Esthetic braces, otherwise known as clear braces, are made with tooth-colored ceramic material that blends perfectly with your smile. Esthetic braces work just as effectively as traditional metal braces, but have a less noticeable appearance because they blend in more with your teeth. Esthetic braces are ideal for teens and adults who are seeking effective orthodontic treatment, but do not want to deal with the look of traditional braces. At Rawle Orthodontics, our team specializes in esthetic braces, which are a great solution to achieving a beautiful, healthy smile.

How Do Esthetic Braces Work?
Esthetic braces work similarly to traditional braces, as they use the same type of system, which means your orthodontist will attach the ceramic brackets to your teeth, then place a wire across the brackets and secure them with clear elastics. About every 4 to 6 weeks, your orthodontist will perform maintenance, which involves changing the wires and rubber bands. These adjustments will help your teeth gradually shift into their correct position overtime, so these office appointments are essential to your progress.
Benefits of Esthetic Braces
There are a wide range of benefits of esthetic braces. First, they do an efficient job when it comes to shifting your teeth into the correct positions, and do so while being less noticeable. If you are seeking orthodontic treatment that isn’t associated with a mouth full of metal, then this may be ideal for you. In addition, there are other benefits such as the cost, style, feel, and durability that make esthetic braces a popular option for teens and adults. Also, there are many people who aren’t ideal candidates for Invisalign, so this is the next best option if you are seeking a less noticeable treatment method.
