Clear Braces, Clear Results
Ceramic or clear braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets that blend in with your teeth, making treatment at Mahaffey Linkous Orthodontics less noticeable. Ceramic braces work the same way as traditional braces and are an excellent option for older teens and adults around Peachtree City who want a more subtle treatment look.
Your Clear Path to a
Clear braces from Mahaffey Linkous Orthodontics are less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. Many older teenagers and adult patients in Peachtree City prefer this option because you can get great results without the visibility of traditional braces.
Ceramic brackets at Mahaffey Linkous Orthodontics are smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material that blends well with your natural smile.
Although they're not entirely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape as metal braces, clear braces are much less noticeable for patients around Peachtree City and the surrounding communities.
Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces
Traditional metal and clear braces work the same way and use the same parts to straighten your smile, but there are some important differences.
Metal braces are strong and durable, and while ceramic braces are also tough, they are made from a different, more fragile material that's more likely to chip or crack.
Traditional braces are also better at tolerating pressure than newer ceramic ones. If you need more drastic corrections, metal braces could be a better option.
Adjustments with ceramic braces also have to be slightly smaller, so it can take a little longer to align your teeth. Both types of braces tend to be equally effective in most cases.
Many people worry about ceramic braces staining, but with the proper care, that won't be a problem. You won't have to worry about dingy brackets if you maintain a consistent oral hygiene routine.
