Ceramic Braces in Nashville

Clear Braces for Patients with Cosmetic Concerns

Ceramic braces function in the same way as traditional metal braces. The main difference is that ceramic braces are less noticeable due to the clear color. People generally choose this type of braces because they are self-conscious or just don’t like the look of metal braces. Although they are less noticeable, these braces are not as strong as metal and require extra care. Braces By Dr. Ruth offers the option of choosing ceramic braces in Nashville.

Advantages of Ceramic Braces in Nashville

Ceramic braces are made using a composite material. This type of braces is offered in different levels of transparency, allowing you the choice of clear braces or having braces that match the natural color of your teeth. The wire and rubber bands are a similar color to make them less noticeable. Other than the material, there is not much difference in the treatment process between ceramic braces and metal braces.

The benefits of ceramic braces include:

  • A more discreet appearance
  • Less gum irritation
  • Less expensive than Invisalign
  • Smaller bracket design takes up less space on the teeth
  • Easier to remove when treatment is finished

The biggest problem with ceramic braces is that the material is not as strong as traditional metal braces. This type of braces requires more care and attention to oral hygiene. For these reasons, we generally use ceramic braces on the upper teeth for older teens and adults who have cosmetic concerns with traditional metal braces.

Caring for Clear Braces in Nashville

Because they are less durable and stain more easily than metal braces, ceramic braces require special care. To keep your clear braces looking good, you will need to pay close attention to oral hygiene to remove stains caused by coffee, tea, other staining foods and beverages, or smoking. You will also need to brush more frequently and carefully to keep your braces clean. With some effort, you can avoid discoloration and straighten your teeth effectively while avoiding the look of the metal brackets and wires.

What to Expect From Ceramic Braces

Choosing ceramic braces for orthodontic treatment offers a discreet and effective solution. Expect the following with ceramic braces:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires blend with your natural teeth.
  • Effective Alignment: Like traditional braces, ceramic braces effectively correct misalignments.
  • Comfortable Experience: Modern materials reduce discomfort and irritation.
  • Routine Adjustments: Regular visits for adjustments ensure progress and comfort.
  • Oral Hygiene Importance: Diligent oral care is crucial to prevent staining or discoloration.
  • Treatment Duration: Similar to traditional braces, the duration varies based on individual needs.
  • Confident Smile: As your teeth gradually align, ceramic braces work discreetly to provide a confident and improved smile.
