The Future is Clear

At Champlain Orthodontics, we offer clear braces, a modern way to get a stunning smile. Our expert orthodontists, Dr. Ryan and Dr. Eaton, use the latest technology to give you a comfortable and efficient braces journey at our offices in Williston and St. Albans.

The Clear Choice

Clear braces give you a discreet and effective way to straighten your teeth. They use ceramic materials that blend with your teeth, making them less noticeable than traditional metal braces.

At Champlain Orthodontics, you’ll get a custom treatment plan designed just for you.

What To Expect When You Get Your Braces Off

How Clear Braces Work

Clear braces have several key parts that work together to move your teeth into the best positions:

  • Ceramic Brackets: Small, tooth-colored brackets bonded to the front of each tooth. They blend in with your natural teeth.
  • Archwires: Thin metal wires run through the brackets. They apply gentle pressure to your teeth, guiding them into alignment. We adjust these wires regularly to keep your treatment on track.
  • Elastic Bands: These small rubber bands, often tooth-colored or clear, hold the archwire to the brackets. They help maintain the wire's position and apply the necessary force for tooth movement.
  • Molar Bands: Metal rings around the back teeth give extra support for the archwire. They enhance stability during treatment.

These parts work together to gradually move your teeth into their correct positions, so you'll be on the way to a straight and beautiful smile.

Why Choose Clear Braces?

Clear braces offer a ton of advantages that make them a popular choice for orthodontic treatment. From confidence to comfort, you find a clear winner to solve your orthodontic needs.

Stay Confident With a
Discreet Look

Clear braces blend with your natural teeth, so they’re much less noticeable than metal braces. You can smile confidently without worrying about how your braces look.

Enjoy a Comfortable Fit

Our digital scans ensure perfectly fitting braces for a more comfortable experience. The smooth ceramic material reduces irritation to your gums and cheeks, making your treatment more pleasant.

Feel the Durability

Clear braces use strong materials that handle daily wear and tear. They last throughout your treatment, giving you peace of mind.

Clear Braces vs. Metal Braces

Choosing between clear braces and metal braces depends on your needs and preferences. Here’s how they compare:

Look & Feel

Clear braces are smaller and blend with your teeth, making them less noticeable. This makes them a great option for teens and adults who want a more discreet treatment.

Durability & Strength

Both clear and metal braces are strong and effective. Clear braces are durable and can handle daily wear and tear, but their ceramic materials are slightly weaker than metal.

Our team will help you choose the best option based on your needs.

Comfort & Fit

Clear braces fit comfortably with smooth edges that reduce irritation. Metal braces can sometimes cause discomfort because of their metal components. Both types effectively straighten your teeth.
