Clear Ceramic Braces in Sugar Land and Rosenberg

Woman smiling with clear ceramic bracesIf you need braces but you want a more discreet option than traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces may be a good choice for you. Clear dental braces work similarly to metal braces, but the brackets are transparent instead of metal. They are also slightly larger than metal brackets.

We have many patients in Sugar Land and Rosenberg who prefer the look of clear bracket braces for effective treatment.

Who’s a Good Fit for Ceramic Braces?

Adults and teens are the best fits for ceramic braces. They often want options that will keep their orthodontic care private. With clear braces, you have the ability to smile and take pictures without anyone noticing your braces. Clear ceramic braces provide a discreet option that allows you to receive treatment without other people noticing. Teens also tell us they feel less self-conscious about clear braces than metal ones.

Sometimes people choose ceramic braces for reasons other than aesthetics. If you have an allergy to nickel, which can cause contact dermatitis if you touch metal braces, you may need ceramic braces. Younger children who want an invisible option for braces but may not show enough responsibility for Invisalign may also be good candidates for clear braces.

The benefits of ceramic braces include:


  • Discretion: The primary reason people choose ceramic braces is to receive orthodontic treatment that other people won’t notice.
  • Flexible treatment options: Many people want clear braces, but Invisalign can only treat certain conditions. Ceramic braces have greater treatment flexibility.
  • Nonremovable: For kids who tend to lose things, braces that stay in the mouth are a better choice, giving them less chance to misplace orthodontic gear.
