At Family Orthodontics of Naples, we are pleased to offer clear braces as an effective, discreet option that can be used by any patient who qualifies for traditional braces. If you are interested in clear braces in the Naples, FL, area, schedule a consultation with our team today to help you determine if they are the right choice for you!
What are Clear Braces?
Clear braces work much like traditional braces, but instead of metal, they are made from transparent and tooth-colored ceramic materials to blend in with your smile and tooth structure. The braces are tinted to the color of your teeth, helping them to blend in naturally with your smile. Clear elastic bands can be used and even the archwire can be white in color to blend in more naturally.
Once the clear braces are placed, regular visits will be made with your orthodontist for adjustments to keep your smile moving in the right direction towards the smile you’ve always wanted. Treatment time varies depending on straightening needs and can be estimated during the initial visit.
Benefits of Clear Braces
Clear braces offer a similar treatment process to traditional metal braces, but with a few extra advantages:
- Blends in With Your Smile – Compared to traditional braces, clear braces allow you to see less of the braces and more of your smile during the treatment process.
- Feel Confident Throughout Treatment – With clear braces, you can feel more confident as you work towards your new smile.
- Works For Both Teens & Adults – Clear braces offer an alternative to traditional braces for both teens and adults looking for a more discreet way to achieve a straighter smile.
Clear Braces Compared to Invisalign®
Clear braces and Invisalign clear aligners both offer less-visible alternatives to traditional metal braces, but clear braces may be a more effective option for patients whose orthodontic goals can’t be achieved with Invisalign. And although Invisalign allows you to remove your aligners, with clear braces you won’t have to worry about forgetting to wear your aligners. During your consultation, the orthodontist will help you determine which treatment option will work better for your needs and goals.
