Clarity™ Braces

If you’d prefer a more subtle approach to your orthodontic treatment, King Orthodontics offers Clarity™ clear braces.

What is the difference between Clarity™ braces and metal braces?

There’s not much difference between Clarity™ braces and traditional metal braces other than the fact that they’re clear. Clarity™ uses brackets, wires, and elastic ties and offers the same kind of careful positioning as metal brackets. In fact, the only difference is in the material that’s used to create the brackets.

What are the advantages and disadvantages to Clarity™ braces?

Clarity Braces Pittsburgh

Clarity™braces are an attractive option, but they’re not right for everyone. The doctors of King Orthodontics will let you know if Clarity™ will fit your lifestyle.

Advantages:

  • Appearance: Clarity™ are much less visible than traditional metal braces.
  • Confidence: A patient’s self-confidence is very important to us! We find that the choice of Clarity™ braces can help make some patients feel more confident about their appearance while in treatment.

Disadvantages:

  • More Fragile: Because Clarity™ brackets are made of a different material, they are more fragile than metal brackets and typically only used on the front teeth.
  • Discoloration: Clarity™ braces use clear elastic ties. Eating certain foods, drinking liquids like coffee, tea, or red wine, or smoking can slightly discolor those ties. If you have questions about how to avoid discoloration, ask a member of our clinical team.

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. Babb is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. Babb on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. Babb is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
