Clear Braces In Manhattan
When people are debating the various available options for straightening their teeth, they usually limit their consideration to metal braces and Invisalign. Many don’t know that there are other options available. In fact, wearing braces doesn’t always mean having to wear metal braces. One wonderful alternative that patients should consider is treatment with clear braces.
Clear braces work in exactly the same way that metal braces do. The difference is in the materials used to make the braces. Instead of using metal, clear braces are made of a special ceramic composite. This composite isn’t actually clear, however; clear braces get their name, because the ceramic brackets are specially colored to match the color of your unique teeth. The wires may be the usual metal wires, or they can be white wires that make your braces even less visible.
Why Choose Clear Braces?
Clear braces are far more discreet and aesthetically-pleasing than traditional metal braces. In addition, while previous generations of clear braces could sometimes get stained by coffee, tea, curry, and other similar foods, the newest technologies protect modern clear braces from staining. They will match the color of your teeth no matter what you eat.
In general, both metal and clear braces provide the most efficient orthodontic treatment. They can treat virtually any type of orthodontic problem and can do so with the greatest speed. With clear braces, you keep all the advantages of metal braces, while gaining the benefit of an aesthetic smile.
Clear braces are also less expensive than lingual braces (which are braces hidden behind the teeth). For those who find cost to be a concern but are still concerned about their appearance, clear braces can offer a good compromise. In our Upper West Side orthodontics office, Dr. Pliakas will be happy to show you how clear braces can meet your unique needs.
