Clear braces work in the same way as metal braces, but they are made of a clear material that makes it difficult to tell you’re wearing braces at all.
Dr. Bridgham and Dr. Barr understand that some people, especially adults, are hesitant to start orthodontic treatment because of the appearance of braces. That’s why we offer clear braces for optimal aesthetics for all our patients at no additional charge. 3M Clarity Advanced braces are a revolutionary leap forward in orthodontic ceramic braces. Patients have the ultimate in aesthetic brackets with a comfortable, low-profile design. These braces make use of ultra-small translucent brackets that are made of an innovative, new ceramic material for a brilliantly clear appearance and smooth, comfortable feel.
The Clarity Advanced braces are translucent and designed to blend in with one’s natural tooth color. The durable brackets are created using an injection molded process so the brackets are resistant to staining and discoloration throughout the treatment. We place special tooth colored ligatures around the brackets that do not stain to allow many weeks to pass without discoloration.
We also offer many color choices to allow the braces to “pop” with color. In addition to the aesthetic brackets, we also use tooth-colored wires which allow the braces and wires to blend in with the teeth.
When these braces are worn, there’s no need to hide behind a closed-lip smile. Clarity Advanced ceramic braces give you the confidence you need to show off your smile both during and after treatment!
