Do you want straighter teeth? Here at the Blooming Prairie, MN, office of orthodontist Dr. Deborah Lien, we use a myriad of straightening options to tackle various issues related to bite alignment. However, if your smile requires complicated tooth or jaw movements to achieve a straighter appearance, then traditional braces will likely be the most effective solution. Additionally, if you want these braces to be less visible, then ceramic braces can offer you that added advantage—read on to learn how!
What are ceramic braces?
Traditional braces use a system of brackets and wires, which are bonded to the front of your teeth to apply just the right amount of pressure to shift teeth into the proper position. Traditional braces can treat everything from crooked teeth and unevenly spaced smiles to crowding, overbites, underbites, and a variety of other malocclusions.
Of course, sometimes patients aren’t thrilled by the fact that traditional braces are made from stainless steel. One way to combat this is to apply ceramic braces. These braces still look and function the same way as traditional braces—the only difference is that instead of stainless steel, the braces are made from clear or tooth-colored ceramic.
What are the benefits of receiving ceramic braces?
Some of the benefits of this orthodontic treatment include:
- Ceramic is a discreet material
- You may feel more comfortable smiling and talking while wearing these braces
- Ceramic braces are durable
- Ceramic braces won’t discolor natural tooth enamel
- Treatment is effective and sometimes faster than with other orthodontic systems (this will depend on the type and severity of the dental issues you are dealing with)
- Ceramic braces are easy for our dentist to remove after your treatment is complete
