Dear Rachel E.,
Thank you for posting your question on RealSelf. I will do my best to provide an answer with the information provided.
First, I want to clarify that there are clear braces (look like metal braces but are ceramic and match the color of your teeth) and clear aligners (example: invisalign). Many people confuse the two. Regardless of the method that you choose, both options treat most cases as well as metal braces.
I recommend scheduling a consult with an orthodontic specialist. He or she will gather the necessary information to address your concerns and provide you with treatment options.
I hope that this helps and best of luck.
