The strength and predictability of traditional braces, without the look.
Clear braces are an excellent option for patients with complex cases that do not like the esthetics of metal braces. They are also great for patients who don’t trust themselves to wear Clear Aligners 24/7.
3M Clarity Advanced Braces are the best ceramic braces on the market because they offer the following:
The translucent brackets are specifically made to blend with your natural tooth structure and are highly resistant to staining and discoloration.
The brackets are made with a fine-grained ceramic material that offers strength in a small package.
Unlike some ceramic braces, Clarity Advanced are easily removed due to their unique design.
Most of all, these provide an esthetic solution for patients that don’t want to worry about wearing clear aligners all the time and taking them in and out. You can easily wear these braces, eat, drink, and sleep without worry.
They can. Although 3M Clarity Advanced are the most stain resistant brackets on the market, they can still stain if treated improperly. They need to be brushed 2x daily for 2 minutes at a time and patients need to brush or thoroughly rinse after drinking coffee, tea, or eating turmeric. Tobacco smoking will also severely stain these brackets (which no patient should be doing anyways).
