Clear braces are another option for those who want straighter teeth but would like to minimize the appearance of metal on their teeth for a more natural appearance during their orthodontic treatment.
Clear braces are made out of a translucent polycrystalline ceramic that blends with the color of your teeth! It works the same way as traditional braces just less noticeable.
Clear braces work in the same way that metal braces work. Both Clear & Metal Braces use constant, gentle pressure, which over time, move teeth into their proper positions.
While Ceramic braces offer an aesthetic advantage, they are more brittle and less resilient to force than metal braces – thus they are more prone to fracture with excess force from chewing or function. In certain patients with excessively deep bites or long cusps on opposing teeth, ceramic braces are not recommended.
