Less-Noticeable Than Metal Braces
At Harmony Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer ceramic braces to our patients in Canton, Woodstock, and the surrounding areas!
Also known as ceramic braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces, these work just like metal braces.
Our clear braces are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces.
They're smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material.
All About Clear Braces
Clear braces are also referred to as ceramic braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces and they work the same way metal braces do. These ceramic options blend in well with your natural smile.
Though they're not completely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape, they’re much less noticeable than metal braces.
Ceramic braces offer patients a discreet treatment option, but, they can sometimes be slightly more fragile and more expensive than metal braces.
Because of this, Dr. Mathieson typically recommends them for older teen and adult patients.
Blend in With Clear Braces
Ceramic brackets are a less obvious way to straighten your smile when paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties. This option is especially attractive if you’re an esthetic-minded adult or teen.
Ceramic braces are perfect if you want an aesthetic treatment option but don't want the extra hassle of removable aligners and the responsibility of wear time.
Even though most of our Canton patients in ceramic braces love how discrete they are, we do have some teens and adults who like to use colored ligature ties.
This gives braces an almost neon look. The colors pop off the clear brackets, creating a really unique look most people haven’t seen before.
Best for Adults
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Mathieson, we can determine which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.
At Harmony Orthodontics, we think ceramic braces are generally better suited to adults and older teens. This is because ceramic brackets are more likely to break, and they're more expensive than metal brackets.
