Ceramic Braces

Do you feel uncomfortable sharing your smile with others because of crowded, misaligned, crooked teeth? Braces offer one solution to straighten the teeth and create a beautiful smile, but many people are worried about the appearance of wearing metal brackets and wires. Ceramic braces are an alternative you might consider. Ceramic braces are similar to traditional braces in the way they work. The unique difference is that they use brackets that are tooth-colored or clear, making them blend in with the teeth a little more compared to metallic wires and brackets. These materials are often preferred since ceramic braces aren’t as noticeable as metal braces, helping you feel less self-conscious about wearing them.

Benefits of Ceramic Braces

The main benefit of choosing ceramic braces is that they aren’t as visible as metal materials. If you are looking for an orthodontic treatment that is less visible and still offers fast, effective results, then ceramic is a great option to consider. Compared to Invisalign, ceramic braces move the teeth faster, and they are more effective in severe cases of teeth misalignment. Ceramic materials don’t interfere with imaging tests, and they give you the benefit of choosing almost any color imaginable. But you also need to compare your options with other orthodontic treatments as well. For example, ceramic braces tend to be a little more expensive compared to traditional braces. Additionally, the brackets are a little bigger, which requires a little more work to clean around the brackets thoroughly. Ceramic isn’t quite as durable as metal, which increases the likelihood that the braces could break and need repair during the treatment.

Are You a Candidate for Ceramic Braces?

Adults are often the best candidates for ceramic braces since the permanent teeth are finished growing. In most cases, a quick orthodontic correction can be done, reducing the chances of brackets breaking. These braces are recommended if you want the treatment to be subtle, which is why they are often the treatment of choice for people who don’t want to draw attention to their orthodontic treatment.
