Transparent Braces

Are you thinking about getting braces as an adult? Great! Your precious pearly whites deserve your utmost attention and care. Opting for orthodontic treatments at Wilmington Orthodontic Center is excellent for smile aesthetics and maintaining optimum oral health. Uneven and crooked teeth give disease-causing bacteria a place to hide, which further leads to dental decay and gum diseases. 

However, the traditional system of teeth straightening that is metallic braces can be a cause of apprehension for some adults. Having metal in your mouth for long durations can affect your confidence during the course of treatment as it looks unappealing. Moreover, metallic braces are known to be uncomfortable and come with a lot of restrictions. In addition, many adults who want to get their teeth straightened cannot opt for metallic braces, primarily if they work in the consumer-facing industry. 

If you are finding yourself in such a situation, do not worry. With the advancements in the field of dental sciences, you can now opt for transparent braces in Wilmington to get your desired smile. 

As the name suggests, transparent braces blend in with your natural teeth structure and are not that apparent. At Wilmington Orthodontic Center, you can opt for various modalities of transparent braces, which includes -


Ceramic braces work just like metal braces. They, too, take the help of brackets and wires to move the teeth into the desired position. However, instead of metal, the brackets are made of ceramic. Ceramic is one of the most robust dental materials and can be manipulated to match the shade of your natural teeth. Once placed, they are much less apparent as compared to metal braces and virtually invisible in photographs. Earlier, the wires used for ceramic braces were metal; however, even the archwires are made of transparent material now, making the braces look even more discreet. 

Ceramic or clear braces at Wilmington Orthodontic Center are being used to treat even complex orthodontic cases and look much more pleasant. The only thing you need to do is maintain good oral hygiene, as ceramic braces are known to stain easily. Transparent braces in Delaware also tend to be a little more expensive than traditional metallic braces. 


If you are looking for something more discreet and want your braces to be completely transparent, then Invisalign might just be for you. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment modality that uses a series of transparent aligners to bring your teeth into their proper places. Invisalign clear aligners are made of medical-grade and biocompatible soft acrylic material and apply small forces to move the teeth into their final desired positions. Depending on individual cases, Invisalign treatment can last anywhere for 8-18 months. You will have to wear each aligner for two weeks, after which it is replaced with the next one in the series. The best part about Invisalign is that they are truly transparent braces and completely discreet. No one will be able to tell you are getting your teeth straightened until they carefully look for it. They are completely invisible in pictures and can be removed for daily hygiene procedures, making proper oral health care possible.
