Ceramic Braces Offer Durability & Aesthetics While Straightening Your Smile
You can achieve a straight, aesthetic smile through a variety of orthodontic solutions. Typically, the type of braces that work best for you will depend on the extent of treatment needed as well as your personal preferences. If you are concerned with the appearance of metal brackets, you may want to consider ceramic braces as an option. To accommodate patients seeking the dramatic results of traditional metal braces with less noticeable treatment, Kuhlberg Orthodontics provides Clarity™ ADVANCED ceramic braces in Avon, CT. Unlike other aesthetically optimized options such as Invisalign®, ceramic brackets can also be used to treat severe cases of malocclusion. Dr. Andrew Kuhlberg can evaluate your bite and discuss your treatment goals to help you choose the right treatment for you.
What are Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are structurally similar to traditional braces, however, they feature smaller brackets which are attached using APC™ Flash-Free Adhesive. These brackets can be matched to your natural tooth color in a semi-translucent, lifelike ceramic. These materials are also incredibly strong, eliminating the need for metal, and are made with rounded edges for more patient comfort.
As ceramic braces are known for their cosmetic advantages, they are often compared to clear aligners when patients are choosing a discreet orthodontic treatment. However, clear aligners such as Invisalign cannot be used to treat more advanced cases of malocclusion. During your first visit, Dr. Kuhlberg can evaluate your bite and determine what treatment options are available to you based on the degree of alignment needed and your goals.
Benefits of Clarity ADVANCED Ceramic Braces
Dr. Kulberg is dedicated to providing patients with the most advanced solutions to meet their goals as efficiently and effectively as possible. Ceramic braces are an excellent option for teens who are worried about a change in their appearance and the impact it can have on their self-confidence and social life. Many of our adult patients also feel insecure about receiving orthodontic treatment. We do not want any of our patients to put off needed orthodontic treatment due to these concerns and are confident that this treatment can provide the inconspicuous solution you are seeking.
Clarity ADVANCED ceramic braces have been designed to be resistant to staining and discoloration.
There are several benefits of choosing ceramic braces for your orthodontic treatment. The brackets used are rounded and smaller, features that improve comfort as they are less likely to rub against your cheeks and soft tissues. Not only do these brackets provide added aesthetics, they are also highly durable. Many patients are concerned that their brackets will stain easily. However, Clarity ADVANCED ceramic braces have been designed to be resistant to staining and discoloration. This innovative solution also uses a special adhesive that bonds the brackets to the tooth without the need for traditional bonding, protecting your enamel and promoting better oral hygiene.
