What are Clear Braces?

Clear braces are like conventional metal braces but with clear bracket. These bracket are commonly made from clear materials such as ceramic and sapphire, making them less visible on your teeth than metal braces.

Clear braces use the same mechanism of pressure application as their metal counterparts, providing patients with an equally efficient orthodontic treatment. However, the fact that they are less visible alone makes them a more alluring option for adult patients and many teenagers who have cosmetic concerns.

How do Clear Braces look and feel?

Being visually less prominent, clear braces help you retain your smile and go about your normal duties without having self-concerns. You don’t have to worry about everyone noticing immediately that you have some braces on. These braces feel more comfortable when fitted by our professional orthodontists. Plus, imagining that your braces are hardly visible to the outside world gives you the confidence to smile, laugh, and go on with your duties just normally. Ceramic braces can even be customized and fitted with colored brackets to make them look more appealing.

Difference between Clear Braces and Metal Braces

The major difference between these two types of braces is appearance. While metal braces are visible and often affect a patient’s smile, clear and ceramic braces are much less noticeable and offer a great aesthetic alternative. Metal braces are however much more durable than the clear ones because they are made of steel. Historically, the clear braces were faced with many problems and were prone to breakage or damage of the tooth upon removal. However, technology has helped on this and such cases are virtually obsolete. Clear braces are also slightly more expensive than the metal braces because of the materials used as well as additional costs of maintenance.
