People make a lot of New Year’s resolutions. From dramatic weight loss plans to spending more time with family to paying off debts. Whatever your New Year’s resolution, remember, a beautiful smile goes with everything. According to studies conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, people found a beautiful smile to be an indicator of confidence, and were most likely to remember smiles than any other part of a first impression. Researchers at UC Berkley think that smiling more often allows people to live longer, happier lives, and an employment survey showed people with an attractive smile were more likely to get hired or promoted. Maybe 2016 is your year to shine with a picture-perfect smile from the team at Premier Family Dental in Waco.

Those patients often experience a decline in oral health due in part to how challenging it is to care for teeth with braces.

If you missed the chance to wear traditional braces with metal brackets and wires when you were a kid, then you may still be longing for a smile with beautiful straight teeth. However now, as an adult, you may not be game for the appearance or the hassle—the gum and cheek irritation, the frequent appointments to adjust your braces—that traditional braces require. So, consider ClearCorrect from Premier Family Dental in Waco, TX.
As the name suggests, ClearCorrect straightens your teeth—clearly. And we mean that literally. ClearCorrect uses a series of clear plastic aligners that gradually move your teeth into their proper alignment. There are no metal brackets and no metal wires to bother you or for others to see.
The ClearCorrect Process
Dr. Rick Cofer and his team will take exact measurements of your teeth, as well as photographs, x-rays and molded impressions. These are then sent to the ClearCorrect lab where your custom designed aligners are fabricated. They’ll arrive in our office as a series of sets. All you do is wear each set for the predetermined amount of time before moving on to the next. As you progress through you sets, you’ll begin to see a change in the appearance of your teeth. Gradually your smile will become straighter and straighter. Of course, Dr. Cofer will need to see you in the office periodically to make sure you’re progressing as planned.
The Benefits of ClearCorrect
Wearing clear braces, Waco residents enjoy a number of benefits:
- Braces that are completely inconspicuous
- No uncomfortable and distracting metal wires or broken brackets
- Removable aligners, so you can eat what you want and brush and floss your teeth as usual
- A treatment time that is typically completed in 12 to 18 months

If you have a misaligned or gapped smile, you could find it difficult to be proud of the way you look overall. You may have considered straightening your smile, but the thought of going through life with uncomfortable wires and brackets associated with traditional braces could have turned you away. Fortunately, we live in an age where dental technology is always advancing, and having an aligned smile can be done simply and conveniently! Dr. Rick Cofer is able to offer ClearCorrect Braces to his patients, providing the discreet orthodontic care they deserve.
One of the amazing things about ClearCorrect is that the trays sit clearly on your smile, making it look like you have nothing on your smile at all! ClearCorrect works through a cycle of straightening trays, all custom made to fit your smile only. Each tray is indicative of a different stage of your straightening treatment. After you wear a tray for a certain amount of time, simply remove it and apply the next one in the set! Because each tray is made to fit you, your orthodontic treatment is as personalized as ever, promising amazing results!
One reason why ClearCorrect is wonderful is because you are not restricted to a certain diet while wearing them. With traditional braces, there are certain foods and drinks you cannot enjoy, whereas with ClearCorrect, you have total freedom. Also, you are able to have better oral health with ClearCorrect, as any time you have to floss, drink, brush, or eat, simply remove and reapply the tray when necessary. If you would like Dr. Cofer’s help in aligning your smile using ClearCorrect, contact our office today!
