Our orthodontists offer both ceramic and clear braces at our offices. Invisible braces function just like metal braces however the brackets are tooth-colored or clear so that they blend in with the teeth. Invisible braces are a discreet and popular alternative to metal brackets because they are less noticeable, and often, even undetectable at a distance or in photos.
Clear and ceramic braces, also known as invisible braces, function just like traditional metal braces, however the brackets are less visible than metal brackets. Clear braces consist of clear brackets that are applied to the teeth and connected with a thin metal wire. Ceramic braces consist of tooth colored brackets that are applied to the teeth, that are also connected with a thin wire. Both clear and ceramic braces are available to patients who prefer a more discrete set of braces that blend better with the natural color of the teeth.
Clear and ceramic braces are surprisingly affordable! We offer affordable and low cost clear braces for adults and children who prefer the look of invisible braces. The cost of braces varies on length of treatment and any additional appliances, surgeries or treatment that may be required. There are several ways to pay for your braces.

Can you pay for invisible braces using insurance?
If your dental insurance includes coverage for orthodontics, then you can apply your benefits to help cover the cost of your clear or ceramic braces treatment. The amount that dental insurance plans cover varies by plan. If your plan does not cover orthodontics, it’s possible to add a supplemental orthodontic plan. Contact your insurer for benefit details specific to your plan.
Braces may cause soreness, discomfort or irritation in the first few days after having your braces put on, and it’s also not uncommon to feel discomfort for several days after each follow up appointment for adjustments with your orthodontist. Soreness from braces stems from the movement of the tissues, gums, and ligaments in the mouth that heal and reform as the teeth move into realignment. Braces, however, should not cause severe pain. We advise visiting your orthodontist immediately if you feel sharp or shooting pain caused by your braces. Similarly contact your dentist immediately if you experience bleeding gums, abscess, tooth pain, chronic bad breath or other symptoms of poor oral health.
