Aesthetics are important to anyone who needs orthodontic treatment. Ceramic braces are transparent; these braces take on the natural color of the teeth. Ceramic braces help to create a more pleasing, less conspicuous look for orthodontic patients. The main advantage of ceramic braces is the aesthetic and cosmetic appeal. Although the brackets are clear they do not stain or change colors.
Traditional braces have come a long way over the years, from bands that wrapped around each tooth to miniature stainless steel brackets placed on the front of the tooth. Nowadays, contemporary braces are sleeker, smaller, and more comfortable. Stainless steel braces correct crooked, crowded teeth, a misaligned bite and jaw problems. The doctor and staff will assist you in choosing the brackets that will best meet your needs.
