When many people think of clear braces, they think of Invisalign. Invisalign requires many mouth guard-type plastic aligners. While they are clear, they aren’t always an option for kids when they need serious dental work done.
Additionally, the plastic aligners are easily lost and very expensive to replace.
Alternatives to Clear Braces
Ceramic braces give another option for kids who want clear braces, but for whatever reason cannot have them. Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces except that the brackets and wires are tooth-colored so that they blend in with the teeth.
So, while they are not technically clear, they do have a less noticeable appearance.
One other option for an invisible look is lingual braces. Lingual braces are not visible to the naked eye because they are placed on the inside of the teeth. However, they are more expensive and more difficult to clean.
