What are Ceramic Clear Braces?
Ceramic clear braces are great for patients who want to feel good about the look of their teeth without having to worry about them in social situations. The ceramic brackets of clear braces are created out of a tooth-coloured material to blend in from a distance. They can be seen upon close inspection.
Ceramic braces that are relatively invisible, cost more than traditional braces, but only by a fairly small amount.
The disadvantage compared to metal braces is that the materials used in ceramic braces are a bit weaker than metal braces. They do provide the same effect though there is just a larger chance that they will come loose. Be sure to avoid foods that are chewy or hard in order to avoid this.
What is Invisalign Clear Braces?
Invisalign is completely clear and unnoticeable even from a short distance away. They are more comfortable than both metal braces and ceramic clear braces and do not break easily.
In fact, you don’t even have to worry about them when eating because you are able to remove them at will.
The expected downside to these clear braces that are invisible is that they cost the most out of all the options available.
People with severe misalignment, malocclusion, or overcrowding may not qualify for them as well. An initial examination is needed to find out for sure.
