What is ClearSmile Brace?
The ClearSmile Brace is designed to create gentle pressure to coax irregular front teeth into a regular, beautiful curve. It is normally applied to the front ten teeth. The process can take between 3 and 12 months, depending on how much the teeth need to be moved. Results start to show within the first weeks, however. The ClearSmile Brace is less visible than some other tooth alignment systems, as its wires are coated white, rather than silver. The brace uses a material called Ni-Ti, which has shape-memory – meaning the wire will always return to its original shape, regardless of how much it is bent.
What are the benefits of ClearSmile Brace?
The ClearSmile Brace is less visible than traditional fixed braces. Clear brackets are used, as opposed to metal brackets, and the wire used in the brace is also coated with a tooth-coloured material. As the force exerted on the teeth is gentle, there is less risk of damage to them than with some other orthodontic treatments.
