re food-safe, biocompatible and approved for use by the relevant EU and UK bodies.

Can I Wear ClearCorrect if I’m Pregnant or Nursing?

Can I Wear ClearCorrect if I’m Pregnant
or Nursing?

Yes! ClearCorrect aligners are free from harmful chemicals and suitable for use when pregnant or breastfeeding. Always ask a dental professional if you are unsure or have questions.
