“Quality is never an accident; it is the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
Are Clear Braces Invisible ?
Yes, clear braces are relatively invisible and do exist and are quite common.
Though they still can be seen as braces, you don’t see the metal colour of normal braces.
There are many adults that live their life in shame of their teeth, yet they refuse to even think about getting braces to fix them.
Most people believe that metal braces are still the only option available, but they have not been since the development of braces that are invisible several years ago.
Should I get clear braces or metal braces?
When you visit us, you’ll have the choice of three different types of braces; traditional metal braces, Damon braces (much smaller version of the metal braces) or clear braces that are relatively invisible.
They are several considerations to keep in mind.
These include the cost of clear braces, length of time you will have to wear them, appearance and effect.

that you have the best experience.
Ceramic Clear Braces
Ceramic clear braces are great for patients who want to feel good about the look of their teeth without having to worry about them in social situations.
The ceramic brackets of clear braces are created out of a tooth-coloured material to blend in from a distance.
They can be seen upon close inspection.
Ceramic braces that are relatively invisible, cost more than traditional braces, but only by a fairly small amount.
The disadvantage compared to metal braces is that the materials used in ceramic braces are a bit weaker than metal braces.
They do provide the same effect though there is just a larger chance that they will come loose.
Be sure to avoid foods that are chewy or hard in order to avoid this.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Invisalign is completely clear and unnoticeable even from a short distance away.
They are more comfortable than both metal braces and ceramic clear braces and do not break easily.
In fact, you don’t even have to worry about them when eating because you are able to remove them at will.
The expected downside to these clear braces that are invisible is that they cost the most out of all the options available.
People with severe misalignment, malocclusion, or overcrowding may not qualify for them as well.
An initial examination is needed to find out for sure.
Lingual braces is not necessarily invisible, but they do remain out of sight.
Unlike standard metal braces, these are inserted on the backside of the teeth instead of the front.
They can be a bit uncomfortable for the tongue at first, but after a week or two of wearing them you won’t even notice this problem anymore. Even though they are not clear braces, they are affordable braces that are invisible.
Costs vary for this choice based on the number of teeth we are treating.
What’s the cost of Clear Braces?
Depending on your case, the Clear braces cost and invisible braces cost can vary greatly between $3,500 to $12,500.
