Clear Braces - The Aesthetic Advantage
Clear braces, also known as invisible braces, are a type that blends in with the natural appearance of the teeth. In the past, it was a common sight to see metal rings or bands around the teeth. However, bonding techniques have now advanced and allowed for less metallic looking braces for people who need them.
Metal braces were used because they were durable and not prone to damage, but they lacked in the aesthetic department. Even now, ceramic braces are considered to be less durable as compared to metal ones but they have been improved in the last 10 to 15 years. Plastic braces and ceramic braces were known for being vulnerable to stains and color change but technology has allowed for better versions.
Clear braces are not only invisible but feel lighter. They don’t disrupt the natural appearance of the teeth and work efficiently.
Benefits of Clear Braces
With clear braces, you don’t have to feel shy about showing off your smile. They are highly invisible so you can talk and smile naturally. They are so efficiently designed that most people won’t even notice you wearing them.
Wearing braces is not easy. While they will help you get better teeth in the long the run, it is still difficult to manage during the process. For example, removing them to eat or taking care of oral hygiene can become a chore. In this matter, clear braces are quite effective. They are easy to remove whenever you like. Moreover, they have no wires so food does not get stuck in them. It is easier to brush and floss to maintain oral hygiene.

The treatment does not involve one set of aligners. The braces will come in different sets. You will wear the different sets as your progress through the treatment.
