Concerned About the Look of Metal?
Many adult and teen patients want or need dental braces. But they often have reservations about the look of metal. As a full-service orthodontic practice, SouthShore Orthodontics offers an ideal solution to this cosmetic concern! Ceramic braces, or clear braces, are a more esthetic way to get a straight smile. Like traditional braces, this system of brackets and wires place gentle pressure on the teeth, gradually moving them until final results are reached. Ceramic braces correct common concerns like spacing, crowding, rotated and crooked teeth, and bite misalignment. The end result? A beautiful, confident smile to share with the world!
How Are Ceramic Braces Different From Traditional Metal Braces?
Ceramic braces and the process through which they work are very similar to traditional braces. However, these brackets and wires are clear or tooth-colored, and offer a less obvious look for your smile while wearing braces. Like other options, ceramic braces require meticulous daily homecare, routine dental cleanings and regular orthodontic visits to deliver the best results.
Why choose ceramic braces?
- Transparent appearance
- Natural-looking porcelain brackets
- Tooth-colored archwire
- Much less noticeable than metal
- Blend well with the smile
- Strong and durable
- Treat a number of orthodontic problems
