How can I decide if I want invisible (lingual) braces?

If you're considering invisible (lingual) braces, talk to your dentist about your options.

Invisible braces attach to the back of your teeth, making them virtually invisible. However, there are other braces that are also essentially undetectable. Clear, removable aligners like ClearConnect braces and Invisalign braces may work for you.

Clear or ceramic braces attached to brackets on the front of the teeth are more noticeable than invisible braces but less visible than metal braces.
