Smile Confidently With Ceramic Braces

April 5, 2017

Ceramic braces fuse new orthodontic technology with traditional methods to help bring your teeth into alignment. Your orthodontist will most likely suggest traditional braces for younger patients all things being equal, but the ceramic braces are an excellent option for older teenagers and adults with cosmetic concerns.

Similar To Traditional Braces

Ceramic braces, also known as clarity braces, are very similar to traditional braces. They are used to treat a variety of dental concerns including:

  • Overly crowded teeth
  • Widely spaced teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Overbite
  • Underbite

For decades, traditional braces were the only option, but with the advancement of technology in orthodontics, older teenagers and adults with cosmetic concerns now have more options for better comfort and appearance. Ceramic braces use clear brackets and a clear wire (during the early stages) and are ideal for image conscientious patients.

Advantages

  • Precision Cut: Every bracket is precision cut to give you best possible results during your orthodontic treatment.
  • Discreet: The biggest advantage to selecting ceramic braces.

Disadvantages

Ceramic braces are bulkier and more brittle than traditional braces. As a result, they are commonly used only on upper teeth with a traditional (or a different type) braces on the bottom. In addition, the bulkier brackets require a greater attention to hygiene.
