Clarity ceramic braces are conventional bracket-and-wire braces that are more discreet. The ceramic material developed by 3M™ used for the brackets is very similar in color and appearance to your natural teeth. When patients want the brackets on their teeth to be a little less obvious, Clarity Ceramic Braces are a great option.
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.
If you’re investigating your options for orthodontic care, there’s never been a better time. Excellent orthodontic research and developments in special materials and manufacturing methods have it possible to produce ceramic brackets which are variable in color and which perform just as well as traditional metal brackets. Our goal is to provide the best resource for orthodontics in Thousand Oaks, Oxnard, and Carpinteria, and part of being the best resource is providing the most options and the most up to date treatments. If you’re considering any of our orthodontic treatments, we suggest that you schedule a free evaluation. Every patient and every case is unique. We’ll be able to assess your case, explain your options, and allow you to make an informed decision for your orthodontic treatment.
There’s a lot of options to consider. The best treatment plan for you is dependent on your unique case. Before you can start thinking about which option to choose, you should first schedule an evaluation. Our doctors will carefully evaluate your case, develop a treatment plan unique to you, and then provide you with device and pricing options.
