Ceramic Braces – Clear Braces Alternative
There are many metal braces alternatives available in modern orthodontics. Each treatment option varies from orthodontist, but you can bet ceramic braces will be offered by your orthodontist.
Ceramic braces are generally clear and hard to see. When cleaned properly after eating, these braces remain unseen for the most part and this is why they are extremely popular.
The cons to ceramic braces are mostly the more expensive price over traditional metal braces. Ceramic brackets also are not as durable and generally are not used where a lot of movement is needed in order to correct a smile.
For the most part, users that request ceramic braces, usually get them on the top only and then the traditional metal braces on the bottom. This may save several hundred dollars on your treatment.
If you are in the market for braces, we recommend you discuss all the latest options and pricing with more than one orthodontist.
