A Clear Choice for a Brighter Smile

Clear braces are perfect for anyone, no matter their age, looking for a less noticeable option to straighten their teeth. If you're exploring orthodontics for the first time or are looking for a subtle way to improve your smile, clear braces can be a great option.

Just like metal braces, clear braces are powerful tool to treat and correct bite issues. Dr. Funk will use ceramic braces to get you a smile that's not only straight but also healthy.

How Clear Braces Work

Clear braces work to straighten your teeth just like metal braces but stand out for their ability to blend in. They're designed to resolve misaligned bites while blending with your natural tooth color for a balance of strength and subtlety.

Clear Brackets

Dr. Funk carefully attaches tooth-colored brackets to your teeth. The brackets are made of ceramic so that they are strong enough to handle the pressures of realigning your teeth and blend with the color of your teeth. The brackets serve as anchors for the archwire, which works to shift your teeth into perfect alignment.


A thin, strong wire connects the clear brackets and applies consistent pressure to move your teeth gently into place. Dr. Funk makes the wire shape to your mouth's unique landscape to make sure your teeth move in the right direction, all while keeping things under the radar.

Strengths & Limitations

Clear braces are a powerhouse in straightening teeth and fixing bites while having a low profile. They're especially good for if you want to keep their treatment on the down-low. But they do have their kryptonite.

The materials used for clear braces might not be the best choice for very complex dental issues due to their material, and while they’re made to be stain-resistant, improper care can lead to staining.

Choosing What's Best for Your Smile

At Emily Funk Orthodontics, we're excited to guide you through your options for orthodontic treatment. Dr. Funk and our team will provide all the details you need to make an informed decision that aligns with your lifestyle, budget, and smile goals.

Looking at Visibility

Thanks to their tooth-colored materials, clear braces blend in with your teeth — so you can straighten your smile without drawing too much attention. They're perfect if you're looking for a more incognito approach to your treatment.

On the other hand, metal braces are more noticeable with their classic metallic look. They're the go-to for a reason, offering unmatched durability and a strong track record in straightening teeth.

Comparing Treatment Times

Both clear and metal braces are on a mission to move your teeth to their right spot. Clear braces, though, might need more attention during adjustments, possibly extending your treatment time a bit more compared to the fast lane often associated with metal braces.

Talking Maintenance

Keeping clear braces looking their best requires a keen eye on cleaning and steering clear of stain-causing foods and drinks. Metal braces are more laid-back, letting you worry less about stains as you move toward your goal.

Understanding Price

Clear braces often come with a higher price due to their aesthetic appeal and the materials used. But don't worry — we're all about clear, upfront pricing at Emily Funk Orthodontics.

We'll work together to find a payment plan that fits your budget, making your smile goals within reach.

Making Your Decision

The decision between clear and metal braces boils down to what's most important to you: the discreet appearance of clear braces or the tried-and-true efficiency and cost-effectiveness of metal braces.

Dr. Funk and our team are here to provide all the details you need to make an informed decision that aligns with your lifestyle, budget, and smile dreams.
