Here at the practice of Paul S. Murphy DDS, MSD, Inc., we are proud to offer clear braces for our patients.
Many people, especially adults and older teenagers, don’t want to get the orthodontic treatment that they need because they don’t want to wear metal braces. However, you can still get the smile you deserve with the treatment alternatives that are available.
We offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces but still give patients the smile they deserve.
Clear braces are different than clear aligners. Clear aligners are plastic trays that you wear like you would wear a mouthguard. Clear braces are like metal braces, but they are almost invisible. The material we use is ceramic, which is translucent; this allows the braces to blend in with the natural color of your teeth.
Clear braces have many advantages. They are almost invisible, giving patients who do not want traditional braces another treatment alternative. This can lead to improved confidence, as patients can still get the care they deserve without worrying about what people are saying about their teeth.
Despite all of the advantages, there are some disadvantages too. They are more costly than traditional metal braces, though we are proud to offer payment plans so that you can get the care you deserve. They are also more brittle than metal braces, so proper care is necessary.
After a thorough examination, we will be happy to discuss your many options for improving your smile. We will go over the advantages and disadvantages of each so that we can determine the right course of treatment.
