Cosmetic Clear Braces

Cosmetic Clear Braces can be a great option to look into for those who are not suitable for Invisalign treatment. They are an effective cosmetic and orthodontic treatment option which offers a more subtle treatment method.

Not often do people disagree that braces are a wonderful technique that will provide individuals with healthier, straighter teeth and a smile to be confident of. Vogue Dental Studios understands that, yes, people want to straighten their teeth – but they don’t want to undergo the unflattering process of having “train tracks,” especially as an adult. We offer a modified procedure of this treatment option with clear bracket materials and tooth-coloured wires that are barely visible.


How does it work?

The mechanics of braces are efficacious with the teamwork of a bracket, bonding agent and arch wire. The arch wire is a nifty little object that wants to remain straight; despite how many times we handle it or what position it is placed in – its objective is to go back to its original making. The teeth are moved as the arch wire applies pressure onto the brackets. This pressure is constant and eventually forces teeth into the proper and desired positions.

As braces apply force onto our teeth, our tooth becomes loose in the socket. Bone then grows to support and reinforce the tooth in its new location. This is also known as bone remodelling.

What does the process involve?

APPOINTMENT ONE
Consultation 

The process involved with Cosmetic Clear Braces will always begin with assessment. We will examine your oral health and suitability for treatment and take necessary XRAYS and scans.

APPOINTMENT TWO
Application 

If you are suitable for Cosmetic Clear Braces and choose to proceed with your treatment, we will prepare your teeth with cleaning and drying. We will then apply the bonding agent and attach the brackets. Lastly, we will place the arch wire in the specific brackets and secure them with the bands.

APPOINTMENT THREE +
Adjustment 

You will require follow up appointments every 6-8 weeks for adjustments. We will check on the progress of your teeth, ensure the wires are moving your teeth in the right direction and change your rubber bands.

Will it be painful?

The process itself is generally not painful. Patients do report some tenderness and discomfort after the braces have been attached. This may dissipate anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks after the appointment.

What can I do to help the pain?

Vogue Dental Studios provides our patients with a special orthodontic wax that sits on top of the brackets when our patients are experiencing soreness. We also arrange a small take home numbing cream the eases the discomfort of ulcers that may potentially develop because of the brackets. It will take a few weeks for the inside of your mouth adjusts and accustom to the braces.

How much does it cost?

The needs for all individuals vary. Because of this, it is vital for us to have a thorough discussion and analysis during the consultation stage. Please feel free to contact us or book a consultation for a better understanding of your suitability, possible outcome and potential costs. 


What are my other options?

Invisalign

Traditional Braces
Traditional metal braces are much like cosmetic clear braces. They are a more inexpensive option with colorful, expressive elastic bands that can be changed and chosen at every follow up appointment. They work and function like cosmetic clear braces but are much more noticeable.

Lingual Braces
Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth as opposed to the front. They are a wonderful cosmetic option for those who want to straighten their smile without anyone knowing! Lingual braces require customized brackets and specific skill to implement. Not all dental practices offer this method of straightening teeth but it is an option here at Vogue Dental Studios. It must be noted that lingual braces are one of the more expensive methods of teeth correction due to its complexity.

Porcelain Veneers
Very minor misalignment can often be corrected with porcelain veneers. Many patients that come in to address the position/placement of 1-2 teeth often choose porcelain veneers as a less evasive and speedier treatment option.

If Cosmetic Clear Braces aren’t right for you, our trained dental practitioners will be more than willing to measure your needs and assist in launching a treatment program to suit your circumstance. We offer supreme excellence in quality, service and value.
