Clear braces are a way to straighten the teeth in as little as six months that is also discreet and reliable. It is often recommended for adults that want to straighten their teeth but don’t want to have metal braces distracting from their appearance. These clear braces are used to cover the part of your smile referred to as the ‘social six’ which are the six most visible teeth when you smile. These are straightened with a tooth coloured wire and clear brackets that comfortably straighten your teeth.
As with all orthodontic treatment, it’s important that you wear a retainer to maintain your new straighter smile. You will have a number of options available to you, including a fitted retainer or a removable retainer. People often neglect wearing their removable retainers, so we recommend having a fitted retainer which is secured to the back of the teeth where it is unnoticeable. It’s imperative that you wear your retainer if you want straighter teeth for life.
99.7% of people think a smile is an important social asset – and as dentists we completely agree. Not only is a straight smile generally healthier, they also look appealing and may help you to appear more professional. According to studies, 74% of people think that an unattractive smile can adversely affect a person’s chance for employment and success. While this statistic may seem extreme, when you consider that your smile is one of the first things that people will notice, this does not come as a surprise.

Clear braces do not work towards correcting your bite – it is therefore only a cosmetic procedure. Traditional orthodontics usually takes a lot longer as you’re trying to improve the position of the jaw as well as the teeth, though some people do not need this which means clear braces might be right for them.
