Clear Braces - Kingwood, TX
Have you considered clear braces? Maybe you should -
If you've ever felt embarrassed by your smile or you’ve done everything in your power to hide your teeth, the idea of adding braces into the mix might be unappealing.
Even though you know wearing braces would be better for you and your teeth in the long run, maybe you don't like the idea of a mouth full of metal.
That's where clear braces come in, giving you straighter teeth with none of the self-consciousness that usually comes from wearing traditional metal braces.

What Are Clear Braces & How Do They Compare to Clear Aligners?
Clear braces (also called clear bracket braces) are transparent braces that work in the same way as traditional metal braces. Both metal and clear braces (usually ceramic) use brackets and wires to straighten your teeth over time. The main difference is that the materials dentists use in clear bracket braces are far less noticeable than traditional braces.
Clear aligners, also called invisible braces, look similar to a retainer or mouthguard and utilize custom-molded aligner trays to gently shift the position of your teeth until satisfaction is achieved.
Benefits of Clear Bracket Braces for Teeth Straightening
Many of our Kingwood clients prefer clear bracket braces over other teeth-straightening options. These clear braces offer many benefits:
- As effective as metal braces
- More comfortable than traditional braces
- Better suited than aligners for teeth that need more work
- Less noticeable than metal bracket braces
- More gentle on enamel than metal bracket braces
If a patient is self-conscious about the teeth straightening process, clear braces can help them feel more confident as they do the work necessary for straighter teeth. Clear braces are perfect for adults and older children who are concerned about their appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for Clear Bracket Braces?
Clear bracket braces are excellent teeth-straightening tools, especially for adults who didn't have the option of straightening their teeth until now. Every person and mouth is different, though, so it's always a good idea to go over your options with an experienced orthodontist before deciding on the best course of action.
