What are Ceramic Braces?
The field of orthodontics has evolved over the years to give patients more options and address some of the most common concerns that keep families and adults from pursuing their much-needed orthodontic care. One of the biggest barriers to braces has been the appearance of traditional metal braces.
Ceramic braces are considered more attractive by many teenagers and adults. The components are made of a clear composite material, so the braces are less noticeable. .
At Georgetown Orthodontics, Dr. Bentley has selected Clarity™ braces for his patients who want ceramic braces. These braces are preferred by our practice because they are comfortable and are practically invisible. You may need a combination of traditional metal and ceramic for your treatment plan, but the metal components are placed inconspicuously.
Why Should I Consider Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces offer the same benefits as traditional braces, but you may want to consider ceramic braces if you believe that wearing metal braces will make you feel more self-conscious about your appearance.
Your ceramic braces will not develop stains if you follow some easy steps, such as brushing and flossing, refraining from smoking, avoiding foods and drinks that may stain the braces and attend follow-up visits with Dr. Bentley regularly.
Ceramic braces are very durable thanks to the special materials that are used in their manufacturing process.
Are Clarity™ Braces Right For Me?
If you want orthodontic treatment, but do not like how metal braces look, ceramic braces may be the right option for you. The braces are very difficult to see without close inspection, and you will get the same amazing results as you would with traditional metal braces.
