Mostly Transparent Like Invisalign
Clarity ceramic braces are conventional bracket-and-wire braces that are more discreet and difficult to notice because the ceramic material used for the brackets is very similar in color and appearance to your natural teeth. While there are other orthodontic devices which are mostly transparent like Invisalign, they can’t necessarily correct moderate to severe orthodontic conditions with the effectiveness of bracket-and-wire braces systems. For patients requiring more intensive treatments, but still desiring an increased level of visual discretion, Clarity Ceramic Braces are a great option. Invisalign is a fantastic system for the right case, but the nature of orthodontics is such that without attaching actual brackets to teeth, the amount of tooth movement and the direction of tooth movement is limited in comparison. When patient’s cases aren’t a good match, but they want the brackets on their teeth to be a little less obvious, Clarity Ceramic Braces are a good option.
