Ceramic braces are a more discreet form of traditional braces. Although they follow the same procedures and use the same materials as traditional braces, ceramic braces use tooth-colored or clear brackets. This makes it easier for others to see your straighter smile before noticing your braces. If you are interested in receiving ceramic braces in Henrico, Virginia, we welcome you to visit with our dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Neal, by contacting Who Does Your Teeth at 804-447-1435. We look forward to helping you achieve the smile you want!
Ceramic braces are a discreet, modern way to straighten your teeth. Ceramic braces work just like traditional metal braces; they use wire and brackets to gently and gradually adjust the positions of your teeth to give you a straighter, more beautiful smile. However, unlike traditional metal braces, ceramic braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets to make your appliance less visible. We are pleased to offer ceramic braces to help you more aesthetically achieve the straight, healthy smile you deserve.
Many people believe that ceramic braces are weaker than traditional metal braces. In fact, ceramic braces are quite durable. Ceramic braces are also nickel-free, which is a great alternative to traditional braces for patients who are allergic to nickel or who have concerns about metal appliances.
Ceramic braces are a cost-efficient, safe, and effective treatment to straighten your smile in a way that is hardly noticeable to your peers. Your visits to our office will be very similar to checkups and adjustments that are done with traditional braces. During each adjustment appointment, however, your ceramic brackets may be changed to ensure strength and beauty. If you are interested in using ceramic braces to straighten your smile, our orthodontist will help determine whether they are right for you.
