What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces work like traditional metal braces. The primary difference is that ceramic braces are made from clear ceramic materials that blend in with your teeth.
Ceramic braces use clear brackets that attach to each tooth. An archwire connects the brackets, and elastics hold the archwire in place. The archwire and elastics are also usually clear or tooth-colored.
Once your ceramic braces are in place, they apply pressure to move your teeth into their proper positions. Your orthodontist may change the archwire and elastics during your visits to adjust the pressure as needed.
Are you a good fit for ceramic braces?
Patients of all ages can wear ceramic braces. You may be a good candidate for ceramic braces if you have orthodontic issues like:
- Overcrowded teeth.
- Gaps between teeth.
- Underbite or overbite.
- Crooked teeth.
Ceramic braces are much less noticeable than metal braces. You’ll feel more confident knowing people are focusing on your beautiful smile instead of your braces.
Ceramic braces use smaller, rounded brackets and ceramic materials that are less likely to poke and irritate your gums.
Ceramic braces are durable and designed to withstand daily wear throughout your treatment.
