Just like metal conventional braces, clear braces use a series of buttons (“brackets”) placed on the teeth and wires (“archwires”) connected to them – as well as elastics, small rubber chains, and other important tools for treatment.

While conventional braces have metal or stainless-steel brackets and wires, clear braces are comprised of clear plastic or ceramic brackets and white-coated archwires, making them an appealing and discrete alternative for adults and teenagers.

Clear braces, just like their metal counterparts, put gentle tension on the teeth to guide them into their correct alignment.
