Millions of people would like to experience better, straighter smiles. The problem is traditional orthodontic treatment places metal brackets and wires onto teeth. In our image-conscious society, this form of treatment is no longer desirable, even by teens. At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, we provide alternatives to conventional orthodontic treatment that produce satisfying results for people of all ages.

ClearCorrect a clear choice with most teens and adults seeking non-metal options for teeth straightening, we are excited to offer the ClearCorrect system of braces. This method is comfortable, effective, and, most of all, discreet. Using ClearCorrect, you can experience your most attractive smile without the need for cumbersome metal braces.

The process is simple, beginning with a consultation and evaluation that includes x-rays, photos, and impressions. If ClearCorrect is chosen as the most suitable orthodontic alternative, a prescription is sent along with molds of your teeth to a specialized laboratory, where clear, plastic aligner trays are computer crafted using innovative technology. One of the benefits of this particular system is that you are sent a set of aligners made to fit your teeth as they currently sit. This allows you to get used to wearing aligners without the added pressure to move teeth.
