Clear Braces Sprinfield QLD
Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets by 3M provide patients with an alternative solution to traditional metal braces. They offer all the benefits of the traditional orthodontic treatment with the added benefit of a more discreet looking system.
Clear braces are made up the same way as traditional braces with individual brackets on each tooth, arch wires running across the length of the smile and small rubber bands (or “O” rings) holding them in place. Clear braces get their name because the individual brackets in the Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Bracket system are created in a translucent colour. This gives a more discreet, clear alternative to the traditional, metal look.
Clear braces for adults
We have found that many of our adult patients are concerned with the aesthetics of traditional braces when looking into orthodontic treatment. If you never received orthodontic treatment when you were younger or have become uncomfortable with the look of your smile over the years, clear braces may be an option for you. Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets are an ideal solution for patients who need a more discreet orthodontic treatment option for their lifestyle.
You may consider this if you:
- Regularly have public speaking commitments
- Want a more professional look for work
- Have special events coming up during the time of treatment
- Are self-conscious or uncomfortable with the look of metal brackets
Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets are also offered to teenagers who feel self-conscious about the look of braces or who have special events such as their formal upcoming.
Benefits of clear braces:
The main benefit of clear braces is their translucent appearance for smile confidence. Instead of a prominent metal look – clear braces offer patients and inconspicuous look without losing the efficiency of traditional braces. Patients won’t need to be concerned with the obvious metal look of traditional braces and can smile with confidence.
Clarity™ ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets are also stain resistant, which means they will not lose their translucent colour easily. However, proper and careful at-home maintenance is still necessary for keeping the brackets clean. Stains can still occur without the proper care.
Clear braces have the same system as traditional braces – they just look a bit different. This means the treatment works in the similar time frame as traditional metal braces.
