Ceramic Braces


smiling girl with ceramic braces.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:

•  They are Made with Clear Materials: Though ceramic brackets can be made of porcelain, most ceramic brackets are made out of a polycrystalline or monocrystalline alumina, which are big words to say a clear heavy duty material.
•  They are More Gentle in Your Mouth: Metal may be stronger, but many patients complain about their abrasiveness in their mouth. Ceramic braces do not have sharp points or edges to scrape or scratch your soft tissue.
•  They Are Strong: They are not metal, but ceramic braces are still strong and durable. Breakage can occur, but we can repair broken brackets in the rare instance they occur.
•  They Are More Discreet: Braces may have their place in adolescence, but many teens and most adults would prefer to not have their orthodontic work be noticeable. Ceramic brackets allow our patients the freedom of getting the corrective work done discreetly. We can even enhance this discretion with a clear wire and clear bands.


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.
