Through our cosmetic dental procedures at our Durango, Colorado office of Durango Laser Dentistry we can drastically change and improve the appearance of your smile. Recognizing that every smile is different, we provide a wide range of treatments that can benefit anyone. One way to change your smile is through traditional braces, but at our office, we also offer a new and updated form of orthodontics called Clear Correct. 

Please continue reading to learn more about Clear Correct and the differences between aligners and traditional wire braces.


The Treatment 

Your specific Clear Correct treatment will depend on the current state of your bite and alignment. Orthodontics corrects crooked teeth and the malalignment of jaws. 

To start your Clear Correct treatment, your first step is to consult with our dentist to be sure it is the best option for you and your smile. Then, the dentist will take pictures of your face, X-rays, and 3D molds of your smile to help design your custom treatment plan. 

Clear Correct consists of a series of personalized aligners that, over time, will gradually push and pull your teeth into the correct position. You will be given one set of aligners at a time to wear for a minimum of 2 weeks, and then will be directed to upgrade to the next set. Each set will move your teeth more than the previous set. 

Your length of treatment will be completely tailored to your needs, but generally, treatment with Clear Correct can last anywhere from 12-18 months. 

At Durango Laser Dentistry we work closely with each patient to make sure it is the best possible option and treatment for their needs. 


Clear Correct Benefits 

  • Although traditional metal braces are very common and popular, many adults want to keep a professional appearance while straightening their teeth. Clear Correct is completely invisible. 
  • While having traditional braces, many have found themselves feeling self-conscious to go out in public or even smile. Clear Correct can help patients feel comfortable with their smile, even throughout treatment.
  • Clear Correct treatment is usually a faster fix than traditional braces.
