I recommend InVu. Patients plan their whole day around having their braces removed and we want that day to be as smooth as possible. InVu comes off cleanly and just always looks good.
InVu® Aesthetic Brackets
The perfect combination of performance and aesthetics
InVu Aesthetic Brackets don’t just look better, they perform better! Effectively combining beauty with strength, InVu Aesthetic Brackets are precision-engineered to offer superior strength, easier bonding, cleaner debonding, lower friction, and a more open design for flexible ligation options. This bracket offers reliability that means your treatment will go smoothly and on schedule, exactly as planned.
Smoother, stronger, more reliable
InVu Aesthetic Brackets are precision-engineered using an advanced injection-molded process that produces a smooth, strong, reliable ceramic bracket. Unlike machined ceramics, the InVu 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.
Low friction. Improved treatment time.
The difference in the InVu Aesthetic Bracket design is more than cosmetic. A low profile makes them especially comfortable to wear, and a low friction force results in better treatment times. Wedge-shaped lower anterior brackets minimize occlusal interference during treatment. Deep tie wings with rounded contours offer generous space for easy engagement of elastomers and make ligation easier. Ball-end cuspid hooks assure retention of elastics or elastomers and enhance patient comfort during treatment.
Proven bond strength
An exclusive base from TPO®
When it comes to bonding and debonding, nothing performs like InVu. That’s because InVu Aesthetic Brackets feature an exclusive molded polymer mesh base that protects teeth by preventing direct contact between the ceramic and tooth enamel. The base is designed using symmetric replication technology, creating a mesh surface that will flex during debonding while retaining most of the adhesive. Many other ceramic brackets must be fractured in order to debond. Not InVu. Unlike other ceramic brackets, InVu does not require compression or breaking and requires no special tools.
InVu 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

I haven’t seen any bracket do what InVu does. The way the brackets reflect light, they blend to adjust to the color of the teeth they’re on. InVu goes on easily, comes off easily and looks good. Those are the main things orthodontists look for.
Patients love InVu. They are the most invisible, colorless brackets on the market. Performance-wise, I treat cases with the same finish goals and timeframe as metal. I recommend InVu to my students at the University of Pennsylvania.
My patient response to InVu brackets has been really satisfying. They tell me their friends didn’t even realize they had braces until they pointed it out.
InVu blends into the tooth better than any other brackets. There is a difference in the look and I haven’t seen any staining. It’s a more durable bracket than the competitors I’ve used. I recommend InVu; they are the only aesthetic brackets we use.
I have 30 years of experience and had switched from one aesthetic bracket to another. I’m happy with how InVu looks and performs. The bracket is consistent with my philosophy of allowing the tooth color to show through. It’s translucent; it lets the color of teeth come out.
