Ceramic braces are a wonderful alternative for people who are worried about having metal in their mouth, such as with traditional metal braces. The low-key, subtle look of ceramic braces makes them a great choice for adults whom may not want the attention that can come with more noticeable orthodontic appliances. Straight A Orthodontics offers ceramic braces to residents of Greensboro, NC.
Ceramic braces are a form of traditional braces in which metal is replaced with ceramic. Ceramic mimics the look of natural teeth and provides a much more subtle appearance than traditional metal braces. This option allows people to get the straighter smile they desire without sacrificing their current smile in the process. Ceramic braces are effective, safe and low-profile.
Like metal braces, ceramic braces consist of brackets, wires, and elastics. However, in this case, there are some additional options. The brackets can be specially colored to match natural teeth or can be made completely clear, the choice is yours. Also, you may choose a natural-colored elastic or clear elastic to complete the subtle look of your braces.
Ceramic braces offer the same benefits as metal braces in that they straighten your teeth, get rid of gaps and can fix some alignment issues. Some people think that ceramic braces are more brittle than metal braces because of the nature of ceramic. However, ceramic braces are made using advanced alloys, which result in the same level of durability as metal braces. In addition to those similarities, ceramic braces are less visible than metal braces.
If you’re considering braces and haven’t chosen to go through with it because of the appearance of metal braces, consider ceramic as an excellent option. Ceramic braces can be ideal for adults who want to get a straighter smile, but do not want the look of metal braces. Ceramic braces are a great way to improve your oral hygiene and get a more beautiful smile.
