What Are Clear Braces?
Clear braces are a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal braces. They are a common option for adult braces as they are less visible, so many people feel less self-conscious about wearing them. They work the same way as regular braces, and can correct all the same orthodontic problems like crooked or crowded teeth, large gaps, overbites and under bites. This makes them a great solution for people with more serious issues that cannot be corrected by other cosmetic options like Invisalign clear aligners.
This system uses modern technology to efficiently and comfortably guide your teeth into their proper alignment. Many people find them more comfortable than traditional metal braces as they are made from a clear ceramic material which can be smoother on the gums. Best of all the clear material makes them virtually invisible, so you they don’t get in the way of you living your day to day life.
Benefits of Clear Dental Braces
Clear dental braces provide all the same benefits of traditional braces, with the added bonus of being very discreet. Like regular braces, they will straighten crooked teeth, shift the alignment of out-of-place teeth, and push overbites into their proper position, which all helps to improve the appearance of your smile. The benefits go beyond just appearance, as they will also help to improve your overall oral hygiene. Teeth that are correctly aligned are a lot easier to brush and floss between, which reduces your chances of developing issues like tooth decay and gum disease. You will find it a lot easier to maintain your oral health, and so are likely to face fewer issues in the future.

What Our Patients Say
Why Choose Getting Ceramic Braces
Clear ceramic braces are a great option if you want to quickly and efficiently correct your crooked, crowded, gaped, or misaligned teeth. Unlike other cosmetic options such as Invisalign clear retainers, clear ceramic braces can treat a wider range of dental problems, and often do so in a much shorter time. This is because they fasten directly to the teeth, and are periodically tightened to help guide your teeth into their correct position. While this is a more expensive option compared to traditional braces, their smaller rounded brackets and ceramic material means that they are less likely to cause discomfort or irritate your gums. This makes them more comfortable to wear, with the added bonus that most people will hardly notice you are wearing them.
How ceramic Braces are Put On
The procedure for applying clear ceramic braces is very similar to regular braces. First, we will thoroughly clean and dry your teeth to prepare the surface. Next, bonding glue is applied to your teeth and attach the ceramic brackets. Some people find that the glue tastes unpleasant, but it is harmless. Lastly, the archwire, which is the wire that connects your teeth, is placed in the brackets and it is all secured in place with elastic bands. This process can take between 1 – 2 hours depending on the patient. While you may feel some discomfort at some stages during the treatment, overall you should not feel any pain. Our orthodontists do everything they can do make sure you feel comfortable and secure the entire time.
