About Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are also referred to as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or esthetic braces and they work the same way metal braces do.
Our clear braces are designed to be less-noticeable on your teeth than metal braces and they're smaller than ever and are made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material.
Both of these ceramic options will blend in well with your natural smile.
Though they're not completely invisible, they’re much less noticeable than metal braces, even though the brackets are about the same size and shape.
Blend In With Clear Braces
Even though most patients in ceramic braces love how discrete they are, we do have some teens and adults who like to use colored ligature ties.
These give braces an almost neon look, where the colors pop off the clear brackets, creating a really unique look most people haven’t seen before.
Ceramic brackets are an inconspicuous way to straighten your smile when paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties. These are an especially attractive option for our adult patients or esthetic-minded teens.
Ceramic braces are perfect for patients who want an esthetic treatment option but don't want the extra hassle of removable aligners and the responsibility of wear time with clear aligner systems like Invisalign®.
Cost of Ceramic Braces
While those treatment fees will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Bennett will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our office will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
The work it takes to put braces on, adjust them, and take them off must also be factored into the total cost of treatment. The placement and removal of ceramic braces is more sensitive to technique and requires more time.
Our treatment coordinators will be happy to go over the cost with you at your first free consultation.
When looking at the cost of your treatment, one of the biggest factors will be the materials used to craft your braces.
In our office, ceramic brackets are slightly more costly than metal brackets.
The good news is, we offer flexible payment plans, automatic bank drafts, and we will also check with your insurance company for orthodontic benefits. Our goal is to provide outstanding value for reasonable fees!
