ClearCorrect vs. Invisalign: Which Is Best For Me?

These days, getting a perfectly straight smile doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go through the awkward phases of traditional metal braces.

There are actually many more discreet options out there that can effectively improve your tooth alignment with none the wiser. Two very popular types of treatments out there are ClearCorrect and Invisalign.

If you’ve been trying to decide between the two, check out this short blog post to discover which one may be more beneficial for you!

What Are Invisalign and ClearCorrect?

Both Invisalign and ClearCorrect work in very similar ways!

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that involves wearing a set of clear aligners over your teeth. They apply constant pressure to the teeth which helps them slowly move to their most optimal position.

ClearCorrect, at first glance, offers the same type of orthodontic treatment. Patients will wear clear aligners that reposition their teeth until the desired results are achieved.

With both treatments, patients need to wear the aligners for around 20-22 hours a day. The aligners are removable and must only be taken out when eating, drinking anything except water, and for oral hygiene purposes.

So now that you know how these two types of orthodontic treatments work, and how similar they are, it’s time to look at what sets them apart.

Invisalign and ClearCorrect: a Side-by-Side Comparison

  • Material - At first glance, both types of aligners can appear as though they are made from the same type of material. However, each company has a proprietary type of clear plastic. ClearCorrect uses ClearQuartz™ tri-layer material, which is tougher and more stain-resistant. Invisalign is made from SmartTrack, which is a bit more flexible; 
  • Aligner thickness - ClearCorrect aligners are thinner than Invisalign, which makes the former even less visible when the patient is wearing them. This can also make wearing the aligners more comfortable;
  • Price - ClearCorrect, in general, is the more affordable option, with treatment prices usually starting at around $2000 compared to Invisalign’s $5000. However, it greatly depends on the type of treatment tier the patient needs, as well as the length of treatment;
  • Effectiveness - Both ClearCorrect and Invisalign can offer patients great results. However, ClearCorrect’s aligners are sturdier and are known to hold their shape for longer than Invisalign, which usually needs to be changed a few times throughout a patient’s treatment.

In general, there aren’t a lot of major differences between ClearCorrect and Invisalign, but if you’re looking for something very discreet and comfortable, the balance can tip slightly to the ClearCorrect side.
