Clear braces can refer to two things. So when you wonder what are clear braces, this can either mean traditional ‘train track’ braces that are clear instead of metal – or it can refer to the Invisalign clear aligners system.
Clear ‘Train Tracks’
Traditional braces are made from metal and as such have a silver steel colour that can be seen at the brackets which attach to the teeth and the metal wire that goes through them. However a clear version of this is also available (also known as clear ceramic) where the brackets are actually white to blend in with your teeth, making them look ‘clear’. Along with this, the wire can also be transparent or different coloured to be less noticeable. As these clear braces are technically fixed braces, they will always be noticeable to a degree – but they are more discreet and inconspicuous compared to traditional silver metal braces.
The modern and truly clear and invisible option, Invisalign are a system of clear trays that cover your teeth and are barely noticeable. Each tray is fully removable – so you can remove them to eat and drink and to brush and floss your teeth as normal. Like the name suggests, Invisalign truly are invisible as they are made from a transparent plastic-like material (their patented SmartTrack material) that allows you to straighten your smile in secret. So when people ask us what are clear braces, we ensure they know all about this modern and innovative Invisalign system so they can straighten their smile without anyone noticing!
What are clear braces?
Orthodontics (teeth straightening) has come a long way over the years, resulting in us being able to offer clear braces and Invisalign here at Dental on the Banks. In fact our Invisalign specialists Dr. Ramtin and Dr. Damon are among the top 300 Invisalign specialists in the world!

I know this may sound silly but when I first started my business, a lot of self-criticism made it’s way into my world and I believed people didn’t want to work with me because of my smile, I used to be so nervous meeting a new client because of how ‘goofy’ my teeth were. That takes me back, ‘goofy’ was a reference I would answer to back in school days. I’d lived with this insecurity my whole life. If I knew the person I wanted to be, the business I wanted to run, I had to do one thing. GET MY TEETH DONE!”
I approached Dental On The Banks shortly after they opened and I was stunned. Not just at the beautiful appearance but how the price was really no different to the average dental practice in Bournemouth and Poole, yet at Dental On The Banks – you’re not waiting half an hour later than you’re appointment time and there aren’t any creeks when you walk to the waiting room.
The service at Dental On The Banks is, in its best description, having afternoon tea at Fortnum & Mason. Let me talk this through. At the bottom we have the most perfectly homemade scones, still warm. You walk into DOTB and you’re greeted with the warmest smiles and service – your coffee is served quite literally but DOTB go a step further than Fortnum & Mason in this case and print your gorgeous face on the coffee. I know, crazy!
Let’s move up a level, those perfectly cut sandwiches – have you ever seen anything like it? I have. Dental On The Banks are pure perfectionists at what they do, they finely tune every tiny detail of your treatment, probably even details you didn’t notice yourself. Now we have the cutest little cakes, ok so you may have to cut out cake on your treatment plan; just kidding. With Invisalign you can remove your tray, eat, clean your teeth and pop your tray back in, nothing is coming between you and those cakes! Lastly, the endless sandwiches your waiter / waitress continuously comes around with, unlimited – THAT is the aftercare you get at Dental On The Banks. You aren’t a number, you are a name, a name that they remember and a name that they want to be in contact with and truly care about. Your teeth are like diamonds to DOTB.
That’s why I will never go to another dentist again. I‘ve met my match and you cannot begin to understand how amazing I feel when I smile now. No fear or self-criticism holding me back, your wellbeing is much more than you possibly think and it deserves more attention and investment than you possibly give it. Do not let anything hold you back from smiling and being your best version. After lockdown, please locate me at Fortnum & Mason showing off my Dental On The Banks smile.”
From my first meeting with Dr Damon and Dr Junaid, I knew that I was in the very best hands to have my dental treatment and the smile that I had dreamed about for a long time. It did not disappoint! The first class service, attention to detail and professionalism at DOTB was outstanding, so much so that my daughter is also about to embark upon her dental journey with the superb team
After having composite bonding on my front teeth at a different dentist abroad, I really wasn’t impressed by the results. I was so glad to discover Dental on the Banks and their work! They were able to completely re-do my composite bonding to get my teeth looking exactly as I had wanted them to! I went in disappointed with the look of my teeth and after just one appointment I was leaving with a smile I couldn’t wait to show off! With such a beautiful clinic and amazing and friendly team of staff, I now want to go here for anything to do with my teeth going forward. Thank you!
