Ever had metal braces before and found it unappealing in appearance? The most common brackets that an orthodontist use for straightening teeth are metal brackets. For some who work in fields of multimedia, modeling, singing or acting, aesthetics is an important aspect before considering any kind of treatment. Using clear braces is an option for those who value esthetics while straightening their teeth. One major advantage of using clear braces avoids the metallic look that orthodontic treatment is associated with. These can be made from ceramic and polycarbonate material that can either be translucent or clear which allows the natural color of the teeth to shine thru. These brackets are bonded to the tooth with clear orthodontic cement.
