Clear Braces: Effective Work Without the Metal Smile

Clear Braces

The orthodontic option referred to as “clear” braces aren’t necessarily clear in the plastic sense. Instead, these braces replace rubber with ceramic when adhering to the teeth. A small metal wire uses the ceramic material as leverage, adjusting teeth over time and creating a perfect smile that will last well into the future. Because of the unique way that this system works, the teeth are perfectly visible throughout the adjustment period. The thin wire is virtually unnoticeable at a distance, and pictures will hardly reveal the braces’ presence.

Additionally, clear braces are often less expensive than  methods using plastic aligners. Their use of metal makes them more affordable than plastic options currently on the market, and they’ll often work a bit more quickly when producing the desired results.

The Benefits of Clear Braces

When compared to other orthodontic options, clear ceramic braces have several advantages that can help you get that perfectly straight smile without compromising your appearance. Consult with your Carson City dentist to learn more about the benefits of clear braces, such as:

  • Clear ceramic bonding is less noticeable than metal brackets and rubber
  • Less expensive than invisible plastic braces
  • Only require one single installation
  • Can achieve successful results more quickly than invisible braces
  • Can be used to treat more severe misalignment and gaps

Clear braces are an excellent alternative option to the usual metal braces people know about for many reasons. They are far less conspicuous and offer patients a way to correct their teeth more discreetly. Clear braces are also less expensive than invisible braces, which utilize plastic trays to straighten teeth over time. Unlike invisible plastic braces, the durable metal wiring used with clear braces are able to treat severe alignment issues more readily.

Cost Comparison: A Middle Ground Between Metal and Plastic

Concept Image Metal Braces vs Clear Ceramic Braces

Metal braces are easily the most cost-effective option on the market because they use metal and rubber, two materials that are relatively inexpensive. Ceramic is a bit more costly, and that means a somewhat higher price tag for the convenience of a mostly invisible installation. Even so, the cost of ceramic braces is still less than invisible braces like InvisalignŸ, plastic options on the market and offers a great way to enhance a smile for the long-term. As with any type of corrective dental work, patients should make sure to speak with their dentist when they consider the available methods of smile correction and jaw alignment available to them.

Special Considerations About Clear Braces

For all of the benefits of a typical clear braces installation, there are certainly a few drawbacks that patients would be wise to consider before opting for this particular product. Perhaps the most notable is that patients will be subject to food restrictions for the duration of their braces’ installation. These restrictions are the same as they would be with a metal braces installation and for large the same reason. Simply put: It’s no fun to get food stuck in the installed metal parts, and it’s certainly no fun for stuck food to produce a cavity.

In addition to restrictions on certain foods, patients will notice a bit more pain resulting from the installation of clear braces than they would if they opted for plastic alternatives. That’s because, like regular metal braces, the metal must be installed into the mouth semi-permanently. Of note, however, is that the long-term pain and gum irritation is less noticeable with clear braces than metal options.

Ceramic braces can be great at blending in with an existing smile, but the nature of the ceramic bonding agent can cause teeth to stain more noticeably than metal options in some cases. With healthy discussion with your dentist, it will be easy to pick the best installation for cost, results, and invisibility.
