Has an orthodontist told you that you need braces? Although braces are exciting to some, you may be feeling differently.
Perhaps you’re worried about how braces will make you look. Plenty of our patients have the same concern, and we certainly don’t want you to feel uneasy about getting braces. That’s why Charleston Orthodontic Specialists gives you options when it comes to your orthodontic treatment - so you can select the one that will make you feel the most confident.
If you’re hesitant about braces because they are so visible, you may want to consider ceramic braces instead of silver braces.
How Are Ceramic Braces Different?
The ceramic brackets used in ceramic braces are clear, allowing them to discreetly improve the look of your smile.
While you’re able to enjoy the way ceramic braces make you look, they’re still working in the same way silver braces would. Significant tooth-crowding, bite issues and more can be corrected with ceramic braces.
Although ceramic braces may look different than metal braces, the way you care for them remains the same, which includes brushing after every meal and flossing daily.
Are Ceramic Braces Right for You?
Our orthodontist can help you decide if ceramic braces are right for you. First, we’ll have you come in for a free examination to check the alignment of your teeth and your bite position. We’ll also consider how much ceramic braces cost compared to other treatment options and any cosmetic concerns you have.
We want to make sure we’re treating your particular issues with the most efficient, cost-effective solution that will improve your oral health with negatively affecting your lifestyle.
