People like to look good while they’re looking good! That’s why we only use clear braces and tooth-colored materials to provide our patients with a nearly invisible alternative to traditional metal braces ... and at no additional cost! Many patients even choose to put “colors” on our clear braces to create a bright, neon smile :)
What is the difference between clear braces and clear aligners?
Clear braces are the same as traditional metal braces except that they are clear! Clear braces are a less-noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces, yet they provide patients with an equally effective treatment.
Clear aligners are different from clear braces. Clear aligners are pieces of hard plastic that are designed to fit into your mouth like a mouthguard. Clear aligners are great for patients who require minor orthodontic treatment.
What are the advantages to clear braces?
- Appearance: Clear braces are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces, and they offer an aesthetic alternative for patients who seek options other than traditional metal braces.
- Cost: Gregg Orthodontics offers clear braces for the same cost as traditional metal braces. This is different from many other practices, which generally charge a higher fee for this type of treatment.
Confidence: Many patients who choose ceramic or clear braces feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment, especially knowing that people are focusing on their smiles rather than their braces.
Neon Smile: Putting “colored ties” on your clear braces gives you a whole new look! We call it a neon smile, and the colors will give you an amazing “pop”!
