If you want to have your teeth straightened, you should visit us at Kevin L Carlton DDS MS where our orthodontist will help you to get the beautiful smile of your dreams. Our orthodontist can provide you with Wylie dental braces to straighten your smile; among the many different types of braces that we offer are ceramic braces.
Many patients want to get ceramic braces when they get Wylie dental braces. This is because ceramic braces are much more aesthetically appealing and much less visually obtrusive than are traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces are made of composite materials. They come in different levels of transparency so your ceramic braces can either look like your natural tooth color, or they can even be completely translucent. In the latter case, the ceramic braces are often referred to as clear ceramic braces. A great advantage of these braces is that they do not stain and will continue to look natural throughout your entire treatment process. Most of our adult patients tend to prefer ceramic braces, as opposed to metal braces, because they are much more cosmetically appealing and less noticeable than metal braces. Clear ceramic braces are also very popular with our adult patients. Also, there are two different types of braces wires that can also be used to make these brackets look even more inconspicuous. The ties can be made up of either clear elastic or white metal. While the metal ties are stronger, they can lose their white coating over time and become more obvious in the mouth so that they may need to be changed more frequently. Ceramic braces are also more expensive than metal braces. This is partially because you will need to have more visits to our orthodontist when you use ceramic braces. It is also possible for teeth to wear where the brackets touch the teeth, since ceramic is harder than tooth enamel. This is why ceramic braces cannot be used in all bite situations.
