Ceramic Braces

The teeth can be realigned, adjusted, and straightened using ceramic braces just like with conventional metal braces. Ceramic braces, on the other hand, are a popular substitute because they are less noticeable and highly esthetic.

Major differences between ceramic and metal braces:

Benefits of ceramic braces in comparison to metal braces:

  1. Ceramic  braces function similar to conventional metal braces, that is by gradually repositioning teeth. However, are distinctive for their reduced visibility. They are very esthetic while smiling and talking.
  2. Ceramic braces use clear elastics and nearly clear arch wires that are esthetically acceptable.
  3. Ceramic is biologically inert and do not induce any allergies as is common with metals.
  4. Ceramic does not interfere with an electromagnetic fields, so undergoing scans like a MRI is hassle-free.

A few drawbacks of ceramic braces:

  1. In terms of durability, metal brackets are minimally less prone to breaking.
  2. Ceramic braces, and its clear components stain faster with foods and beverages.
  3. Ceramic braces are made of premium bio-friendly materials and are technique sensitive, hence they are more expensive than conventional metal braces.

Procedures for Ceramic Braces:

  1. The dentist first ensures that all the teeth are healthy with no cavities or gum infection; the dentist then takes X-rays and photographs of the teeth to plan the treatment. The whole treatment plan and its cost will be discussed with you prior to commencement of the procedure.
  2. Spacers are placed to prepare the teeth for braces.
  3. The ceramic brackets will be secured to each tooth with a strong, tooth-friendly bonding material that blends with the natural hade of the teeth. A blue LED light is used to set and harden the adhesive.
  4. The  archwires are placed and  attached to each bracket to secure the ceramic braces. The dentist  trims the ends to keep the wire from poking your cheeks.
  5. On the completion of treatment, the braces will be debonded and removable retainers will be provided to maintain the teeth alignment.
