Clear Braces Frequently Asked Questions
What are Clear Braces?
Clear Braces are similar to traditional braces but they are crystal clear. They are actually made of a ceramic material, giving them a beautiful look. Clear braces are excellent at correcting all types of orthodontic issues. You will see them all over Staten Island – they are very popular among our high school and adult patients.
What are the different types of braces?
When someone is ready for braces in our office, we discuss the three different types of braces in detail, along with models and examples to show the options:
1.Colored Metal Braces: These are the most popular braces selected in Staten Island. They are the traditional metal braces that you see most often covered with colors.
2. Clear Braces: These are clear braces made out of ceramic and are the most esthetic braces option. These are very popular among our adult patients.
3. Lumalight Braces: These are unique lighter-colored metal braces that we offer at 103 Orthodontics that are sort of in-between clear braces and metal braces. These are perfect for patients that don’t want clear braces and don’t want the traditional darker metal braces. Lumalight braces are made of metal but the metal is much lighter in color, so they are much less noticeable and blend in much more with the color of your teeth when compared to traditional metal braces. These are very popular among our Staten Island patients in high school.
What is the difference between Clear Braces and Invisalign?
Invisalign is completely different than Clear Braces. Invisalign uses a series of removable clear trays that gradually move your teeth. On the other hand, Clear Braces are glued onto the teeth just like traditional metal braces.
Do Clear Braces turn yellow?
Historically, clear braces could discolor slightly, depending on what you eat and drink. However, in 2021, 103 Orthodontics started using a new product that drastically reduced this issue. Our patients have loved the improvement!
Do Clear Braces hurt?
The first few days will unfortunately be uncomfortable because your teeth are moving for the first time ever. After this brief initial period, the clear braces are super easy. During the first few days though, most people are eating softer foods like soup, mashed potatoes, yogurt…
Are Clear Braces bigger than traditional braces?
Actually, yes, clear braces are slightly bigger because they are made of ceramic. The ceramic needs to be a little bulkier to prevent a brace from breaking, while the traditional metal braces can be smaller profile.
