Although metal braces are typically the way to go for straightening your teeth, a more aesthetically pleasing alternative is clear braces or aligners. Zicherman, Lago, and Associates, PC’s dental professionals want to help you decide which choice is best for you.

Clear braces today are typically made of a ceramic composite that blends in with your teeth in whatever shade you need. They are also hardly noticeable in photos and work just like metal braces, not falling off or breaking easily. They can be used for most cases unless your teeth are very misaligned.

Another option besides metal braces are clear aligners. These are removable, custom-made, plastic aligners. You can remove them for easy cleaning and eating, and then replace them every two weeks for a new aligner. It is recommended to keep wearing them after completing your alignment to let the teeth settle into place.

Getting clear braces or aligners is a method many are turning to today to avoid the regular look of metal braces. They provide a comfortable substitute for the way you want to look. Our orthodontic clinic here in Peabody, Massachusetts, are happy to make an appointment or meet for a consultation to get clear, dental treatment for your teeth.
