Who does it work for?

Clearstep is the only system of clear positioners in the world that can treat young children and adults alike. The system has been designed to be infinitely flexible and can deal with the loss of baby teeth, the eruption of new teeth and pretty much any variable.

CLEARSTEP treats:

  • Crowding - teeth are too close together
  • Spacing - gaps between teeth
  • Overbite - teeth overlap too much vertically
  • Overjet - front teeth stick out
  • Underbite - lower teeth stick out/lower jaw too big
  • Crossbite - upper and lower teeth bite on the wrong side of each other
  • Openbite - your teeth do not meet when you bite
  • Misplaced midline - centre lines of upper and lower teeth don't align

So, why Clearstep?

Clearstep is wire free and does away with the need to bond metal onto the teeth. It is invisible, and removable, allowing you, the wearer, to eat that steak dinner, give that public speech, meet that client without embarrassment or discomfort. You simply remove, brush, floss, rinse and reinsert.

Discoloured or stained teeth?

Clearstep's specially formulated whitening gel can be used in conjunction with positioners to effectively remove stains and discolouration. This system really can give you that White Bright and Straight smile. You just have to apply the Hydrogen Peroxide gel twice a day for 30 mins and your teeth will brighten and lighten over a period of days.
