We are so fortunate to be able to provide our patients with options when it comes to their orthodontic work and traditional braces. Sometimes, the bite issues are significant enough that brackets and wires are necessary to make the movements needed, but the patient is unhappy with the dark metal coloring. Ceramic braces are a great option. Ceramic brackets are colored to be nearly invisible in your mouth while still working like a traditional bracket. Our team at MVP Smiles can help you have the look you want while keeping your treatment more discreet, you don’t have to have the visible sign of braces.
Sometimes referred to as clear braces, ceramic brackets are designed to blend in and therefore hide in your mouth. Mixed with a clear wire and bands, and most people will never know you have them. Patients love ceramic braces because:
Common Reasons for Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces can be used to correct a number of orthodontia issues. This can include overcrowding, closing gaps, straightening and improving your bite. Ceramic braces offer a lot of positive attributes, but they may not be right for every situation. The effectiveness of clear brackets is limited, metal braces are still preferred for extreme bite issues. We are happy to review and discuss whether we think ceramic braces are right for you.
Braces are different from most other dental treatments because they are a long term, daily commitment. Most patients wear their braces for an average of two years. While wearing your braces, it changes the way you look, alters your diet and forces you to think more about your hygiene routine. We want you to have the braces or other orthodontic appliance that works best for you. This doesn’t just apply to the end result, but to your quality of life while wearing them. Today, we are lucky enough to have options, and working together, we can find the right option for you.
