If you’re looking for a straighter smile but you’re not too keen on the idea of having a lot of metal in your mouth, clear composite braces might be the perfect choice for you. Not all braces are made from stainless steel, and clear braces are significantly less noticeable. They still do a great job of creating beautiful, straight smiles, and aligning your bite.
Both metal and clear braces involve attaching brackets to the teeth and connecting those brackets on a wire. The difference is the types of materials used to create the brackets. Clear braces are created from composite materials that come in a variety of transparency levels and are a great option if you’re looking for something subtle but effective.
Note that the term clear braces is also sometimes used to refer to clear aligners, like Invisalign. Heroes Dental offers both types of clear braces, but the following information is in regards to clear composite braces, not Invisalign.
