What Are Clear Braces? 

Like traditional metal braces, clear braces consist of brackets that are bonded to the teeth and wires that run through those brackets. The tightening of these wires exerts resistance that straightens teeth over time. 

The difference with clear braces is that they are made of ceramic, while traditional braces are made from stainless steel. The ceramic brackets are the same color as your teeth—making them “invisible” in most social situations and in photographs. Clear braces are also generally smaller than metal braces. 

Advantages of clear braces include: 

  • Aesthetic appeal—this may be the top reason people choose clear braces.  
  • Confidence—cosmetic concerns should not stop anyone from attaining the perfect smile. The option of clear braces has given many people the confidence they need to go ahead and obtain the orthodontic treatment they need. 
  • Comfort—clear braces are generally smaller than traditional metal braces, causing less irritation to the cheeks and gums. 

Clear ceramic braces can treat any orthodontic issue metal braces can, including crooked teeth, bite misalignments and spacing problems. The fact that they can do this while remaining barely noticeable has made them a popular choice for people who want the perfect smile—without drawing attention to the treatment that is making that smile possible! 

Clear Aligners 

Invisible aligners, also known as clear aligners, are another alternative for people seeking a subtle solution for improving their teeth. Invisible aligners are formed from plastic or acrylic and molded to fit over the teeth. If your orthodontic needs are relatively mild, clear aligners may be a viable alternative to braces. We can help you explore all of the options available to you.
