The Benefits Of Clear Braces Vs. Metal

Many people need braces to straighten or restore their smile. However, the days of only metal braces are long gone. Thanks to advances in orthodontic technology, we proudly provide more discreet, comfortable options for our patients—like clear braces in Soda Springs and Blackfoot, Idaho

Whatever your age, you don’t have to let braces get in the way of enjoying your phase of life to the fullest. Here are a few of the benefits clear braces can offer you. 

Clear Braces Are Less Noticeable

Clear braces are the same shape as traditional metal braces, but with a key difference—the brackets are clear and much smaller. Your braces can be much more discreet, even nearly invisible with an effective alternative to metal braces. You can also choose colored wire like silver or white so your clear braces blend even more seamlessly with your smile. 

Clear Braces Are Highly Durable

The good news is, clear braces are just as tough as metal ones. The ceramic material combined with its design and application technique ensure the highest quality so the last thing you’ll have to worry about is your braces staying on your teeth.

Clear Braces Won’t Damage Your Teeth

You can rest assured that clear braces won’t damage or demineralize the enamel of your teeth. Clear braces are attached using a specially formulated adhesive so you can trust they’re of the highest quality without worrying about the surfaces of your teeth. The application technique of clear braces also makes them easy to remove when your treatment is finished. 

Clear Braces Can Straighten Teeth Faster Than Invisalign

Invisalign is the perfect option for many patients. However, clear braces may work faster because they remain on your teeth constantly rather than being taken in and out throughout the day.

Clear Braces Are More Comfortable Than Metal

Another benefit is that clear braces are one of the most comfortable options for straightening teeth. The brackets are smaller and more round, and less likely to irritate your gums compared to metal. 

Clear Braces Resist Stains

When clear braces first came out a few decades ago, they were made of plastic that could stain and discolor easily. The good news is, technological advances now make it possible to use ceramic material for clear braces that are less prone to discoloration.
