Clear braces are similar to metal braces but are made of white material and are virtually undetectable! They bond to the front of the tooth and are connected by a wire. These braces are used mostly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. They do require a little more attention, which is why our trained doctors will let you know if they are the right options for you!
What is the difference between Clear Braces and Metal Braces?
The main difference between clear and metal braces is that clear braces is a more esthetic treatment option compared to metal braces. Dr Chong is proud to offer a completely clear option – not only are the brackets clear but the wires we use are clear as well!
Is Clear Braces more efficient than metal braces?
Clear braces and metal braces are equally efficient in moving your teeth. Clear braces is a great option for patients who want a less visible option to straighten their teeth and who wants a “fixed” option (clear braces cannot be removed by the patient).
