Clear braces are recommended for an individual will depend on their unique dental needs during our patient-centered evaluation tailored to each patient.

Our board-certified orthodontist, Dr. Josh Gilbert, will assess your orthodontic concerns and discuss how clear braces can align with your aesthetic goals and needs.

Why Clear Braces?

We offer two types of clear braces options at Gilbert Orthodontics including GC Chic ceramic braces and the Lightforce clear braces system. Clear braces offer several advantages for patients seeking orthodontic treatment at Gilbert Orthodontics:

Clear braces are designed to blend in with the natural color of your teeth. The brackets are made of transparent or tooth-colored ceramic material, making them less noticeable compared to traditional metal braces.
Clear braces are highly effective in correcting various orthodontic issues, including crooked teeth, overcrowding, gaps, and bite alignment problems.

They work similarly to traditional braces, using wires and brackets to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment.

Ceramic brackets are typically smoother and more comfortable than traditional metal brackets. They are designed to minimize irritation and rubbing against the lips and cheeks, providing a more pleasant orthodontic experience.

Clear braces are made of strong ceramic materials that are resistant to staining and discoloration. They are built to withstand the forces required for tooth movement throughout the treatment duration.

Clear braces can be customized to match the shape and size of your teeth, ensuring a precise fit. Dr. Gilbert will create a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs, providing personalized care throughout your orthodontic journey.
