The Clear Path to a Perfect Smile

Discover the elegance of clear braces at Pierce Orthodontics. Our Mt. Pleasant patients love the low-profile looks of this cutting-edge treatment.

Dr. Tim will combine the efficiency of traditional braces with the subtlety of ceramic materials to give you a treatment that works just as well as metal braces, but has the low profile and style of top-of-the-line ceramics that blend right in with your teeth!

What Are Clear Braces?

Clear braces offer a modern twist to classic metal braces. Crafted from translucent ceramic, they merge seamlessly with your teeth so you get an orthodontic solution that's as discreet as it is effective.

Strong & Durable

They may look delicate, but clear braces are tough and resilient. Made from top-tier ceramic materials, they're built to endure all your daily activities while ensuring your orthodontic progression stays on track.

Designed for Today's Lifestyle

Clear braces allow you to get the orthodontic treatment you need without being the center of attention. While structurally similar to metal braces, their clear or tooth-colored style keeps them in the background so you can live your life confidently.

The Process at Pierce

Let’s take a look at the journey to the best version of your smile with clear braces at our Mt. Pleasant office.

Your Consultation

Your journey with clear braces starts with comprehensive X-rays and dental photographs. Dive deep into your treatment options with Dr. Tim and the Pierce Orthodontics team.

Putting Your Braces On

If Dr. Tim determines that clear braces are the right treatment for you, he’ll expertly place your brackets, wires and—if necessary—rubber bands. He’ll also review the ins and outs of braces care during this session.


Regular adjustments keep your treatment on the right path. Typically spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart, these sessions are key to ensuring your smile is shaping up as envisioned.

All Done!

Clear Braces vs. Metal Braces


While metal braces are undeniably effective, clear braces blend right in with your teeth while providing the same high-quality of care.

Comfort & Feel

Designed for optimal comfort, clear braces minimize potential irritation since the ceramic of the clear braces has smoother edges and is less likely to damage your gums or lips.

Treatment Duration

Since metal braces are sturdier, they can withstand more pressure, leading to fewer adjustments and slightly shorter treatment times. But with clear braces, your treatment process is stealthier and more comfortable.

Are Clear Braces Right for Me?

Clear braces are increasingly popular, but they might not be for everyone. Dr. Tim will provide a personalized recommendation during your free consultation based on your needs and goals.

Let’s look at some factors you should consider when deciding if clear braces are right for you:

Aesthetic Appeal

Clear braces offer a discreet alternative to traditional braces if you’re interested in a treatment that won’t draw attention to itself.

Treatment Complexity

Clear braces are great for all sorts of orthodontic issues, from mild to more complex cases. Yet, traditional braces might be the way to go for certain severe cases.

Maintenance & Care

Resistant to staining, clear braces can discolor if neglected. They're ideal if you're committed to excellent oral care and steer clear of staining food and beverages.
