Discover the Clear Beauty of Ceramic Braces
Your smile is a work of art, and clear braces can enhance your natural masterpiece. If you want a subtle way to straighten your teeth, Dr. Orbach offers ceramic braces for amazing results.
Your Subtle Solution for a Confident Smile
Ceramic braces are a great way to align your teeth with a low-profile appearance.
Unlike traditional metal braces, the clear brackets Dr. Orbach uses match the natural color of your teeth.
This makes them a discreet and stylish choice for getting a straighter smile.
How Ceramic Braces Work
Ceramic braces work just like traditional braces. Dr. Orbach attaches the clear brackets to the front surface of your teeth and threads an archwire through them.
As you wear your ceramic braces, the gentle pressure from the archwires guides your teeth into straighter positions, giving you a beautifully aligned smile.
The Benefits of Ceramic Braces
Clear braces are a great option for older teens and adults who don't want to draw attention to their smiles. While the subtle look is a perk, there are more benefits with clear braces at Orbach Orthodontics.
Clear ceramic braces are designed to be inconspicuous. The brackets blend in with your teeth, so they're less noticeable than traditional metal braces. You can smile with confidence throughout your orthodontic journey.
The clear brackets of ceramic braces ensure that your smile looks natural. You can straighten your teeth without sacrificing your appearance, so you'll feel confident wherever you go.
Comfortable & Smooth
Ceramic braces are designed to make you comfortable. The brackets are smooth and gentle against your lips and cheeks, minimizing the discomfort and irritation that comes with traditional metal braces.
Ceramic Braces Vs. Metal Braces
Every smile is unique, so finding the perfect fit is important. Dr. Orbach will help you find the best treatment for your smile at your first visit, but you have the final say in what we do.
If you choose clear braces, there are some important differences to know about what you can expect.
Ceramic braces are more subtle than traditional metal braces. The clear brackets blend with your teeth, so they're great if you want a less noticeable orthodontic option.
Durable & Stain Resistant
Ceramic braces are highly durable, designed to withstand the demands of orthodontic treatment. The material Dr. Orbach uses is stain-resistant, ensuring that your braces stay clear throughout your treatment.
In most cases, the treatment time for ceramic braces is similar to traditional metal braces. The length of your treatment depends on your specific orthodontic needs and goals.
Caring for Clear Braces
Taking care of your teeth is essential to keep your smile in shape, and caring for your braces is just as important! Follow these simple steps to keep your braces in shape:
Be Mindful of Food Choices
You'll need to avoid certain food during treatment to keep your braces looking and feeling great. Avoid sticky or chewy foods like caramel, chewing gum, or toffee since they can get lodged in the braces and are tough to remove.
Steer clear of hard and crunchy foods like popcorn, hard candy, or nuts, as they can damage the brackets or wires. Instead, go for softer alternatives like cooked vegetables, yogurt, and lean meats. If you're having large or hard foods, cutting them into smaller, bite-sized pieces can minimize the risk of damage.
Keep Them Clean
Keeping your teeth clean is crucial when wearing clear braces. After each meal, use a soft toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to brush your teeth thoroughly. Take extra care to clean around the brackets and wires, ensuring that no food particles or plaque remain.
Don't forget to floss daily, using a floss threader or specialized orthodontic floss to clean between the braces. For added freshness and plaque reduction, consider using an antibacterial mouthwash.
