What Are Ceramic Braces?

One day, orthodontists sat and thought to themselves, what if we could take NASA’s proprietary technology and use it on braces?

Ok, so maybe that wasn’t the only thing that happened. But the reality is that we wouldn’t have this treatment option if we hadn’t had that funny crossover during the 80’s. Maybe you didn’t know this, but ceramic braces rely on the same systems and principles as traditional metal braces; however, instead of using stainless steel, they use ceramic composites first developed for space exploration missions.

This material, just as we mentioned before, blends with your natural tooth color, giving adults and teenagers a discreet treatment option. You’ll get to realign your teeth without the risk of attracting unwanted attention to your smile due to shiny metal pieces glued to each tooth.

Why Choose Clarity Ceramic Braces?

  • A revolutionary leap forward in orthodontic ceramic brackets.
  • These ultra-small translucent brackets are made of an innovative ceramic material that gives an attractive appearance.
  • Clarity ADVANCED Ceramic Brackets offer trusted strength in small size and the lowest available profiles.
  • A remarkably small bracket also minimizes soft tissue contact and showcases an attractive look that can turn the most self-conscious, tight-lipped patient into someone beaming with pride.
  • Designed to blend with your natural tooth color, they will resist staining and discoloration over the course of treatment.

Are There Any Downsides to Ceramic Braces?

Parents and adults who consider this treatment option will have to consider that they’re a bit more expensive than traditional metal braces; however, that’s a discussion you can have with your orthodontist. Here at Sloss & Carpenter Orthodontics, we want to make sure we help make your treatment as affordable as possible.

Likewise, patients who wear these braces will have to consider that the ceramic composites are not as durable as stainless steel, meaning you’ll have to be more careful with your choice of foods to avoid damaging your braces.

Other than that, you won’t have to worry too much about how your choice will change your treatment considerations. Just make sure you ask our team of qualified specialists and experts if Clarity Ceramic Braces are the right choice for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

The materials used by Clarity Ceramic Braces are resistant to staining, but you should still keep in mind that your teeth might stain from other substances and habits. Smoking and drinking black tea or red wine could potentially stain your teeth, except for the area under the special brackets. When you remove your Clarity Ceramic Braces, you might notice a difference in color similar to a tan line for teeth.

Ceramic braces are an innovative solution to the problem of discretion in orthodontics. While the durability of medical-grade stainless steel is unparalleled, the ceramic composites used for the manufacture of ceramic braces are highly durable and far more discreet. The material blends more naturally with your teeth’ color, making it harder to see that you’re wearing an orthodontic appliance.

The main difference between traditional metal braces and ceramic braces is the material used to manufacture the brackets and the archwire. The ceramic composites first developed as part of NASA’s space exploration efforts in the 80s made their way to the field of orthodontics as a durable and much more discreet alternative to the shiny metal used in braces up until then.

Ceramic braces can help patients fix cases of dental malalignment, such as overcrowding, buck teeth, and gap teeth. Likewise, cases of malocclusion, such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites, which are more closely related to your jaw alignment, are also solvable with ceramic braces. Make sure you go to an orthodontist and verify that your case is solvable with ceramic braces.

Ceramic braces, like any other orthodontic appliance, will require some time to work. Generally speaking, you can expect your treatment to last anywhere between 18 to 24 months, but this will depend on circumstances unique to each patient, so make sure to consult with your orthodontist to verify what to expect from your case.

There are two main areas you need to focus on to care for your ceramic braces. The first is oral hygiene, meaning it’s essential that you brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush after every meal and use dental floss or an interdental brush to clean in between your teeth or around the brackets and along the wire. The second aspect of proper care is related to your dietary habits because some foods can damage your orthodontic appliance, and some beverages could stain your teeth.

The main benefit of ceramic braces, when compared to conventional metal braces, is the added discretion. The materials used to manufacture the brackets will resemble your natural tooth color more closely, and you won’t have to be so worried about the way you look when you smile during your orthodontic treatment.
