If you’re looking for the durability of metal braces without the metallic appearance, we encourage you to explore our clear ceramic braces option at Reflections Orthodontics. With ceramic braces, each bracket is a clear or tooth-colored material for a less noticeable treatment. Many of our patients love how our ceramic braces remain discreet while improving the overall aesthetics of their smiles.
Are ceramic braces the right choice for you?
The biggest advantage of ceramic braces is that they are not as noticeable as metal braces. A clear bracket is placed on each tooth compared to metal brackets. Ceramic braces also will not stain or discolor, so you can be confident your smile will stay attractive throughout your entire treatment.
Many of our adult patients in Clarksville and Pleasant View prefer our ceramic braces as an aesthetically pleasing option for aligning their teeth. Since treatment time is often lower with braces as opposed to other methods, many adults can correct issues with their bite or alignment in a shorter amount of time.
Some additional benefits of our ceramic braces include:
- Less painful: Ceramic is smoother than metal and may reduce the feeling of pain in your gums and cheeks.
- Durable: Ceramic braces are highly durable and will last throughout your entire treatment without requiring replacement.
- Easy to remove: Once your treatment is complete, the process of removing your ceramic braces is simple and straightforward, so you can start enjoying your new smile quickly.
Before making any treatment decisions, it’s always best to consult with your orthodontist. Dr. Blackman or Dr. McCormack are happy to answer any questions you may have about treatment or other orthodontic concerns.
Treatment plans for clear braces
Ceramic braces help to align your teeth in a similar method to traditional braces. Dr. Blackman or Dr. McCormack will apply brackets to your teeth with a wire connecting them to gradually move your teeth into the correct position. At Reflections Orthodontics, the ceramic braces we use are smaller and more shallow than standard brackets to allow them to be even less noticeable.
As with metal braces, it’s best to avoid sticky or hard foods that may damage your brackets. While wearing your ceramic braces, be sure to practice good oral hygiene and brush and floss regularly to prevent the buildup of food in your brackets.
Cost of ceramic braces
The cost of ceramic braces will vary from patient to patient. Many insurance companies offer policies to cover your ceramic braces partially or completely. It’s important to remember that your ceramic braces are an investment in your teeth that will last for the rest of your life. By straightening your teeth, you may prevent future issues such as crowding or tooth decay, keeping your mouth healthier and potentially saving you money.
