Straightening your teeth is an investment in a beautiful smile. While the end result is fantastic, often times patients do not like the look of braces during treatment, which can deter patients from straightening their teeth like they want. Nicholas Cosmetic Dental Center of Philadelphia, PA offers clear braces to their patients desiring straight teeth but a more discreet process.
Clear braces work just like traditional metal braces, but the brackets are made of ceramic. The ceramic brackets are translucent, so they blend right in with your teeth. In certain cases, a clear wire is also available for even more discretion. These braces have advanced over time, so unlike versions of the past, the brackets are now stain-resistant. With good care, this keeps them unnoticeable for the duration of the straightening process. Clear braces are available for most cases.
The clear braces work just like traditional braces do, so the ceramic brackets are bonded to the fronts of your teeth and a wire is clipped in that is tightened every few weeks. Over time, the consistent pressure from the wire moves the teeth into the directed positions.
If you are looking to straighten your teeth but do not want to have that metallic smile for a year or more, ceramic braces may be the perfect option for you.
