ClearVu® Cosmetic Brackets
The new standard in ceramic bracket design
With ClearVu Cosmetic Brackets, TPO® delivers a revolutionary base technology that provides a reliable bond and safe, comfortable debond, virtually eliminating the stress typically associated with debonding. ClearVu Cosmetic Brackets also deliver enhancements to Personalized Color-Matching Technology® exclusive to TPO, offering a bracket that is ideal for all patients, especially those who request but don’t qualify for aligner treatment.
It’s all about the base
What sets ClearVu Cosmetic Brackets apart is the patented polymer base. The mesh design closely replicates a metal base, while the polymer material provides a protective barrier between the ceramic bracket and the enamel. Since the base flexes upon debonding, the bracket removes cleanly without the need to fracture the bracket or rely on special tools.
Smoother, stronger, more reliable
ClearVu Cosmetic Brackets are precision-engineered using an advanced injection-molded process that produces a smooth, strong, reliable ceramic bracket. Unlike machined ceramics, the ClearVu surface is virtually flawless, without the micro-fractures that lead to breakage. Smooth, rounded edges at the ends of the archwire slot create less friction between the bracket and archwire, resulting in a ceramic bracket that performs like metal.
The ultimate combination of beauty and performance
ClearVu Cosmetic Brackets are made from the most advanced ceramic material available in a design ideally suited for the most effective, efficient treatment possible. The high-density material provides for an extremely smooth surface void of imperfections, providing enhanced fracture resistance and patient comfort. A proven true-twin bracket design delivers multiple ligation options and predictable results. Deep tie wing undercuts with substantial overhang provide for secure ligation. True ball-end cuspid and bicuspid hooks make elastic placement easy for your patients.
ClearVu Cosmetic Readi-Base® Brackets with eXact® Pre-Applied Adhesive
Efficiency, convenience and control come together in TPO brackets with eXact Pre-Applied Adhesive. A distinctive X-shape holds a uniform volume of adhesive to ensure superior bond strength with minimal flash clean up around the base of the bracket. Exact delivery of the adhesive means reduced prep time, precise application, less clean up and maximized chair time.
The perfect match for any patient
Only TP Orthodontics Aesthetic Brackets feature an exclusive Personalized Color-Matching Technology. Brackets absorb wavelengths of light and blend to adjust to the color of the teeth they’re on.
What does it do?
- Proprietary ceramic material closely duplicates optical properties of natural teeth
- Absorbs certain wavelengths of light, allowing only natural tooth color to show
- Creates look of transparency that matches virtually any tooth color
How does it work?
Optical properties, including color and translucency, vary widely among patients’ teeth. The high density ceramic material consists of microstructural elements that are specially engineered to provide a perfect combination of these optical properties. When light and color are diffused by the bracket, the bracket blends with the surrounding enamel – causing it to be visually imperceptible.
When compared with 18 different brackets, the TPO bracket with Personalized Color-Matching Technology was the only brand that showed a good relationship with the color of natural teeth regarding all color parameters. It was also the only brand rated as “visually imperceptible”. 1
