Clear braces are an attractive option for teens and adults. Functioning like traditional metal braces, but with the subtlety of clear plastic aligners, clear braces are effective in treating even complex orthodontic conditions including crossbites, overbites, and underbites.

Benefits of Clear Braces

Clear braces are made of incredibly durable ceramic material. The ceramic used to make the brackets can also be color-matched to your teeth so that they are nearly invisible. Clear braces also offer near transparency in the archwire. The wire can be custom designed to match your teeth so that it blends in seamlessly. 

The discretion afforded by clear braces is one of the main reasons that adults often prefer them over metal braces. Like metal braces, clear braces are suitable for teenagers and adults and may help both to feel less self-conscious about smiling. Clear braces may also shorten your treatment time when compared to clear aligners.  Combining the rapid, proven technology of metal wire and bracket braces, with the aesthetic advantage of plastic aligners, clear braces offer the best of both worlds.
