Clear Braces

About Clear Braces in Santa Clara, CA

Whether you're an adult or a teen, we all want to look our best at all times. Changing the way your teeth are structured takes time and there are now ways to keep you looking your best during this period. Clear braces or ceramic braces are translucent. This new technology is available for most cases. The great benefit of these braces is that you won't have to have that metallic look. In addition, clear braces are specifically designed so that they won't stain or wear over time. That’s why Dr. Lotfi of Santa Clara Orthodontics offers clear braces. Learn more about what exactly clear braces, sometimes called ceramic braces, are and why they might be right for you.

What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces function similarly to traditional braces. They use brackets and wires to move your teeth into the desired positions. The big difference is that clear braces are practically invisible. (Hence the name!) The metal brackets are replaced with clear ceramic ones. This offers you a subtle alternative to noticeable metal brackets. It’s great for patients who might be self-conscious about having braces.

The Benefits of Clear Braces

Clear braces are, well, clear. It’s a great new technology that’s available for almost every client! Many people opt for clear aligners or Invisalign when choosing braces. They don’t want their orthodontic journey visible. Clear braces are another great option along this line. They give you the invisibility you crave without sacrificing treatment time. Clear braces will move your teeth in 18-36 months while Invisalign often takes much longer. Choosing clear braces ends up saving you both time and money.

As mentioned, many choose ceramic braces for aesthetic reasons. That’s why you’ll be happy to know that ceramic braces won’t stain or wear over time. Broken brackets and wires are a thing of the past with this orthodontic treatment.

Overbites and Malocclusion

Many patients find out the hard way that they aren’t eligible for clear aligners. They most likely have a misalignment or malocclusion that needs stronger intervention. However, this doesn’t mean they have to subject themselves to traditional braces. Clear braces to the rescue! If you have problems with your bite, clear braces can help. They’ll correct problems with your bite or misalignments so your smile is picture-perfect.

Clear Braces: What's Stopping You?

In summary, clear braces are a great option offered to you by our dental team. Some patients are put off by the cost, but the great results and faster treatment time compared to clear aligners make clear braces a great investment. Having a straight smile is great for your self-confidence and your health. Patients with straight teeth struggle less with keeping their smiles healthy and clean. That means fewer trips to the dentist for cavities and root canals. Say goodbye to missing work or school for pesky appointments.
