Ceramic braces are similar to conventional metal braces, but other people will have difficulty noticing them. Every smooth bracket is constructed from a translucent material to match with your teeth. Our team at Rosenberg Orthodontics suggests clear braces if you would like the advantages of conventional metal braces but with a more attractive look. If you're interested in getting more information on clear braces or researching other orthodontic choices, contact one of our Rosenberg Orthodontics in Hartford County to schedule an appointment.
Clear Ceramic Braces Reviews
"As a teenage boy going to high school I was hesitant about wearing braces but there was one tooth I wanted to fix. Dr. Rosenberg gave me a series of clear aligners to correct it. I was so excited because you couldn't see them when I was wearing them. Thanks to Dr. Rosenberg and his great staff for understanding and caring about the happiness (concerns) of teens!!!"- R. / Google / Jun 08, 2016
These braces are made from tooth-colored or clear mounts, making them harder to see compared to conventional metal braces. Therefore, they are a great option for older teens and adults who need to straighten their teeth. However, they do need more care than metal braces since they utilize transparent elastic bands, which may become stained or yellow if not regularly cleaned. With Invisalign (removable teeth aligning treatments), you face the chance of prolonging treatment when an aligner is missing or not used for the suggested period of time. Thus, ceramic braces are a wonderful choice since they provide continuous treatment.
What to Expect
On the day of your visit, we will clean and polish your teeth with a special cleaner. Then, we will brush on a sealant and the tips of your teeth will be gently smoothed if needed. The clear mounts will be positioned on each individual tooth. When the mounts are in their proper position, we will utilize a UV (ultraviolet) light to immediately harden the adhesive. This simple procedure should not result in any discomfort and attaches the brackets to your teeth. The last step is threading the wire through each of the brackets and using small white elastics to fasten the wire to the brackets. The whole procedure generally takes a few hours to complete.
Once your braces are set, you might have some discomfort as your gums, teeth, and lips adapt to your orthodontic treatment. Though a little discomfort is completely normal, these symptoms usually get better in time and may be fixed with dental wax that shields your mouth from the braces along with nonprescription pain medication.
Though the ceramic brackets do not easily stain, the elastics that are put on your braces may darken from particular drinks and food, such as berries, coffee, and much more. Consequently, our dental team recommends that you do your very best to limit these to keep up the overall look of these braces. Brushing after each meal may also preserve the appearance and your oral hygiene.
At your initial consultation, we will discuss your treatment choices and price estimates. Rosenberg Orthodontics takes a variety of payments and we will be able to help you to find medical financing. If you have dental insurance, a member of our staff will contact your insurance provider to verify your coverage and calculate your out-of-pocket expenses.
