ClearCorrect has been aligning teeth and straightening smiles of its customers since 2006 all while detouring from the traditional braces method. The company works with over 20,000 doctors and delivers millions of clear aligners to their patients, making it the lead provider of clear aligner products used to correct malocclusion in customers.
ClearCorrect is headquartered in Round Rock, Texas and works through local dentists or orthodontists to provide consumers with aligners unique to their needs.

ClearCorrect offers customers two payment plans: Flex payment or Unlimited payment.
Customers looking for the most affordable upfront cost should select ClearCorrect’s Flex Plan. Flex lets customers pay per aligner. Instead of having to order a kit and pay for a predetermined amount of aligners, patients can order the exact amount they need. Because patients are paying for each aligner, this payment plan is best suited for those who need minimal dental work. Consider the Flex plan if you need:
Flex pricing means you’ll pay for each treatment setup you approve and each requested aligner/retainer. It also means you’ll need to approve a new setup each time you start or revise a treatment.
All orthodontic appliances are priced individually (not per step).
The Unlimited Plan has customers pay one upfront cost and everything aligner related (including revisions and replacements) is covered for five years. While the upfront cost can deter many customers, the five-year coverage can end up helping some customers save on the overall cost.
ClearCorrect’s Unlimited plan takes into account that sometimes your teeth won’t move as expected and you can request a revision. With a revision, a new treatment setup will be created (starting from your teeth’s current position) and requires no additional costs.
Customers who need moderate to severe dental work might want to consider the Unlimited plan. The initial cost covers retainers, replacements, and any revisions needed for a full five years. If something doesn’t go according to plan, you don’t have to worry about paying for new appliances and a new treatment plan.
Consider the Unlimited plan if you have:
Both options typically include all shipping costs (both ways).
The idea of at-home dentistry can seem daunting to some customers and they would prefer to work with their dentist to walk them through the entire ClearCorrect treatment plan.
ClearCorrect makes its aligners based on your dentist’s prescription, so there is no guesswork when it comes to creating an impression and you don’t have to worry about mailing the mold back to the company. It’s all taken care of by your dentist.
If you’re interested in getting invisible aligners, talk to your dentist and find out if they’re a ClearCorrect provider (if not, you can find a list of registered ClearCorrect clear aligners providers on the website).
Your dentist will take photos of your teeth and get your dental records and determine whether or not you’re a good candidate for invisible aligners. If you are accepted, your dentist will create a treatment plan and ClearCorrect will make you a set of plastic, clear aligners. You will then wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day for 7 days a week. The aligners are removable but you’ll only take them out when you’re eating or brushing your teeth. You'll also want to maintain good oral hygiene throughout the entire process — this will help prevent damaging plaque and bacteria. So be sure to brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day.
Throughout the entire treatment, you’ll continually check in with your dentist to ensure everything is going according to plan and you’re on your way to a straighter smile.
As one of the oldest invisible braces brands in the industry, ClearCorrect has been able to adjust and hone its product to be more comfortable for its customers. ClearCorrect was founded back in 2006 by doctors and orthodontic professionals.
In addition, because ClearCorrect offers no at-home treatment plan, customers are ensured that they will always receive proper dental and orthodontic expertise as they go into each physical appointment. With continual dental and orthodontic assistance along the way, patients will have a better handle on their oral hygiene and aligner up-keep habits and weather or not adjustments need to be made to their aligners — adjustments in how long to wear them, how to properly clean them, or if they are wearing them at the appropriate times.
ClearCorrect’s website is essentially a two-sided homepage for patients and for doctors. Since ClearCorrect provides its invisible aligners to customers through local dentists and orthodontists, the company leaves most of the informative work to the doctors.
There are frequently asked questions that ClearCorrect does address, such as cost and dental insurance information. However, ClearCorrect does not disclose the average treatment time for ClearCorrect aligners and other relevant information that would be useful to potential customers.
How much will ClearCorrect cost for you? Like Invisalign aligners, ClearCorrect works through local dentists and orthodontists to provide invisible braces to its customers. This roundabout way to provide aligners leads to prices similar to those of traditional metal braces.
ClearCorrect reports that its prices can range anywhere between $2,000 to $8,000, or an average of $5,000.
Just as some customers prefer to work with their dentist to get their perfect smile, others find having to continually visit the dentist’s office inconvenient. ClearCorrect can only provide invisible aligners to its customers who set up an appointment through local dentists and orthodontists. ClearCorrect does not send customers an in-home impression kit to receive treatment remotely.
This lack of an in-home treatment option is frustrating to customers because it leads to higher prices, longer treatment times, and inconvenient visits to the dentist. This lack of in-home treatment is peculiar in the invisible braces industry, where many other companies offer the in-home treatment option.
