Invisalign vs. Clear Braces: How are they different?

In this blog, we’ll look at Invisalign vs. clear braces. How are they different? 

Sometimes, people use “clear braces” and Invisalign interchangeably. While they are both orthodontic treatments to perfect your smile, they are very different. Read on.

What are Clear Braces?

Today, modern ceramic braces feature clear brackets. Traditionally, these brackets are silver metallic color, but the clear tooth-colored version is much less noticeable. Thus, all you see is the thin metal archwire that crosses along the middle of the teeth.

While these braces are much more discreet than in the past, they remain attached to your teeth. Thus, you have to take special care to avoid foods that could stain the clear brackets. And, you must carefully floss around the braces after eating.

Thus, clear braces aren’t as convenient as Invisalign, which can come out when you eat. Although they are discreet, they aren’t quite as invisible as clear aligners either.

However, clear braces may be a better option for some people. Generally, braces may be preferable in cases that require advanced correction. Before you begin treatment, we’ll help you determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign. In some instances, we may refer patients to a braces provider.

For an example of what clear braces look like, see the picture below:

Invisalign vs. Clear Braces

At Clearsmile, we focus exclusively on providing the best Invisalign treatment in Union County, New Jersey. We love Invisalign because of the many advantages of clear aligners. Plus, Invisalign today can treat a wide variety of smiles for people of all ages.

Advantages of Invisalign: 

  • Take out the aligners when you eat or drink.
  • Take out the aligners to brush your teeth.
  • Custom precise fit for comfort
  • Efficient, effective treatment for all kinds of smiles
  • Affordable with Clearsmile payment plans
  • Works for people of all age groups
  • Costs about the same as braces
  • Fewer appointments for more convenience
  • No wire or brackets that can break
  • Improves health as your perfect your smile
  • Almost invisible so you’re more confident from day one

As you can see, there are incredible benefits to Invisalign treatment. Not only will you look better, but you can avoid oral health concerns too. Plus, Invisalign gives you the freedom to eat what you like and gives you added confidence since they are so discreet.
