Recent advances in orthodontic technology mean that braces no longer need to be unattractive or uncomfortable. Realignment of the teeth can be discreet and doesn’t have to affect your confidence, especially with clear ceramic braces. There are a number of advantages clear ceramic braces have over traditional steel braces.
1) Ceramic braces are tough and durable
People are often under the impression that clear ceramic braces aren’t as tough as their traditional counterparts, but this is a common misconception. A raw material metal might be tougher, but clear ceramic braces are refined and designed to offer maximum durability.
2) The arch wire of ceramic braces can be colored
While your actual braces will be of a clear, durable and discreet material, you might not be happy with a metal wire that will connect the braces. The good news is that colored wire can be used to blend with the natural shade of your teeth. Colored arch wire is barely noticeable, even when you smile!
3) Clear ceramic braces won’t affect your tooth enamel
Advanced orthodontic technology means that your tooth enamel is protected with clear ceramic braces. Each ceramic bracket is attached with a high bond strength, and the bonding agent is designed to prevent demineralization and color changes.
4) Clear ceramic braces are easily removed
Once treatment has been completed, ceramic brackets are incredibly easy to remove.
5) You won’t really notice ceramic braces in pictures
Get snap-happy and enjoy taking as many selfies as you want – your clear ceramic braces won’t be all that noticeable.
6) Enjoy great comfort with ceramic braces
For some, the small brackets and comfortable ceramic material in modern braces are more bearable than the components used in traditional metal braces.
7) Ceramic braces are discreet
With small brackets which are almost invisible, most people won’t even notice you are wearing ceramic braces.
