Straight teeth both look good and reduce oral complications. Braces are wonderful for straightening teeth. But traditional metal braces are not very nice looking and they make it obvious that you are straightening your teeth. This is why Garrison Family Dentistry provides their patients in the Smithville, MO area the option of ceramic braces. They are less noticeable and better looking!
Ceramic braces have translucent brackets so they blend in with your teeth. In certain cases, the wires may be able to be tooth colored to blend in well, also. In the past, ceramic braces would stain over time. But with the latest advances in ceramic braces, they are stain resistant, so they continue to look nice and blend in well for the duration of your straightening process.
As with any type of braces, a good oral hygiene routine of brushing and flossing is required. Combined with regular cleanings from your dentist, the braces will look good for a long time. When the process is complete, you will have an attractive smile!
The process for applying ceramic braces is the same as traditional braces. Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and come up with a step-by-step plan. The brackets are bonded to the front of your teeth and the wire is clipped in.
If you are interested in straightening your teeth but do not want a noticeable metallic smile, schedule a consultation with us at Garrison Family Dentistry at (816) 532-8778 or visit our website, www.garrisondentistry.com.
