Clear Braces

Most teens and adults are reluctant to get the orthodontic care they need due to the appearance of orthodontic appliances. That’s why we offer clear braces, which are much less noticeable than metal braces, but still give patients a smile they deserve.

Clear aligners are not the same as clear braces. Clear aligners are plastic trays that you wear over your teeth, like a shell. Clear braces are just like metal braces, but they are almost invisible. Clear braces have many advantages. They are almost invisible, giving patients who do not want the look of traditional braces another alternative.

Despite all of the advantages, there are some disadvantages to consider, too. They are typically more costly than traditional metal braces, though we offer payment plans for all patients. They can also become discolored by tea, coffee, wine, and other foods. Smoking can also cause discoloration.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are a type of orthodontic treatment designed to straighten teeth and correct bite issues. They are similar to traditional metal braces but offer a more aesthetically pleasing alternative due to their translucent or tooth-colored brackets that blend in with the natural color of the teeth.

What Are Ceramic Braces?

Ceramic braces are composed of high-quality ceramic materials, making them durable and effective for aligning teeth. They consist of the following components:

  • Brackets: Made from clear or tooth-colored ceramic, these are attached to each tooth.
  • Archwires: Connect the brackets and apply pressure to move teeth into the desired position. These can be metal or coated with a tooth-colored material to further enhance the discreet appearance.
  • Ligatures: Small elastic bands or wires that hold the archwire to the brackets. These can also be clear or tooth-colored.

Ceramic braces offer a discreet and effective way to achieve a beautiful, straight smile. With proper care and regular dental visits, patients can enjoy the benefits of orthodontic treatment without the noticeable appearance of metal braces. If you’re considering braces and are concerned about aesthetics, ceramic braces might be the perfect solution for you.
