How effective are ClearCorrect braces?

The effectiveness of ClearCorrect braces depends on your diagnosis, treatment plan, and follow-up care. You may need your teeth straightened, your bite corrected, the gaps closed between your teeth, or your teeth and lips properly aligned. You may also require additional orthodontic devices after you have worn braces to ensure long-term success. Talk with your orthodontist about the best orthodontic procedures for your teeth.

The color, location, and style are mainly a preference.
