Clear Braces: Are They The Very Clear Choice For You?

When you think of clear braces, what do you envision? If you’re imagining clear brackets with barely-seen wires, we remind you that there’s something else you have access to that goes by the same moniker! In this case, we are talking about clear aligner trays. They’re not going to mean that you need to wear a smile alignment system bonded to your teeth. Instead, just like it sounds, you’ll have very-difficult-to-see, clear, plastic trays that are going to rest closely over your smile! The question is: Are they the clear choice for you? Allow our Virginia Beach, VA practice to speak to this!

Gather Candidacy Info With Us

To get started, you probably wonder whether clear braces are for you! We often find that in terms of feeling like this system, which is known as Invisalign treatment, is going to work for patients, there’s some confusion. The ease and the esthetic value causes people to guess that these trays are only for individuals with extremely minor concerns. The truth, however? It’s for almost everyone! Remember, you’ll need to come in for a dental visit with us, so we can determine whether trays are a good choice for aligning your grin. In general, though, they work for overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, overcrowded teeth, spaced teeth, and more!

Consider The Esthetic Benefits

About those esthetic benefits we mentioned, they’re called “clear braces” because the trays are clear. They’re going to sit closely over your teeth. As long as you care for them and for your smile, they’ll remain clear. What you can expect, then, is for them to look almost invisible to yourself when you glance in the mirror and to others when they see you!

Consider Even More Benefits!

Good news from our team: In addition to the fact that wearing clear braces makes it so you still have your smile looking like its usual self, there are additional benefits to consider, such as:

  • They’re comfortable and won’t cause any friction or discomfort, which is not true for brackets and wires
  • They are removable, so you will wear your trays for 20 to 22 hours every day but you can still enjoy meals and snacks, as well as effective and easy dental hygiene!
  • You won’t need to see us quite as often as you would if you were wearing traditional braces
