West Coastal Florida’s Best Resource For Clear Ceramic Braces

Get the smile you’ve always wanted with clear braces from Hess Orthodontics. Find out how you can treat yourself with five-star care from South Tampa’s highest-rated orthodontist.

What Are Clear Braces?

When most people hear the term “clear braces,” they may be imagining Invisalign or other clear aligners. But ceramic braces — “clear braces” — are a different product. Ceramic braces are more similar to traditional braces, but they are less obtrusive in your mouth, and they are made of transparent materials that are less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces.

With clear braces, it’s never too late to get the full and natural smile of your dreams. Schedule a consultation now to discover your options.

What Are Clear Braces?

Whether it’s for health benefits, lifestyle goals, or even a glow up, there is a lot to consider when starting your journey to an impeccable smile.
Clear braces are revolutionizing cosmetic orthodontics. With clear braces, you will experience less pain during treatment, although some people do report mild irritation at first. Plus, many patients don’t need to wear rubber bands or appliances because clear braces use self-ligating brackets to hold the archwire in place.

Clear braces also have longer-lasting results that promote an overall healthier facial structure. Some patients experience lifelong effects in as little as ten weeks. And adult users may find having an energetic smile helps them look younger and feel more confident.

During your first appointment, we will take thorough evaluations of your mouth and lifestyle and curate an exclusive treatment for you. If you are not the right candidate for clear braces, we also offer Damon Braces and clear aligners.

The Clear Braces Advantage

When you’re considering orthodontic treatment, it’s vital to get the most effective option for your condition. While clear braces are a fantastic treatment plan, they are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Every treatment plan comes loaded with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.

Quick Treatment with Fewer Visits

Clear braces can provide treatment quicker than classic braces. And you won’t have to search your schedule for a time to come in because clear braces require fewer appointments.


Clear braces have a low profile design that is less conspicuous than traditional braces. They offer a more discrete treatment without visible metal or elastic ties.

Easy to Clean

Clear braces don’t use hard-to-maintain elastomeric rings. So your braces are easy to maintain throughout their lifecycle.

A Lifetime of Smiles

Sometimes smiles aligned with metal braces relapse after their treatment. Following careful guidelines, clear braces are more likely to retain over your lifetime.
