Cosmetic braces, also known as clear braces, are orthodontic appliances used to align and straighten teeth. They offer a more discreet and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional metal braces and are preferred by patients looking to undergo orthodontic treatment without drawing unwanted attention.  

Cosmetic braces are highly effective in aligning and straightening teeth. They can address various orthodontic issues, including crowding, spacing, crooked teeth, and mild to moderate bite problems. At Sunrise Dental of Federal Way, the treatment plan is customized to the patient's needs, and progress is consistently monitored throughout treatment.

Difference Between Traditional and Cosmetic Braces

Traditional braces consist of metal brackets bonded to the front surface of the teeth and connected by metal wires. They are obvious and easily noticeable when you smile or speak. On the other hand, cosmetic braces are designed to be less noticeable. These braces use tooth-colored or clear brackets and wires that blend in with the natural teeth, making them less conspicuous. 

Traditional braces consist of metal parts. In contrast, cosmetic braces employ different materials for a more aesthetic appearance. These braces have tooth-colored or clear brackets made from ceramic or composite materials. The wires used for cosmetic braces may also be tooth-colored or clear.

How Do Cosmetic Braces Work?

If cosmetic braces are determined to be the right orthodontic solution for you, the tooth-colored or clear brackets will be bonded to the teeth and an archwire will also be secured. The wire attached to the brackets applies controlled forces to guide the teeth into proper alignment over time.  

Throughout the course of your orthodontic treatment, you will have regular check-up appointments with our dentist to monitor your progress. The dentist will check that the tooth movements are progressing as planned, make any necessary adjustments, and provide you with instructions on what to do next. These adjustments help ensure that the teeth continue to move in the desired direction.
