How Ceramic Braces Work

So, they're clear, but how do they work? The magic is in the details! The brackets may look different, but they work just like metal braces to give you a stunning smile.

Your clear braces apply constant pressure to your teeth to gently shift them into straighter positions. The process starts with a consultation exam with Dr. McClaran. She'll assess your smile, listen to your goals, and create a one-of-a-kind plan for your treatment.

Once you decide to start treatment, Dr. McClaran will attach the clear brackets to your teeth with special glue. Next, she'll insert a thin wire to guide your teeth into place.

With regular check-ups and adjustments at our Nolensville office, you'll have a smooth treatment process and a beautiful, confident smile.
