# Clear Braces

Braces don’t have to be visible metal brackets and wires. In fact, many modern braces are transparent or tooth-colored to give patients with a more appealing, less conspicuous option.

## WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLEAR BRACES AND METAL BRACES?

Metal braces are quite similar to transparent braces, however transparent braces are considerably more visually appealing!

## WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES TO CLEAR BRACES?

• Appearance: Braces made of ceramic or translucent material are far more discrete than those made of metal. Clear and ceramic braces are an attractive alternative to standard metal braces for those who choose a less obtrusive solution.
• Results: Patients who choose ceramic or transparent braces instead of metal braces are likely to get the same results. Clear aligners, on the other hand, may not be as suitable when the condition is more challenging.
