Have you considered orthodontic treatment but want to avoid unsightly metal brackets? Would you like to keep your appearance neat while undergoing treatment? Are you afraid of being considered a “metal mouth”? We can help. Our clear braces alternatives can help you get the orthodontic care you need while still maintaining your appearance. Below you will find information on our clear ceramic braces, as well as Invisalign.
Visually Pleasing Clear Ceramic Braces
What are ceramic braces? If you are worried about your braces looking unsightly, or just want to undergo treatment a little more discreetly, you should consider clear ceramic braces. Our ceramic braces are comprised of brackets that are made of a clear material, allowing the natural color of your teeth to shine through. This eliminates the look of bulky metal brackets usually used for braces. Our patients love the clean look of these brackets!
Our clear ceramic braces still need to be used in combination with regular metal wires in order to straighten your teeth. However, when used with clear ligatures (the small rubber bands that secures the wire into the bracket), the only colored piece of equipment in your mouth is the wire – and it is not very noticeable on its own. Even when used with metal wires, our clear ceramic braces are a great option for patients who want less attention-grabbing orthodontic care.
Invisalign Short-Term Orthodontics
If you would rather avoid metal pieces altogether, we do offer Invisalign short-term orthodontics. Invisalign clear aligners are made up of a clear plastic material that is comfortable and nearly invisible in your mouth. They are great for those who want truly discreet treatment. However, Invisalign is not for everyone. Invisalign works for those who have only mildly crooked teeth and no major bite issues or other orthodontic problems. For more complicated cases, you will want to consider ceramic braces, as Invisalign will not be a viable option.
