What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces function similarly to traditional metal braces but with a less visible appearance. Made of translucent ceramic, they seamlessly blend with the natural color of your teeth, offering an almost invisible orthodontic treatment.

Just like metal braces, they use brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into their perfect spots. But with the discreet power of clear braces, you can smile with confidence all the way through your treatment.

Comparing Clear & Metal Braces

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, every option has strengths and weaknesses. Even when the different options are both braces! Let’s take a look at the differences between these two options.


While metal braces are easily noticeable, clear braces offer a subtle alternative. The translucent ceramic brackets blend in with your teeth and allow for a more natural look that appeals to professionals and adults seeking a low-profile solution.

Strength & Durability

Metal braces are robust and can withstand considerable wear. Clear braces, made of ceramic, are also durable but may require slightly more care to prevent potential damage.

Treatment Duration

Both types of braces work efficiently to correct dental misalignments. However, because metal brackets can handle more pressure than clear braces, you may see slightly faster results in some cases.


Clear braces tend to be a bit pricier than their metal counterparts, reflecting their benefits and the material costs.


Both clear and metal braces offer fun customization with colorful elastics. Clear braces prioritize discretion, but they can really pop if you want them to! Usually, we use clear elastics, but feel free to add color and spice things up.

Benefits of Clear Braces

Clear braces combine the efficiency of traditional braces with the discretion of invisible aligners. Let’s dive into the numerous advantages ceramic braces can bring to your orthodontic journey:

Discreet Design

The primary appeal of clear braces is their nearly invisible design. This means you can undergo orthodontic treatment without noticeable metal brackets, making it an ideal choice for adults and teens who might be self-conscious about wearing braces or just need a more discreet option for their lifestyle.

Effective & Versatile

Clear braces are all about convenience. They don't stain easily, and their brackets are resistant to discoloration. With regular cleaning, they remain as discreet as the day they were placed, allowing for a hassle-free treatment period.


Durable Material

Although they might seem delicate due to their transparent nature, clear braces are made of robust ceramic materials. These braces withstand the pressures of orthodontic adjustments, ensuring they remain intact and functional throughout the treatment.

Comfortable Experience

The smooth texture of clear braces often makes them more comfortable than their metal counterparts. Without sharp edges, they reduce the potential for mouth sores and provide a more pleasant experience during the adjustment period.

Customization Options

For those who wish to add a splash of personality, clear braces can be paired with colored elastics. This offers a touch of fun while maintaining the primary benefit of discretion.

Are Clear Braces Right for You?

Considering a discrete way to straighten your smile? Clear braces might be your answer.

Unlike traditional metal braces, clear braces offer a nearly invisible solution to correct orthodontic issues, but they're not for everyone. Let's help you determine if they're the right fit for you.

Consult with an Expert

The first step is to consult with an experienced orthodontist. Dr. Peluso or Dr. Savage can assess the complexity of your orthodontic issue, your lifestyle, and your smile goals to advise you on the treatment that best fits your needs.

Factors to Consider

Clear braces are great if you’re looking for a more discreet treatment option. They‘re perfect for professionals, adults returning to orthodontic care, or anyone conscious about their appearance during the treatment phase.

However, they might not be the best choice for extremely complex orthodontic issues. Don’t worry—Dr. Peluso or Dr. Savage will always work with you to find the perfect option.
