Many of today’s braces are made from either clear or natural tooth colored materials to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to metal braces.
What is the difference between clear braces and clear aligners?
Clear braces are the same as metal braces except that they are clear! Clear braces are a less noticeable alternative to metal braces and provide patients with an equally effective treatment.
Clear aligners, or invisalign, are different from clear braces. Clear aligners are plastic trays that are precisely designed to fit into your mouth from a dental scan of your teeth. Clear aligners are great for patients requiring all types of 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 we will help you decide whether they are the right option for you

- Appearance: Clear braces are much less noticeable than metal braces. Clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative for patients seeking options other than metal braces.
