Ceramic Braces

The Clear Way to a Straight Smile in Medford

An Alternative to Traditional Metal Braces

Are you concerned about how you’re going to look with traditional stainless steel braces? Is your child or teen fighting getting braces because they don’t want to feel embarrassed when they smile? Maybe it’s time you talked to about clear braces from your Medford orthodontist. Ceramic braces are constructed of clear materials and are less immediately noticeable. Older teens and adults are often curious if ceramic braces are a good fit for them because of previous cosmetic concerns. It’s important to note that ceramic braces tend to require additional care at home because:

A: They’re generally larger compared to traditional metal braces.
B: They can be more brittle and prone to breakage.

You’ll find that ceramic braces are used on the upper front teeth more often than your lower teeth.

The Same, Yet Different

Our ceramic braces in Medford are very similar to traditional stainless steel braces. Both orthodontic solutions are secured to your teeth using brackets and wires. Both of these braces also required regular adjustments with your orthodontics to ensure proper movement and progression. Ceramic braces are made of clear or tooth-colored materials that are less visible, making them very appealing to teens, young adults, and adults who are self-conscious about a braces-filled smile. Another added benefit of choosing ceramic braces in Medford is that when the day comes to have them removed, it’s easy and fast. Ceramic bracket removal is far less complicated than other braces and will be less likely to cause demineralization of your precious tooth enamel.

Remarkable Results You Can See and Feel

When it comes to ceramic braces, it’s the results we want to see, not a mouthful of braces. One of the most significant benefits of ceramic braces is there’s no need to worry or hide your smile in photos or selfies. They’re virtually invisible and undetectable in photos. Think Invisalign® might be a better orthodontic solution? In some cases, it is; however, ceramic braces in Medford can be more effective because they’re worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Invisalign® aligners are removable, forgettable, and losable. On the other hand, ceramic braces are just as discreet and often offer results quicker than Invisalign®.
