ClearSmile Brace uses traditional techniques with new technology to reduce orthodontic treatment times and improve the appearance of the braces. The ClearSmile Brace wires are coated white (rather than being silver) and uses a material (Ni-Ti) with shape-memory. This shape memory means the wire will return to its original shape regardless of how it’s bent. This creates the gentle forces used to move your teeth to the desired position. ClearSmile Brace is mainly used to straighten the front 10 teeth for aesthetic reasons. ClearSmile Brace uses clear brackets, as opposed to metal brackets. The wire used in a ClearSmile Brace is also coated with a tooth coloured material. As a result, ClearSmile Brace is less visible than traditional fixed braces.
