Our Most Unnoticeable Braces Option

What are clear braces?
Clear braces work just like traditional metal braces, but are much less noticeable, making them the most popular braces choice among our adult and even some of our teen patients. Instead of metal, clear braces are made of a translucent ceramic material. Like metal braces, the ceramic braces are glued to the front surface of your teeth to act as handles for the wires to move the teeth. The tooth movement process is not magic, it’s biology. Your body and your cells are doing the work no matter if you’re wearing metal braces or clear braces. It’s simply a matter of esthetic preference which option is right for you.

Are clear braces right for me?

More adults are choosing to do orthodontic treatment today than at any other time before, which is increasing the demand for more esthetic treatment options than the ones that were available many years ago that brought into existence terms like “brace face” and “metal mouth”. In fact, 1 in 3 of Dr. Helm’s patients are adults. Clear braces are a great choice if your treatment plan requires the use of braces (versus Invisalign, an invisible, non-brace treatment option) due to more complex tooth movement needs or if you don’t want the responsibility of wearing Invisalign trays. Dr. Helm encourages his patients to choose whichever braces option will provide them the most confidence in your smile even throughout the treatment process. So have fun and make your treatment your own!
