Clear braces are a very attractive yet somewhat pricey option for patients of all ages. That’s why we are offering free clear upper braces this summer! Clear brackets are small, translucent ceramic braces that blend in with your natural tooth color. Aesthetically, they are more appealing and far less noticeable than traditional metal braces. So you can maintain a beautiful and confident smile throughout orthodontic treatment.

Clear Braces for Adults

Braces aren’t just for teenagers! Many adults feel self-conscious about getting braces later in life. If you are wishing for straighter teeth and a more confident smile, but you don’t like the idea of wearing metal braces as an adult, clear braces are a great alternative.

Other Alternatives to Metal Braces

Clear braces, or ceramic braces, are not the only available alternative to metal braces. If you really want to hide the fact that you have braces, you can also choose Invisalign or lingual braces (metal braces attached to the inside of the teeth). However, there are downsides to both of these. Invisalign aligners are more expensive, easy to lose, and require longer treatment compared to regular braces. Lingual braces are more expensive, difficult to clean, and more uncomfortable than traditional braces. Neither of these “invisible” options will work if you have severe dental problems. Ask your orthodontist which type of braces will work best for you.

Why Choose Clear Braces?

Clear braces are a good option for most patients, and they offer many advantages. They work just as well and as quickly as metal braces, they’re much less noticeable, and they’re often more comfortable. One potential disadvantage of clear braces is that they are usually more expensive than metal braces. This summer we would love the opportunity to give you all of the aesthetic advantages of clear braces without the added price by offering you our summer special!
