One of the biggest drawbacks of traditional braces is their appearance – if you have them, everybody around you will certainly notice. However, with advancements in dental materials, Dr. Cordes is now able to provide a type of braces that is specifically designed to blend into the teeth as well as straighten them. For children and adults alike, clear braces offer the best of both worlds when it comes to effectiveness and aesthetics. Could they be exactly what you or your child need?

Instead of stainless steel, clear braces consist of thin, clear ceramic brackets and tooth-colored wires. They shift the teeth the exact same way as metal braces, but the appliance’s appearance is much more subtle. This allows a patient to easily maintain their confidence throughout treatment. We typically recommend them for older children and image-conscious adults. While most patients would be good candidates for clear braces, there are certain misalignment issues that can only be handled by metal braces. Dr. Cordes can let you know if this treatment would be a good fit for you or your child when you come to see him for a consultation.
