The Clear Path To A Confident Smile

by televoxweb on Sunday, August 30, 2015 11:46 PM

Drs. Metcalf and Bednarz and the whole team at our office are proud to provide the Nashua, New Hampshire area with a comprehensive selection of orthodontic care options, including metal braces, Invisalign, Incognito braces, and our very popular clear ceramic braces. Each of our treatments have been scientifically proven to effectively and efficiently correct most orthodontic issues, so a question we are often asked is why one treatment might be chosen over another. To answer this question, we are going to take a look at the benefits of clear braces, and how this option may be best for those looking to straighten their smile but wish to avoid the negative aesthetic appeal that is perceived with braces.

How Do Clear Braces Work?

Ceramic braces utilize the exact same components as metal braces, including brackets affixed to the front of the teeth and a rounded wire to help guide teeth into their desired positions. The only significant difference is that ceramic braces use brackets that are made out of a clear, translucent ceramic material instead of metal. By utilizing a clear material, ceramic braces have the exact same functionality as metal braces, yet are far less noticeable on your teeth, since the color is matched to blend in with the natural tint of your teeth. This allows you to get the straight smile you have always wanted without the not-so-subtle look of metal braces, making it the perfect treatment option for adults who wish to avoid the stigma of having braces, as well as adolescents who want a more aesthetically appealing orthodontic appliance.
