There’s no need to relive your middle school “metal mouth” days (if you don’t want to!). Clear aligners are the invisible answer to your crooked teeth woes. Comfortable, discreet, and faster than traditional orthodontics, with invisible aligners you can go about your daily life with the confidence that no one will know you are wearing braces.
What Are Invisible Braces?
The term “invisible braces” can have a few different meanings. In general, braces are dental appliances that straighten or move teeth to improve their look and functionality.
For years, traditional metal braces were the standard of care for fixing bite problems and straightening crooked teeth. Today, orthodontists have a number of tools at their disposal to improve smiles with almost invisible, fully customizable treatment plans.
Invisible braces are a type of orthodontia that uses barely-visible materials to align teeth, close gaps, and correct bite problems. Invisible or clear braces are the most popular choice for [adult braces] nowadays.

Invisible Options For Straightening Your Teeth
The orthodontists at Dr. Patty Miami offer a selection of effective, safe, and comfortable invisible and clear braces to help you achieve an irresistible smile without interfering with your lifestyle.
Clear aligners are removable trays that apply gentle pressure to your teeth to gradually move them. Clear aligners are the #1 invisible braces choice at Dr. Patty Miami because they are virtually invisible, so you won’t have to worry about unsightly and uncomfortable wires or brackets cemented to your teeth.
At Dr. Patty Miami, we are proud to offer the two highest-rated clear aligner options in the market: Invisalign and Clear Correct. Read on to learn more.
Invisalign® uses a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of completely clear, smooth, and comfortable plastic that you wear over your teeth.
Wearing Invisalign aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements that your orthodontist at Dr. Patty Miami plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners every few weeks, as indicated by your orthodontist, until your treatment is complete.

As Seen On
Why Choose Clear Correct Aligners?
With Clear Correct, your teeth can be straightened using a series of removable, custom, clear aligners. Each tray slowly moves your teeth until they are straight.
This invisible braces option will easily fit into your lifestyle and daily routine as perfectly as it fits onto your teeth – so there will be no need for you to make big lifestyle changes! The makers of Clear Correct will even replace lost or broken trays at no charge.
Clear Correct aligners were designed to be a non-intrusive treatment, allowing for flexibility in your wearing schedule. That being said, the more you use your aligners, the faster you will see results!
Problems That Clear Correct Addresses
- Crowding: Teeth that are positioned too closely together may become crooked, causing discomfort, pain or difficulty cleaning.
- Spacing: Tooth gaps are typically undesirable and can increase the chance of tooth decay.
- Crossbite and overbite: Outside of cosmetic concerns, cross and overbites can contribute to dietary and dental issues.
Your teeth are one of the first things that people notice about you, so let the professionals at Dr. Patty Miami help you make them shine! Call to book a consultation.
We also offer clear braces options for adults and teens that want to straighten their smiles more discreetly and comfortably than with traditional braces:
Ceramic or clear braces are similar to traditional braces but are made from tooth-colored materials to make them less visible than metal brackets. Both metal and ceramic braces move your teeth by exerting constant yet gentle pressure for extended periods of time.
Pros And Cons Of Ceramic Braces
- Subtler and more discreet than traditional braces
- Less expensive than clear aligners such as Invisalign
- Smoother and more comfortable than traditional metal braces
- Easier to remove after the treatment finishes
- Just as effective as regular braces
- Tend to stain more easily than metal braces, so it’s important to avoid dark
beverages like coffee and wine during your treatment
- More likely to break off than traditional braces
Six Month Smiles®
Six Month Smiles® uses specialized clear braces to straighten and align teeth quickly and safely in an average of just six months. Unlike metal braces, these tooth-colored braces are barely visible, and they use low force to move teeth more comfortably.

Lingual or Incognito braces are an orthodontic treatment similar to traditional metal braces – the only difference is that they are attached to the back of the teeth, making them virtually invisible unless your mouth is wide open.
These braces are a great option for patients that want to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth without noticeable wires or brackets. Lingual braces use the same bracket-wire system as conventional braces, applying continuous pressure to achieve an attractive, perfectly aligned smile.

Mail-order aligners have become a popular trend over the past few years. The idea behind these treatments is for patients to straighten their teeth at home, without having to visit the orthodontist.
The companies that make mail-order invisible aligners claim that their braces can fix a variety of dental problems faster and at half the cost of professional orthodontia.
The Problem With Mail-Order Braces
There are several issues with mail-order aligners, including limited treatment options and less than ideal results. But the biggest problem with mail-order aligners is that they can cause serious oral health consequences, so much so that the American Association of Orthodontists and American Dental Association have spoken out against do-it-yourself orthodontia.
Dangers Of Mail-Order Aligners Include:
- No comprehensive exam or X-rays before treatment
- No regular supervision from a dental professional
- Don’t address complex misalignment issues
- If not done correctly, can lead to irreversible tooth and gum damage
Like most things, with mail-order aligners you get what you pay for. If you want to get beautifully straightened teeth, your best and only option should always be a professional orthodontist.
