Clear Braces & Invisalign
If you’re looking to straighten your teeth, you may wonder what your options are beyond traditional metal braces. Fortunately, there are two popular options: clear braces and Invisalign. But which one is right for you? This guide will explore the differences between clear braces and Invisalign so that you can make an informed decision.

Clear braces, also known as ceramic braces, are similar to traditional braces but with one key difference: the brackets are made of clear or tooth-colored materials instead of metal. This makes them less noticeable and more aesthetically pleasing, especially for adults who may feel self-conscious about wearing metal braces.
Clear braces work by using a system of brackets and wires to shift your teeth into the correct position gradually. They are generally worn for 1-3 years, depending on your situation.
Invisalign is a clear aligner system that uses a series of custom-made trays to shift your teeth into place gradually. The trays are made of a clear and safe plastic that is virtually invisible, so no one will even know you’re wearing them.
Invisalign trays are removable, so you can take them to eat, brush, and floss. This means there are no restrictions on what you can eat or drink, and you can easily maintain good oral hygiene throughout your treatment.
