Here at SmileRight Orthodontics, we aim to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in orthodontic technology including ceramic braces. This is why we offer ceramic braces, which is a very good alternative to metal braces.
Ceramic braces are just as efficient as modern metal braces. They’re also less noticeable because they use clear brackets. Many of our adult patients prefer ceramic braces due to their cosmetic appeal.
Here are the main benefits of ceramic braces:
Our patients are always thrilled when we introduce them to ceramic braces because they’re a lot less visible. It’s an excellent option for anyone who is concerned about their appearance.
Although metal braces are unparalleled in terms of durability, ceramic braces are also made of strong, high quality material that do not easily crack or chip with proper care.
By nature, ceramic can be abrasive on tooth enamel. For patients with deeper bite, metal braces, not ceramic, may need to be placed on the lower teeth to prevent wear on the edges of the upper tooth. Most of our patients who opt for ceramic braces find this acceptable because the lower braces are less visible when smiling and speaking. Moreover, if a patient has a significant teeth alignment problem, metal braces may be needed.
