Invisalign aligners are the most aesthetic braces since they are almost invisible. This unique appliance uses custom-designed clear aligners made of plastic that act like invisible mouth guards. Every 2 weeks these aligners are replaced so that at the end of this orthodontic treatment you might have used between 18 and 30 aligners to completely straighten your teeth. When wearing this type of braces you have no special food restrictions. Invisalign braces can be removed only when brushing your teeth and maybe for some special occasion.

Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces when it comes to a bracket being attached to the front of each tooth and then they are wired together. In comparison to metal ones, the brackets of ceramic braces are either clear, tooth-colored or have tooth-colored wires to make the braces considerably less visible. They cost a bit more than the metal braces, and is necessary to be cleaned properly so that they stay invisible.

Lingual braces are similar to metal braces as well, excepting the fact that they attach to the back of the teeth and the connecting wire is also placed behind them. You must know that lingual braces are a choice that depend more on your dentist’s evaluation and opinion on your orthodontic needs, rather than your personal choice. They are nearly invisible but they can take a bit longer to adjust them and also to get used to them.

Regarding the prices, braces you choose in Costa Rica can start from €500 and the cost will depend on the type of orthodontic appliance you have to use for your dental problem.
