Clear Braces are a less noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces. Simply Smile Orthodontics provides several clear braces options. Your orthodontic needs, budget, and preference will determine which type of braces is right for you.
Simply Smile uses durable and transparent porcelain brackets that connect with white wires. Many adults and teenagers prefer these to traditional metal braces because they are much harder to see.
The brackets are strong enough to resist normal wear and tear and do not irritate the gums as much as their metal counterparts. However, clear braces are not for everyone. During a consultation, Dr. Michelle Palmer-Espanol will determine if they are right for you.
The revolutionary Damon System utilizes tieless braces and advanced archwires. The benefits of these clear braces include:
- The smooth and round brackets are more comfortable than traditional braces.
- They are virtually invisible.
- Research has proven that they move teeth faster than traditional braces.
- Damon® braces will improve your smile and facial structure.
- This system requires fewer dental appointments than traditional braces.
- hey are easier to clean than clear ceramic braces.
- Damon® braces will not affect your speech.
Although these are costlier than other options, many people find that they are well worth the extra expense.
If you are interested in clear braces, Invisalign® may be right for you. Instead of using brackets, they use clear and removable aligners. Aligners gradually move your teeth in small steps. Advanced 3d imaging is used to customize the apparatus to your mouth. Approximately every 2 weeks you will get a new aligner to begin the next stage of movement.
Only an orthodontist who is trained and certified in Align Technology can use Invisalign® to treat patients. These aligners are not intended for children and cannot be used to deal with every orthodontic issue. To find out if Invisalign® is right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Palmer-Espanol.
Teenagers are now able to utilize the advantages of Invisalign® with Invisalign Teen®. Many teenagers are concerned with their appearance and do not want their smile to be affected by metal brackets. The invisibility of this orthodontic option can provide teens with more confidence when interacting with peers and authority figures.
