Confident smiles for your lifestyle
A treatment option that will straighten your teeth quickly and effectively, provide a beautiful appearance during treatment, and address your specific orthodontic needs.
Radiance Plus is a clear orthodontic solution that allows you to confidently live your life while your teeth are being straightened. These exceptionally clear braces are appropriate for nearly every type of orthodontic need, and work continuously throughout treatment. Whether you’re at work or at play, Radiance Plus delivers your ideal smile with no interruption to your treatment or lifestyle.
Radiance Plus™ is the clearest ceramic twin bracket available, proven to be much clearer than other monocrystalline or polycrystalline ceramic systems. Each Radiance Plus™ bracket is created from a single crystal of pure grown sapphire – one of the hardest materials in nature, second only to diamond. The crystal is honed and heat polished into a remarkably strong and beautiful bracket that’s nearly invisible on the teeth. A recent study appearing in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics rates Radiance Plus™ as the most translucent of all monocrystalline brackets tested.
Radiance Plus’s delivers exceptional rotational control, thanks to optimum mesial-distal width on the maxillary centrals and cuspids. This greater anterior control allows accurate results without sacrificing aesthetics. Tie wing fracture risk is reduced, tie-ability is improved, and latex-free Visual Positioning Aids (VPAs) allow simple, accurate bracket placement every time, without the staining risk associated with other color coding systems.
Radiance Plus’s heat treated, monocrystalline formation gives it a solid core structure, and a proprietary heat polishing process creates just enough energy to smooth away any micro voids or flaws that could compromise the bracket’s integrity. Sliding mechanics are improved, and the bracket resists torque fracture more than three times that of polycrystalline brackets. Increased tie wing thickness enhances its solid body, and a patented Quad Matte™ base provides amazing bond strength.
