What is Clear Correct?
If you're a good candidate for clear correction aligners, your doctor will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of your teeth, and submit your prescription to Clear Correct aligners.
We'll make a series of aligners customized to apply pressure to the teeth that you want to move. Your doctor will check your progress periodically and give you new sets of aligners. You'll wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day, progressing through each step until your treatment is done.
How much do Clear Correct aligners cost?
Each doctor sets their own fees. The cost to patients is generally comparable to other orthodontic options, ranging from around $2,000 to $8,000 USD, depending on the complexity of treatment, your location, and other factors.
Are Clear Correct aligners covered by dental insurance?
Many dental plans do include coverage for orthodontic appliances such as clear aligners.

Your doctor and insurance company can provide more details.
