At SLS Orthodontics, we understand how important it is to feel confident about your smile as well as your orthodontic treatment. That is why we offer ceramic braces to patients seeking a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Our dentist recommends ceramic braces for patients of all ages in Coral Springs.
Ceramic braces, also known as clear braces, use brackets and wires to gently guide your teeth into the desired alignment. The brackets and wires are used to apply consistent pressure to your teeth, shifting them in your jaw, typically over a time period of about one to two years. Ceramic brackets are the same size and shape as traditional metal brackets, but they are made from transparent, high-strength ceramic materials.
Ceramic braces are used to treat a variety of orthodontic issues, such as misaligned teeth, crowded teeth, irregularly spaced teeth, overbite or underbite. Braces can also be used to help correct jaw alignment issues and TMJ disorders.
Ceramic braces function the same way as traditional metal braces. However, our dentist may offer ceramic braces for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues. Our dentist will discuss your options with you during your consultation.
Another difference between ceramic and metal braces is staining, due to their clear or tooth-colored ligatures (the elastics that hold the wire to the brackets) can become discolored. Be sure to avoid dark or highly pigmented foods and beverages. If the ligatures are stained, we can replace them during your next checkup.
Clear braces and ceramic braces are the same thing and are both made from clear or tooth-colored materials. It is important to note that clear braces are not the same as clear aligners such as Invisalign or ClearCorrect. Clear braces use brackets and wires to reposition your teeth whereas clear aligners use transparent plastic trays. Be sure to discuss all your treatment options and preferences with our orthodontist.
Your treatment costs will depend on your needs. Schedule a consultation with our orthodontist for a complete breakdown of your treatment options and costs. Be sure to ask about our flexible financing options. We also accept most insurance plans for your convenience.
