Ceramic Braces - clarity 3M BracketsCeramic braces are quite different from the metal braces most people think about. The 3M Unitek Clarity braces have several features that make wearing them much more comfortable than conventional braces. With the stress concentrator, unique to the 3M Clarity brand, the patient has a much more positive and pleasant debonding experience. These braces offer the following benefits for patient comfort:

  • Dome-shaped design
  • Rounded corners
  • Smaller brackets
  • Unique stress concentrator


3M Unitek Clarity braces are also much more visibly appealing. The brackets are translucent and can’t be seen from far away. The design allows the brackets to blend with the natural teeth color so that they are barely visible. The material is stain-resistant and will not discolor during treatment.

Strong and Durable

3M Unitek Clarity braces are made to last and retain their integrity throughout treatment. The material is created through a unique injection-molding process that offers strength in a small profile. The ceramic is fine-grained and has sufficient space under the tie-wings to allow for needed adjustments and treatments throughout the duration of being worn. They are available with an APC Adhesive system to ensure they stay in place and the unique design allows for simple mesial-distal debonding.
