Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear braces are made of ceramic materials that are less visible on your teeth than metal braces! As a result, most people cannot tell that you’re wearing braces!
Because ceramic braces are more fragile, they can chip or break easier when compared to stainless steel metal braces. For this reason, we usually recommend ceramic braces for older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. Ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper teeth than on lower teeth since most people don’t show much of their lower teeth when they talk or smile.
Dr. Chen only uses the highest quality orthodontic materials made in the
U.S.A. by American Orthodontics or 3M Unitek. The brackets have been
designed and chosen to help Dr. Chen treat you in the most effective and
efficient way possible. Because of the unique design of your braces,
they are smaller, more comfortable, and promote better oral hygiene.
That means your braces will feel as good to you as they look to others!
