A Clear Alternative to Metal Braces
Blend In With Ceramic Braces
Clear braces are made of ceramic material so they’re less visible on your teeth than metal braces. LightForce clear braces look smaller than ever and the tooth-colored polycrystalline material can move your teeth more comfortably and efficiently than traditional braces.
LightForce clear braces with Dr. Ryan Minga look less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. Many older teenagers and adult patients at Minga Orthodontics prefer this subtler option because it lets you achieve a great smile without the visibility of metal braces.
Ceramic braces are also referred to as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces. Dr. Minga uses them to correct your bite and align your smile the same way as metal braces.
In fact, LightForce ceramic braces are made of similar components as metal braces. Instead of metal, the brackets on the front side of the teeth are made of see-through ceramic material.
Dr. Minga designs your 3D printed brackets and customizes them to you and only you, so he can align your teeth more precisely and accurately.
These ceramic options blend in well with your natural smile. Though they’re not completely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape as metal braces, they’re much less noticeable for patients around The Triangle.
Even though most of our patients in Delaware who choose ceramic braces love how discrete they are, we do have some teens and adults who like to use colored ligature ties.
This gives braces an almost neon look. The colors pop off the clear brackets, creating a unique look most people around The Triangle haven’t seen before.
LightForce braces are lightyears ahead of the technology behind other braces.
Not only is every LightForce smile backed by cloud-based algorithm technology that intelligently plans your treatment, but their personalized 3D printed brackets mean that LightForce can adjust your teeth from more optimal angles and positions than would be possible with traditional braces.
This means Dr. Minga can create the exact forces needed to align your teeth in the best position possible! LightForce clear braces let us move your teeth, not your brackets.
