The Clear Alternative to Metal
Clear ceramic braces at Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics are the treatment of choice if you want a powerful treatment with a stylish flair.
Dr. Kavanaugh and our expert team will give you the smile of your dreams — without the visibility of traditional metal braces.
Clear braces are an amazing option if you want to straighten your teeth in a stylish way.
Imagine having the confidence to smile without feeling self-conscious about your braces dominating your appearance every time you grin. Clear braces use transparent or tooth-colored materials that blend beautifully with your teeth, making them practically invisible.
You can flaunt your smile confidently without anyone noticing that you're undergoing orthodontic treatment.
How They Work
Clear braces work on the same principles as metal braces, gently applying pressure to guide your teeth into their ideal positions.
The best part is that they're less visible than traditional braces — so much so that you'll hardly notice that they are there as they work their magic.
So say goodbye to those days of worrying about metal poking your cheeks!
Easy to Maintain
Clear braces can be easier to clean because you won't have to navigate around bulky brackets and wires of traditional braces.
So why wait? Get started on your journey to a beautiful smile today with clear braces from Kurt Kavanaugh Orthodontics!
Clear Braces Vs. Metal Braces
Metal braces are known for their strength and effectiveness. Clear braces work the same way, but the brackets blend better with your natural smile.
We use a stylish ceramic material for our clear braces that’s a bit more fragile than metal, so Dr. Kavanaugh typically recommends them for older teens and adults.
That being said, both types of braces work on the same principles and tend to be roughly as effective as one another.
Caring for Clear Braces
Ceramic braces are stain-resistant, so your smile will remain beautiful from start to finish. Remember, though, that the glue we use to attach the brackets to the teeth and the clear elastic ties that hold the wires in place can stain.
This typically shouldn’t be a worry, as Dr. Kavanaugh will replace your elastic ties at each checkup. However, if you neglect your oral care routine, this can give your braces a dingy look between appointments.
Remember to brush your teeth at least twice daily to get rid of any plaque and bacteria that could affect your braces. As long as you stay consistent with Dr. Kavanaugh’s instructions, you’ll never have to worry about your morning coffee or that evening glass of red wine.
Follow this simple plan to keep your smile shining and your braces in great shape!
