The Clear Choice for
3M™ Clarity ceramic braces from Griffin & Errera Orthodontics give another great option for teens and adults who don’t want the appearance of metal braces. Made from the highest-grade ceramic materials, clarity braces blend perfectly with your teeth.
3M™ Clarity Ceramic Brackets
Also known as tooth-colored braces or aesthetic braces, clear braces are made of ceramic rather than metal to match the color of your teeth and blend in with your smile.
They work just the same way, though. Your orthodontist at Griffin & Errera Orthodontics uses clear ceramic braces to shift your smile in gear like metal braces.
Clear braces and metal braces use similar components, but the ceramic brackets in clear braces come in a see-through ceramic material.
Dr. Griffin and Dr. Errera offer 3M Clarity ceramic braces to patients looking for a more natural treatment option than traditional metal braces. Similar to metal braces, 3M Clarity braces use a system of brackets and wires to align your smile over time.
What’s the difference between 3M Clarity braces and traditional metal braces? These brackets are made of tooth-colored ceramic material, giving you the ability to blend in with the crowd while straightening your teeth.
How Do 3M Clarity Braces Work?
3M Clarity braces use brackets with rounded edges and feel more comfortable than traditional metal braces.
These clear brackets are natural enough to blend in with your smile, strong enough to straighten any malocclusion, and comfortable enough that you’ll forget you’re wearing braces.
Metal Braces Vs. Clear Braces
Clear braces from Griffin & Errera Orthodontics are an excellent option for patients of all ages looking to straighten their smile without attracting notice. When you’re deciding between clear and metal braces, here’s what you need to know.
Both braces work the same, using brackets and archwires to straighten your teeth throughout your treatment. The brackets on metal braces are made of stainless steel, a slightly more durable material than clear ceramic.
However, both clear and metal braces are strong enough to benefit even the most severe orthodontic issues.
You may be worried about ceramic braces staining, but advancements in modern orthodontics have virtually made staining a thing of the past.
All you need to do to take care of your clear braces is maintain your regular hygiene routine, pay extra attention to the space around your brackets when brushing, and enjoy the benefits of a natural smile!
For special occasions or if you want to have a little fun, add colored elastics, just like traditional metal braces.
