One of the biggest complaints that most of us have about traditional metal braces is that they are noticeable. The visible wires and brackets which are used to straighten misaligned or wrongly aligned teeth wreck your smile and confidence.
Thanks to clear ceramic braces you no longer have to suffer the embarrassment of having an ugly smile. Ceramic braces are a metal-free version of traditional braces. As they look very transparent they are also called ‘clear ceramic braces’. They are made of translucent tooth-colored materials. They function in the same way as traditional metal braces. However they offer many extra advantages to patients compared to traditional braces.
Ceramic or metal-free braces offer the following advantages:
- Tooth-colored brackets easily blend with the teeth to give a natural look
- Very comfortable to use and less painful as they do not irritate gums
- Practically invisible and less noticeable than traditional metal braces
- Do not stain the teeth
- The best choice especially for those with metal allergies
- Strong and do not chip or break unless they are misused
- Make people feel more confident about their orthodontic treatment
Therefore, they provide the best aesthetic alternative for straightening teeth, especially for those patients who are seeking other options than traditional metal braces.
Are ceramic braces the right choice for my smile?
Although the main advantage of ceramic braces is their aesthetic and cosmetic appeal, you need to consult your dentist to determine if ceramic braces are the right choice for you or not. The only major drawback of ceramic braces is that they are more expensive than metal braces. If the price is not a concern then ceramic braces are the best choice for straightening your teeth.
