ClearCorrect vs. Invisalign | Which is the Better Option?
Clear aligners are an increasingly popular orthodontic treatment that provides patients with a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Among the most popular brands of clear aligners are ClearCorrect and Invisalign, which are both trusted by dentists and have been used successfully to treat a variety of orthodontic issues.

ClearCorrect and Invisalign cost comparison
One of the main considerations when choosing a clear aligner brand is the cost. While both ClearCorrect and Invisalign are generally covered by insurance, the actual cost of treatment can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as the complexity of the case and the length of treatment.
In general, ClearCorrect has a lower starting price than Invisalign, but the final cost of treatment will depend on the specific needs of each patient. Patients should consult with their dental professional to get an accurate estimate of the total cost of treatment for each brand.
To give you an idea of the cost, our clinics offer ClearCorrect starting at just $2,899.
Material Technology Comparison between ClearCorrect and Invisalign.
ClearCorrect and Invisalign use high-quality materials to create their custom aligners. Both systems use 3D scanning technology to create a precise model of the patient's teeth, which is then used to create a set of custom aligners.
ClearCorrect uses a thinner and less visible BPA-free Clear Quartz clear plastic for its aligners. This material is designed to be both durable and comfortable, providing a secure fit that minimizes irritation or rubbing. In contrast, Invisalign uses a patented thermoplastic material called SmartTrack, which is designed to provide a precise and comfortable fit.
Comfort and Fit of ClearCorrect and Invisalign Aligners
One of the most important factors in the success of any orthodontic treatment is the comfort and fit of the aligners. ClearCorrect aligners are designed to fit snugly over the teeth, minimizing discomfort and irritation during the treatment process. The aligners are made from a thin and flexible plastic material that conforms closely to the contours of the teeth, providing a secure fit that helps to minimize the risk of rubbing or irritation.
Similarly, Invisalign aligners are designed to provide a comfortable and precise fit over the teeth. The aligners are custom-made for each patient using a 3D digital scan of their teeth, which allows for an accurate fit and control over the movement of the teeth during treatment.
Both ClearCorrect and Invisalign are effective at treating a variety of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, and underbites. The success of the treatment will depend on the individual case, but both systems have a track record of success.
One potential advantage of ClearCorrect is that it may be more effective in treating certain types of orthodontic issues, such as mild to moderate cases of crowding or spacing. In contrast, Invisalign may be an option for complex cases or cases that require precise movement of the teeth.
Choosing the right clear aligner system is an important decision that should be made in consultation with a dental professional. Both ClearCorrect and Invisalign are effective and reliable options for orthodontic treatment, and the choice between the two will depend on a variety of factors, including the individual case, cost, and personal preferences. Ultimately, patients should work with their dental professional to determine the best option for their specific needs.
