Clear Braces

Having braces doesn’t necessarily require highly noticeable metal brackets and wires. In fact, many of today’s braces are made from either clear or natural tooth-colored materials to provide patients with an attractive, less noticeable alternative to traditional braces.

What is the difference between clear braces and clear aligners?

Clear braces are the same as traditional metal braces, except that they are clear! Clear braces are a less noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces and provide patients with an equally effective treatment.

Clear aligners are different from clear braces. They are plastic trays designed to fit into your mouth like a retainer. Dr. Lepley has done extensive training in clear aligners and can treat most cases the same with aligners or braces.

What are the advantages to clear braces?

As with any orthodontic treatment, it is wise to choose the right option for your needs and lifestyle. Clear braces are a great alternative to traditional metal braces, and Dr. Lepley will help you determine whether they are the right treatment for you.

Advantages to clear braces

  • Appearance: Clear braces are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Clear braces offer an aesthetic alternative for patients who seek options other than traditional metal braces.
  • Confidence: Many patients who choose clear braces feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment, especially knowing that people are focusing on their smile rather than their braces.


Are clear braces or clear aligners the right choice for my smile and me?
