Straighten Your Smile Discreetly
Clear braces are made with tooth-colored ceramic material to blend in with your smile and deliver a less noticeable—but effective—orthodontic treatment. Clear braces are great for adults who want an alternative to traditional metal brackets, but teenagers can get clear braces as well.
Clear braces use the same method as traditional metal braces to straighten your teeth. Your orthodontist will attach ceramic, tooth-colored brackets to your teeth, then place a wire across the brackets and secure them with clear elastics. At visits to the clinic every 4-6 weeks, your orthodontist will use a series of different wires, rubber bands, and other methods to gradually straighten your teeth with steady pressure.
Clear Braces vs. Traditional Metal Braces
While the method of straightening teeth is the same, the cost difference between clear braces and traditional metal braces can be up to $2,000. The amount depends on your dental insurance and your individual case. When you come in for your orthodontic consultation, we’ll evaluate your case, discuss available treatment options, and present the treatment cost for all options. We’ll work with you each step of the way to ensure you feel comfortable with the orthodontic treatment chosen and the investment that goes along with it.
