Clear Braces- An Aesthetically Pleasing Way to Improve Your Smile

Our Tucson, Arizona orthodontist Dr. Bedoya and her team of friendly professionals here at Doctor Smiles Orthodontics take pride in the fact that we provide our patients with several treatment options to choose from. One of the most popular types of braces we use today is our Tucson, AZ clear braces. These ceramic braces are made of a clear material to provide the wearer with an aesthetically pleasing way to obtain a more beautiful, straight smile.

Make a Great First Impression

When it comes to making an impression, one of the very first things people notice about you is your smile. Foradults who have crooked teeth, meeting new people can cause anxiety. A teeth straightening solution for adults that has become increasingly popular over the last few years is getting clear ceramic braces. These braces blend in with the natural color of the teeth, making them less noticeable when compared to traditional metal braces.

A Discreet Teeth Straightening Option

Most adults don’t wish to wear highly visible metal braces because they know that these types of braces are most often associated with kids and teens. But clear ceramic braces are far less noticeable, making these types of braces a sensible, ‘clear’ choice for adults. Our patients who wear discreet, clear ceramic braces enjoy being able to smile with complete confidence throughout the treatment process knowing that the people they meet are focusing on their smiles and not on their braces.


While the ceramic brackets used with clear braces do not become stained or discolored, the ligatures or elastic ties used with these braces can become discolored between orthodontic visits from drinking coffee, tea, wine or eating certain foods and smoking. However, these ties are changed when regular adjustments are made when you visit our Tucson orthodontics office over the course of your treatment.

Orthodontic treatment with our Tucson clear braces can take longer than treatment with traditional metal braces.

But if you don’t mind investing a little more time in perfecting your smile, these braces may be for you! Clear ceramic braces provide you with an equally effective treatment as metal braces and they’re a great way to have your teeth straightened and your smile improved.


For those patients who do not like the look and feel of traditional braces, our Tucson Invisalign and Invisalign Teen are great aesthetically pleasing options for straightening their teeth. The Invisalign System uses a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth without the use of metal wires and brackets. One of the greatest benefits to using Invisalign is that the aligners are virtually invisible, and can be removed at any time to eat, drink or brush your teeth. Invisalign is not for everyone however, and only Dr. Bedoya can determine if this is the best treatment option for you. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Bedoya today to see if our Tucson Invisalign treatment is best for your orthodontic issues.
