Cosmetic Braces Q & A
What are clear braces?
Clear braces are similar to traditional metal braces, except the brackets and wires are made from a clear ceramic material making them much less visible. Ceramic braces are often used on older teenagers and adults who are concerned about the appearance of having a mouth full of metal braces. The brackets are made from a clear or tooth-colored ceramic alloy and are usually a little larger than a metal bracket. Clear ceramic braces also require more attention during brushing and flossing. They are most often used on the upper front teeth.
What are the benefits of clear braces?
Clear braces combine the advantages of clear aligners with the effectiveness of traditional braces. Many people feel more confident with the clear braces they are practically invisible. Ceramic braces also straighten teeth more quickly that the clear aligners that are another aesthetically pleasing option for correcting bite and alignment. Additionally, clear braces are a good fit for people with severely crooked teeth, who are not considered candidates for aligners. The discomfort in the cheeks and gums often associated with traditional braces doesn’t occur with the clear braces because the ceramic is less abrasive than metal. Ceramic braces are stain resistant, although the dentist will change the brackets at each visit.
Are ceramic braces right for me?
Dr. Jahn’Shahi will talk to you in detail about what you want to achieve through correcting your alignment and will present a variety of options. Clear braces may be the right choice for you if you want your teeth to be corrected more quickly than with aligners but also are concerned about the appearance of traditional braces. With proper care, ceramic braces will quickly and effectively correct any bite or alignment issues.
Does Insurance Cover Clear Braces?
Most dental insurance providers cover a portion of the orthodontic procedure cost such as the installation of clear braces. The coverage will vary based on the insurance provider. Obtaining the coverage details from your dental insurance provider is important.
