Clear Braces

clear braces

Hamer & Glassick Orthodontics offers clear/ceramic brackets which can be more aesthetically pleasing to some patients. These braces are comfortable and less visible than their metal counterparts; however, they are not recommended in all cases. Clear brackets are used for less complicated orthodontic cases because they tend to be less durable than metal.

Treatment with Clear Braces

Ceramic braces (or clear braces) are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. Ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
