Clear Braces or Metal Braces — Which is for You?

Mar 28, 2018

If you want beautiful teeth, what should you do? There are a lot of options available when it comes to cosmetic dentistry; even when it comes to braces, you have quite a few options. When we say “clear braces” many people automatically assume we are talking about something like Invisalign, but that’s not the case! Invisalign is just one of the options when it comes to clear braces.

More Than One Kind of Clear Braces

When most people think of clear braces, their minds automatically race to Invisalign. Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to traditional metal braces. It has a lot of perks that are unique and super desirable. While Invisalign is not as effective as metal braces in terms of speed or ability to correct seriously misaligned teeth, it is still able to give people with mildly misaligned teeth a perfect smile with some time.

There are, however, other options when it comes to less visible braces. Damon Clear Braces function much like traditional wire braces, except that they appear much more natural. You get rid of the bulky, metal brackets and replace them with less visible ceramic braces. These braces are stain resistant and comfortable.

Some of the perks of Invisalign:

  • Invisalign is removable! This means that you don’t have to give up any chewy foods that you normally have to stop eating when you receive traditional braces. It also means you can take it out for special events, so when you graduate, you aren’t a metal mouth.
  • It is hardly noticeable. Even while it is in your mouth, it’s hard to tell that you are wearing Invisalign, even from just a few feet away. People who dislike traditional braces for aesthetic reasons love this perk.

Some perks of Damon clear braces:

  • Although they are more visible than Invisalign, they are much less noticeable than traditional wire braces.
  • They are extremely effective.

Perks of traditional metal braces:

  • While they may be less comfortable and more noticeable, traditional braces are often praised as the most effective option when it comes to correcting your smile quickly.
