In the past, the only orthodontic option patients can avail of is metal brackets and wires. Aside from being highly conspicuous, it is also uncomfortable to wear, especially after having it adjusted. Plus, patients need to spend a year or two wearing the appliance before they can achieve favorable results.
Fortunately, in today’s time, when most things can be achieved much more quickly, there are also new orthodontic treatments introduced. One of these options includes an appliance that follows and works like the traditional approach but in a more discreet way. We at SLS Orthodontics introduce Ceramic Braces!
What are Ceramic Braces?
Also referred to as clear braces, ceramic braces are orthodontics tool that offers a more inconspicuous approach to teeth straightening. Instead of using the traditional materials, this new option utilize tooth-colored components to blend with the teeth. Despite the adjustments made to the materials, patients can be sure that the treatment still works effectively in correcting excessive spaces, misalignment, overcrowding, and malocclusions.
