Clear Braces

Clear Braces

Having braces doesn’t necessarily require highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, 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 traditional braces.

Clear ceramic braces provide orthodontic treatment more discreetly than traditional braces. Perfect for adults who prefer to keep their orthodontic care private, clear bracket braces blend right in with your teeth. They work just as well as traditional braces and provide many aesthetic benefits for our patients in Fort Worth and Crowley, TX.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of 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 traditional metal braces and your orthodontist will help you determine whether they are the right treatment for you.

Advantages to clear braces:

  • Appearance: Ceramic braces and clear braces are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Clear and ceramic braces offer an aesthetic alternative for patients seeking options other than traditional metal braces.
  • Confidence: Many patients who choose ceramic or clear braces feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment, especially knowing that people are focusing on their smiles rather than their braces.

Disadvantages to clear braces:

  • Cost: Ceramic and clear braces may cost more than traditional metal braces. Your orthodontist may offer convenient payment plans to help control the costs of your treatment. Be sure to talk to your orthodontist about all of your financial options.
  • Discoloration: The clear elastic ties used with clear and ceramic braces may become slightly discolored when you drink tea, coffee, or wine, and eat certain foods or smoke. Ask your orthodontist about how you can keep your braces looking their best.
  • Treatment Time: Orthodontic treatment with clear or ceramic braces may take longer than with traditional metal braces. If you don’t mind investing a little more time in your smile, then talk to your orthodontist to find out how long your treatment time will be with clear or ceramic braces.

Are You a Good Fit for Ceramic Braces? 

Clear dental braces make an excellent choice for people who want their treatment to look less noticeable to others. Adults often want braces that others can’t see. They may feel self-conscious about getting their teeth fixed, and clear braces provide them a way to do it without others knowing. 

Teens may also like having clear ceramic braces that others won’t notice. Teens are often self-conscious during this time of their lives and wearing traditional braces that others can see may feel like another way they stand out from their peers. Clear braces are less conspicuous and help teens fit in. 

Suitable candidates must be responsible. Clear bracket braces demand more careful brushing and flossing than traditional braces, as the brackets can become discolored.

Building a Custom Clear Braces Treatment Plan

Mik Ortho can create a custom clear braces treatment plan to address your orthodontic needs. We work with you to identify what you need from your braces and develop a plan tailored to you. The plan’s length and goals differ for each of our patients in Fort Worth and Crowley, TX.

We keep you informed throughout the process. You’ll know approximately how long you need your braces and any next steps. We adjust the wire on the braces to move the teeth and you’ll see the results quickly. Each person is different, and we keep your unique needs in mind as we move through treatment.

How Much Ceramic Braces Cost

Ceramic braces cost about the same amount as Invisalign and a bit more than traditional braces. Of course, many factors go into the cost of braces, including treatment plan length and how your mouth responds to treatment.

Costs may vary depending on these factors, so the best way to determine your cost is to consult with us about our recommendations and pricing. We’ll walk you through the costs and how we arrived at that number for your treatment.
