When to Choose Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are a great option for adults looking for a more discreet orthodontic solution. The ceramic braces blend in well with your natural teeth and can be an alternative to removable aligner systems like Invisalign, although ceramic braces are not completely invisible. Ceramic braces cost a little more than metal braces, and it takes a bit longer to fit and remove the brackets.
Both metal and ceramic fixed braces are a good option, but metal braces are more durable and can tolerate a greater amount of pressure. If you need substantial corrections to the alignment of your teeth, they can be the best option. Ceramic braces are best suited to smaller tooth movements, so if you require more complex realignments, your treatment could take longer. Both braces work similarly and are often equally as effective.
When you have fixed conventional braces, excellent oral hygiene is essential, so be prepared to spend a little more time cleaning around the brackets and wires after each meal. Caring for conventional braces isn’t difficult, and we will show you exactly how to clean them thoroughly.
