Ceramic braces are the clear alternative to traditional braces. These discreet braces are made with clear ceramic brackets. Like metal braces, ceramic braces use brackets, wires and small rubber bands to align the teeth and jaw bones.
Ceramic brackets blend in with your smile for a more discreet look than traditional braces.
These braces are durable and specially-designed to resist stains, so you shouldn’t have to worry about discoloration during your treatment.
Dr. Senties can treat a number of conditions with ceramic braces. Anything that can be treated with metal braces can typically be treated with ceramic braces.
Treatable conditions include:
The difference between ceramic braces and metal braces comes down to preference! If you prefer a less noticeable form of braces than traditional braces, ceramic braces may be right for you.
If you want to add some fun to your smile with colored rubber bands, traditional braces may be better suited for you.
The average treatment length with ceramic braces spans anywhere from 18 to 36 months. Your treatment period may be shorter or longer, depending on your condition.
At your initial consultation with Dr. Senties, he’ll assess your teeth and bite to give you an estimated treatment length!
