Looking for straighter teeth, without the look of traditional braces?
Ceramic braces, also known as porcelain braces, are much less noticeable than metal braces. The only difference between the two is the material the brackets, which are bonded to each tooth, are made out of. The ceramic braces are virtually clear, the most visible part is the wire running through the brackets. Which is why this orthodontic choice is also referred to as invisible braces.
Adults and some teens prefer the look of our ceramic braces! There is also no difference in cost between ceramic and metal braces, so it is just a personal choice. If you are interested in a different alternative to braces, many adults also consider ClearCorrect, a brand of dental aligners, which are removable teeth straightening devices.
Ceramic braces work just like traditional braces and can be used to fix the following problems:
- Crowded, Overlapped teeth
- Too much spacing between teeth
- Turned or misplaced teeth
- Problems with the bite, including crossbite, open bite, underbite, and overbite
