Ceramic braces in Saint Peters
Orthodontic options have grown significantly throughout the years. Traditional braces are the gold standard of orthodontics, but some patients prefer a more discreet option. With clear braces, you can treat your teeth with “invisible” brackets and achieve the same effectiveness as traditional braces.
Also known as ceramic braces, clear braces use ceramic materials instead of stainless steel brackets. These ceramic brackets can be transparent or tooth-colored so your appliances blend in with the appearance of your teeth. With help from our team at Unger Orthodontics, you can begin this treatment and take the first step toward your new smile.
Who's a good fit for ceramic braces?
With ceramic braces, you’ll rely on tried-and-true orthodontic alignment methods. Clear braces can address many dental issues, from overbites to crowded teeth. Whether your mouth is still growing or you’ve had problems with your bite for years, you may be a great candidate for ceramic braces.
Ceramic braces can fit a wide range of patient preferences. We often recommend clear braces for teens or adults who are self-conscious about the look of traditional braces. Patients with clear bracket braces enjoy the best of both worlds as they straighten their teeth with a less noticeable form of treatment.
Other than their “invisible” appearance, clear braces offer a convenient and effective form of treatment. Many patients enjoy having a fixed set of braces on their teeth, so they don’t have to remember to take equipment out or put it in. Plus, tooth-colored brackets are less likely to stain your teeth as long as you follow proper cleaning. If you think ceramic braces may be right for you, Dr. Unger can help you get started.
