ClearCorrect - Clear Aligners for Teeth Straightening

What is ClearCorrect?
ClearCorrect is an alternative cosmetic treatment to traditional braces that uses a series of clear custom made aligners to help straighten teeth. These removable aligners, worn for a minimum 22 hours per day, gradually move the crooked teeth until they reach a more ideal position.

How does ClearCorrect work?
Book an appointment: Contact our friendly team at Maven Dental Cairns North to arrange a consultation with our ClearCorrect provider Dr Mimi Tam


Evaluation: If a suitabe candidate, photos and x-rays will be taken of your mouth, and impressions of your teeth captured (either with a scanner or physical impression) - this prescription will then be sent through to ClearCorrect


Begin treatment: A series of clear customised aligners will be made and delivered to your dentist. Each aligner is designed to apply pressure to your teeth that require realignment. You'll meet periodically with Dr Mimi Tam to check on your progress and to change your aligner as your treatment progresses


What are the benefits of ClearCorrect?
Invisible - The clear aligners are virtually invisible, meaning people will barely notice you're wearing them
Removable - With the ability to remove the aligners whenever you choose, you can continue to eat whatever you like without worrying about food getting caught

What is Cfast?

Cfast is a cosmetic tooth alignment treatment designed to help straighten out the edges of and correct misaligned front teeth. This solution uses a simple, gentle and minimally invasive approach to correct a patients smile - targeting only the front teeth which most influence an individual's smile. Compared to conventional orthodontics, Cfast presents as a fast, effective and affordable targeted teeth straightening solution.

Cfast can correct:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Gummy smiles

What Cfast treatment options are there?
There are three Cfast treatment options available for you to choose from.

Labial Braces: This type of braces consists of tooth coloured wires and brackets which are placed onto the teeth and designed to gently move your front teeth back into alignment.

Lingual Braces: Lingual brackets are attached to the back of the front teeth and gentle pressure is applied bringing the front teeth back into alignment. Ideal option for patients concerned about the appearance of braces.

Anterior Realignment Trays: This treatment option uses computer aided design and manufacturing, in conjunction with state-of-the-art materials to produce a series of removable clear aligner trays. These trays are worn to gently realign the front teeth and are a great solution for patients who are unable to wear braces.

What are the benefits of choosing Cfast?
For suitable candidates, the Cfast teeth straightening solution offers a number of benefit including:
Fast - patient may see significant results in about 6 months (varies case to case)
Discreet - almost invisible wires and brackets
Affordable - shorter treatment time helps reduce the cost compared to conventional orthodontics
