Clear Braces

Traditional braces are still the most common way adults and children correct their teeth. Methods like clear aligners have become popular, but are not always effective for everyone.  Traditional braces use silver brackets and wires that work together to straighten teeth.  This method has always been effective, but results in a metallic look dreaded by adults and teens alike.  Dr. Gregory Ross has a solution for every orthodontic patient, and clear braces could be the one for you!

Aesthetic improvements have been made to traditional braces that can achieve the same results without the metallic element.  Brackets are now available in clear and translucent forms that are designed to resist staining over time.  To connect these brackets, wires the color of natural teeth are used.  The final look is not totally invisible, but is much more subtle than traditional silver braces and doesn’t look metallic.  With these clear braces, you can achieve the same great results traditional braces offer with a better disguise during treatment.
