Ceramic braces offer a different solution for patients looking to improve their smile. The residents of Smyrna, Vinings and the surrounding communities in Atlanta, Georgia can now come to Smile Envy Dental Group for ceramic braces.
What Are Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces offer the same function as traditional metal braces in a less noticeable way. Utilizing brackets, wires and bands just like metal braces, the main difference is the bracket material. Ceramic brackets are made of a ceramic alloy and are available in clear as well as shades to match your teeth.
Benefits of Ceramic Braces
Patients find ceramic braces blend in with the teeth and are thus less obvious. The aesthetic appearance is beneficial, particularly for adults looking to correct problematic issues or adjust their smile without feeling embarrassed.
What Is the Procedure for Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are attached to the patient’s teeth in a very similar way to traditional metal braces. Dr. Lofters will adjust the braces regularly, usually once a month. Oral hygiene is very important, as ceramic braces may become stained between visits. Ceramic braces are more fragile than metal brackets. To minimize bracket failure, Dr. Lofters may use smaller adjustments, which will lengthen the overall treatment timeframe.
Recovery from Ceramic Braces
While getting ceramic braces will not hurt, expect soreness in your mouth and teeth for about a week. You will quickly adapt to the feeling of having braces. If you experience any prolonged pain beyond the initial soreness, let Dr. Lofters know immediately.
How Much Do Ceramic Braces Cost?
The cost of ceramic braces will vary based on your needs. Braces may be covered by your dental insurance. Ceramic braces are generally more expensive than traditional metal braces. We will work with you to determine your benefits coverage and what you may owe for your treatment. Smile Envy Dental Group offers financing through CareCredit® as well as other payment options.
Are Ceramic Braces Right for Me?
