Clear Braces Q & A

What are clear braces?

Clear braces, also known as invisible braces, are an alternative for treating crooked teeth and creating a perfect, straight smile. Clear braces are different from traditional wire and bracket braces because wire and bracket braces straighten teeth by using extremely noticeable metal brackets.

Clear braces are ceramic brackets with clear plastic bands that straighten teeth by holding them in a corrected position, and they’re considered more appealing than metal hardware to most people.

What are clear braces made of?

Clear braces are made of a durable clear or white ceramic. The material is comfortable against your teeth and gums, making continuous use more pleasant. The clear material isn’t as noticeable, if at all. Dr. Malibiran can explain what you need to get started with your personalized clear braces.

How long do I need to wear clear braces?

Crooked, crowded, or extra space in between teeth can all be corrected. Depending on how many teeth need to be corrected and how much of a correction is needed for each tooth, you may need to wear clear braces for up to two years. Speak with Dr. Malibiran about your needs and she can give you an expertly designed treatment plan that gives you more detail about the length of time you need to wear clear braces.

How do I know if I should wear clear braces?

You may notice imperfections in your smile when you look in the mirror and decide you want clear braces, but more than likely, your dentist suggests you need braces after a regular exam or cleaning. Dr. Malibiran is better trained to notice if your teeth are too close together, too far apart, or have grown in crooked.

Clear braces are a great choice for adults and teenagers who still want to smile confidently in a professional and academic setting, and who prefer to have their smiles corrected without interfering completely in their social life.

Getting a great smile to show off isn’t as complicated as it used to be. Wearing clear braces gives you the confidence of not wearing traditional braces while still correcting your tooth alignment.
