Esthetic braces are made from clear, ceramic material. Similar to traditional braces, esthetic braces straighten your teeth in the same way without bringing extra attention to your smile. Using brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into the right position, clear braces will align your teeth and give you a more confident smile. Clear braces are a great choice for teens or adults looking for a discreet way to straighten their teeth.

The Process for Esthetic Braces
One of the first steps is to match the color of the ceramic to your teeth. This helps them blend in and make them much less noticeable. Much like traditional braces, clear braces require regular visits for adjustments. During these visits, your orthodontist will ensure that straightening is on the right track. By making necessary adjustments, your orthodontist will determine which teeth will move and where they will move. As your teeth gradually shift into place, you will begin to see a more confident smile. Once treatment is complete, your teeth will be fully aligned and a custom retainer will be worn as your teeth adjust to their new position.
