12. Are there less noticeable braces? 

Clear BracesToday's braces are generally less noticeable than those of the past. Modern braces are much smaller and more comfortable, and there are many different types of braces to choose from depending upon patient preference. 

Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative for those who don't want their braces to show as much. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal (stainless steel) braces do. They are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth. 

Invisalign® can also give you the superior smile you've always wanted. It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. 

New wires are also less noticeable than those used in the past. The majority of today's wires are made of "high tech," space age materials that are considerably more comfortable for the aesthetic conscious patient.
