Why Choose Clear Ceramic Clarity Braces?

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi

Clear fixed braces are the least visible fixed braces that are fitted to the outside of the teeth. They are translucent, which allows the braces to blend in with the colour of your natural teeth and are less visible. They still work in the same way as a metal fixed brace to give the same fantastic results but a lot less noticeable.

Will clear braces straighten my teeth effectively?

Yes they straighten your teeth to provide beautiful natural results. The case below shows a patient who wore upper and lower clear ceramic braces over 24 months to straighten her teeth.

Can children wear clear braces?

Yes, we often fit clear fixed braces on the upper teeth for children. Many children do not wish to have very visible braces and clear ceramic braces are the perfect treatment option.

I have an overbite – can I wear a lower clear brace?

Although clear ceramic braces can be fitted on the majority of cases, however in patients who have a ‘deep overbite’ we would not fit lower ceramic braces. An orthodontic assessment is required to determine the suitability for treatment.

How do you fit clear braces?

It takes one visit to fit the ceramic fixed braces. A -Your teeth are cleaned and then prepared by placing a clear liquid on the teeth, similar to painting your fingernails. B – The brackets are directly placed onto the teeth. C – The brackets are set with a light. D – The wire is then inserted along the brackets. The whole procedure takes around 20 minutes and you are able to continue with your normal routines immediately.

Does it hurt?

It generally takes 3-5 days to get used to Clarity braces fitted in our London office. During this time you may experience some discomfort similar to a mild dull ache which is well tolerated or relieved by mild painkillers. Your mouth may feel a little rubbing from the brackets and this can be relived using ‘wax’ which is provided to you free throughout treatment. Similar to conventional braces, during treatment there are types of food which you will now have to avoid to reduce the risk of the brace breaking, for e.g. crusty breads. We will thoroughly discuss with you the after-care advice and throughout your treatment our team are happy to answer any concerns at any time.

How much does it cost?

The cost of ceramic braces starts from £6,000 and depends on complexity of treatment. Please come and see us for an orthodontic assessment to obtain an accurate cost of treatment. The treatment fee includes all your appointments including retainers, any emergency appointments and all materials with no hidden extra costs. Our interest free credit will allow you to spread the payments over the course of your treatment.

How do I arrange a consultation?

Please call us 020 8222 8760 to arrange a consultation at your preferred location of either Central London at our Harley Street office or in West London at Hammersmith office.
