Ceramic Braces in Bristol
For anyone who is worried about how you will appear whilst wearing braces, Ceramic braces are the ideal treatment. These fixed braces straighten your teeth discreetly and do not affect how you look whilst the treatment is progressing. This means that during and after the treatment you can smile in confidence!
What are they?
Fixed Ceramic Braces are lightweight, comfortable brackets and wires that are affixed on to the front part of your teeth. These strong and very versatile braces are made from ceramic materials with colors that blend in naturally with a shade of your teeth, making them very popular adult braces for those with orthodontic needs. They benefit from having less visibility than traditional metal braces yet allow for exact positioning and calibration.
Am I a Suitable Patient?
Ceramic braces are a reliable solution for most kinds of orthodontic issues. If you suffer from overcrowded teeth or conversely have prominent gaps between your teeth, ceramic braces could be an ideal solution for your needs. They are also an excellent choice for those suffering from:
- Rotated Teeth
- Protruding Teeth
- Open bites
Ceramic braces are an orthodontic treatment suitable for both teenagers and adults of all ages.
The Treatment Process
If you wish to move forward with your treatment using ceramic braces, we will first take dental impressions and moulds of your teeth to help plan your treatment. Once complete and you come to have your braces fitted, we will glue the individual brackets onto your teeth and connect the wires, which we will then adjust in order to start the teeth moving process.
We will invite you back to High Street Dental Clinic on a regular basis in order to ensure the treatment is progressing as needed and make any adjustments required.
What are the advantages of using ceramic braces?
The most major aspect of ceramic braces that appeals to people wanting adult teeth straightening solutions is that they are very discreet. They are barely visible compared to traditional metal braces and yet can result in the same amazing results. Unlike metal braces, ceramic brace brackets do not discolor, so they will not look obvious during your treatment.
As ceramic braces use low forces to shift your teeth into the correct place, they are more comfortable and safe. After a very short period of adjusting to the braces, you will be able to speak normally and eat without any discomfort.
How easy is it to take care of your teeth while wearing ceramic braces?
Whilst wearing ceramic braces, be sure to brush your teeth for longer, and we recommend brushing your teeth after every meal. Our brace experts at High Street Dental Clinic will provide advice and guidance on cleaning your teeth whilst you are wearing ceramic braces.
