Having braces doesn’t necessarily require highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today’s braces are made from either clear or natural tooth-colored materials to provide you with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.
What is the difference between clear braces and clear aligners?
Clear braces are the same as metal braces, except they are clear! Clear braces are a less noticeable alternative to metal braces and provide patients with an equally effective treatment.
Clear aligners are different from clear braces. Clear aligners are a series of custom trays that are designed to fit into your mouth and move your teeth closer and closer to an ideal position with each new tray. Clear aligners are great for patients requiring minor orthodontic treatment.
What are the advantages to clear braces?
As with any orthodontic treatment, it is important to choose the right option for your needs and lifestyle. Clear braces are a great alternative to metal braces, and Dr. Moore will help you determine whether they are the right treatment for you.
Advantages to clear braces
- Appearance: Ceramic/clear braces are much less noticeable than metal braces. Ceramic/Clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative for patients who seek options other than metal braces.
- Confidence: Many patients who choose ceramic/clear braces feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment, especially knowing that people are focusing on their smile rather than their braces.
