Hi Radian!

I had clear braces on top and metal ones on my lowers when I was in my teens.
You can see them anyway, does not matter if clear or metal. Only the clear ones tend to look dirty very fast. So I would recommend a full metal installation.
 
Good luck and lots of fun with your braces.

Any other opinion ?

Hi Radian,

just to add - from distances where you don't recognise clear braces as braces, clear braces often look like dirty or damaged teeth. If you come close enough to the braces wearer to see that's it's not damaged teeth, you see that it's clear braces. So you only have to decide - if you want to hide your braces, forget it and choose all metal. If you're goal is that you prefer the look of clear braces over the look of metal braces to be seen on you, then choose clear upper braces. My personal opinion - I would choose full metal.

Good luck for your braces journey ;-)

Old-fashioned Hawley style active hawleys if possible. Everything else is visible (even invisalign attachments with the aligners out), and lingual give you a lisp - so want something I can take out for meetings with clients and have nobody be the wiser, and then put back in.
