A Discreet Way to Straighten Your Teeth
At Fargo Orthodontics, we offer clear ceramic braces as an effective alternative to traditional braces to transform your smile.
What Are Clear Braces?
Clear ceramic braces are an orthodontic treatment option that uses ceramic, tooth-colored brackets and wires to move your teeth into their ideal position. Like traditional metal braces, clear braces apply pressure to your teeth to guide them into place.
However, unlike traditional metal braces, clear braces are much less noticeable and blend in with your smile. If you're looking for a way to straighten your teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces, ceramic braces may be the perfect option.
How Do Clear Braces Work?
Clear braces work in much the same way as traditional metal braces. The brackets and wires apply gentle pressure to your teeth to shift them over time.
However, the brackets and wires are clear or tooth-colored, so they are much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. This makes clear braces an excellent option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth without the prominent appearance of traditional metal braces.
The Clear Difference With Ceramic Braces
The most obvious difference between clear and metal braces is their appearance. While traditional metal braces use metal brackets and wires that are easily visible, clear braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets and wires that are much less noticeable. This makes clear braces a great option to straighten your teeth discreetly.
People around Fargo know metal braces for their strength and durability. Ceramic braces are also tough, but they are made from a different, more fragile material that's more likely to chip or crack.
Traditional braces are also better at tolerating pressure than newer ceramic ones. If you need Dr. Duevel or Dr. Keim to create more drastic corrections, metal braces could be a better option.
That said, clear and metal braces work the same way and are equally effective in most cases.
The Benefits of Clear Braces
At Fargo Orthodontics, we understand that you have unique needs and preferences for your orthodontic treatment. Ceramic braces have several benefits if you want to straighten your smile discreetly and effectively. Some of the main benefits of ceramic braces include:
The ceramic braces we use at Fargo Orthodontics are made of a translucent material that blends in with the natural color of your teeth, so they're less noticeable than traditional metal braces. This is a significant advantage if you're worried about feeling self-conscious during treatment.
Ceramic braces are made of a strong, durable material that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use, making them a reliable option for many patients. However, they can be slightly more fragile than metal braces, so we typically recommend them for older teens and adults.
Ceramic braces have smooth, rounded edges, making them more comfortable to wear than traditional metal braces. That means you'll have less irritation in your mouth while you straighten your smile.
Ceramic braces are highly effective at gently correcting orthodontic issues, including overcrowding, spacing, and bite problems.
If you want a fixed orthodontic appliance, ceramic braces are a great option—especially if you're concerned you'll have difficulty remembering to wear removable appliances like clear aligners.
Who Should Get Clear Braces?
Clear braces are a great option for anyone who wants to straighten their teeth without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces. They are especially popular among older teens and adults looking for a more discreet way to straighten their teeth.
The best way to find out if clear braces are a good fit for your smile is a free consultation with Dr. Duevel or Dr. Keim at our Fargo office. They’ll thoroughly examine your smile and create a personalized treatment plan that will meet your needs and fit your lifestyle.
