Ceramic Braces, also known as clear braces, work the same way metal braces do but feature brackets made of tooth-colored ceramic materials. They blend in with your teen’s smile, making them much less obvious.

Why Do I Need Braces?

Beyond outward appearances, untreated dental problems can have a lasting impact on your teen’s oral and overall health. Some common dental problems include:

  • Crooked, crowded or blocked-out teeth
  • Missing or extra teeth
  • Spacing and gaps between the teeth
  • Overbites or underbites
  • Incorrect jaw position
  • Disorder of the jaw joint

Properly aligned teeth and jaws have many benefits, including:

  • Reduced risk of wear and tear, chipping and tooth trauma over time
  • Easier to clean, helping to prevent cavities and tooth decay
  • Less prone to gingivitis and gum disease, which cause bone loss and tooth loss
  • Improved speech, as well as, proper chewing and digestion of food
