Straighten Your Teeth Without Braces
ClearCorrect clear aligners
ClearCorrect is an alternative to traditional braces. Instead of metal wires, brackets and rubber bands, it uses a series of hard plastic aligners, which are similar to a night guard or a retainer. These aligners are built to gently shift the position of the teeth, and are worn for 20-22+ hours per day. They are removed only to eat, brush, and floss. With traditional braces, plaque can build up easily as they are quite hard to clean. Because ClearCorrect aligners are removable, it is much easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Plus, they are nearly invisible when worn, so no one will be able to tell you are straightening your teeth.
How Does ClearCorrect Work?
The ClearCorrect Process
After you’re approved for ClearCorrect, Dr. Jones will take impressions of your teeth. Then, he will send them to ClearCorrect, and work with them to design your smile correction plan. Your first sets of aligners will arrive at Will Jones Dentistry in about 3-4 weeks.You’ll wear each set of aligners for 20-22+ hours per day, and switch to a new set of aligners every 2 weeks. You will also come into our office for a quick oral exam and to get your next several sets of aligners every 4-6 weeks. Most patients require 20-24 sets of aligners to correct their smile, so the average treatment time is about a year.

Fast Treatment with Tooth-Colored Braces
Six Month Smiles
The Six Month Smiles treatment uses clear plastic brackets and tooth-colored wire to minimize the appearance of your braces. With this advanced dental technology, we can straighten your teeth and correct cosmetic issues in just six months or less.
You’ll start with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Will, who will take impressions of your teeth, x-rays, and images of your mouth. Then, Dr. Will will work with Six Month Smiles to develop your custom treatment plan. Once your braces are attached, you’ll come in every 4-6 weeks to have them adjusted until your teeth are shifted into proper position. Typically, treatment times range between 4-9 months.

Candidates for Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is primarily intended to correct cosmetic orthodontic issues, like gaps in your smile and alignment issues. It’s not a good choice for patients who have more serious orthodontic problems like an overbite, a malpositioned jaw, or extremely crooked teeth. To find out if it’s right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jones now.
