Powerful, Discrete Treatment

Davillier Orthodontics is proud to offer clear braces — a treatment with the strength of braces and the low profile of clear aligners.

Our comfortable ceramic material blends right in with your smile.

What Are Ceramic Braces?

Ceramic braces offer a cutting-edge solution to orthodontic issues, marrying power with style. Operating on the same principles as traditional braces, they offer the additional advantage of near-invisible ceramic brackets!

These clear braces blend seamlessly with your teeth. That means they’re far less visible, so you get a powerful orthodontic treatment while keeping a low profile.

How They Work

Clear braces apply pressure to your teeth, gradually guiding them into the perfect spot. You’ll start with a free consultation at our Suffolk or Virginia Beach office.

After a series of digital scans of your mouth (say goodbye to goopy impressions!) and a few X-rays for a detailed picture of your smile, Dr. Davillier will examine your smile. He’ll create a personalized treatment plan for you based on your medical records and analysis.

Once we’ve customized your clear braces, Dr. Davillier will attach the brackets. Again, you can forget about the time-consuming process of the past — it’s all digital.

You'll visit our clinic for periodic adjustments to ensure your teeth move correctly. These visits are usually pretty quick and are an essential part of your treatment!

The Benefits of
Clear Braces

Clear braces offer a range of advantages that make them a popular choice for orthodontic treatment. Let's explore the benefits of choosing clear braces:

Discreet Appearance

Clear braces are virtually invisible, allowing you to straighten your teeth without the appearance of traditional braces. You can smile and interact with confidence throughout your treatment.

Customized Alignment

Dr. Davillier tailors your clear braces treatment to address your unique dental needs. Whether you have crooked teeth, gaps, overbite, underbite, or crossbite, clear braces can effectively correct these issues, providing you with the smile you desire.

Exceptional Comfort

Clear braces are designed with your comfort in mind. The smooth ceramic brackets are less likely than their metal counterparts to irritate your cheeks and gums, ensuring a comfortable orthodontic experience throughout your treatment.

Stain Resistance

The materials used in clear braces are resistant to staining, allowing your braces to maintain their transparency. This ensures that your smile remains on display during your orthodontic journey.

Durability & Reliability

Clear braces are constructed from high-quality, durable materials that you can trust. You’ll have confidence knowing that your braces will effectively guide your teeth into their desired positions to give you long-lasting results.

Clear Vs. Metal Braces. What’s Right for Me?

Choosing the right type of braces is a big decision in your orthodontic journey. Both clear and traditional braces offer effective solutions for aligning teeth, but they come with different aesthetic and functional considerations.

Understanding the differences can help you make an informed choice that aligns with your lifestyle, preferences, and orthodontic needs.


Designed for discretion, clear braces use transparent or tooth-colored brackets that blend in with your teeth, making them an ideal choice for adults and teens concerned about the appearance of metal braces.

Known for their durability and effectiveness, traditional metal braces are more visible but offer a colorful way to personalize your smile with different elastic band colors.

Treatment Efficiency

While clear braces are as effective as traditional braces for many orthodontic issues, adjustments may need to be more gradual to prevent damage to the ceramic brackets, potentially extending treatment time slightly.

Metal braces are incredibly efficient at correcting a wide range of orthodontic problems, including more complex cases. Their robustness allows for potentially faster treatment times in some scenarios.

Maintenance & Care

The brackets for clear braces can be larger and might require more meticulous oral hygiene to prevent staining and maintain their discreet appearance.

Metal braces are less susceptible to staining, and while they also require diligent oral hygiene, they are generally more forgiving to the rigors of everyday wear and tear.
