Types of Clear Braces

There are two main types of clear braces, the well known, Invisalign System & the Damon Clear 2 which is a ceramic brace option shown above. Ceramic braces act just like tradition braces & are in fact the same size as well as shape as metal braces. However these brackets are tooth-colored or clear to ease visibility. Meanwhile, the Invisalign system utilizes the aligner method to gently mold your teeth in the smile you’re looking for. Be forewarned, although they are the least noticeable, using aligners generally takes a bit longer than the traditional bracket & brace.
