Ceramic braces utilize less noticeable brackets for patients concerned about aesthetic appearances. Ceramic brackets are translucent, so they blend in with your natural tooth color. Unlike traditional stainless steel braces, ceramic braces will not make your smile look metallic. Additionally, ceramic brackets are designed so that they won't stain or discolor over long periods of time. Dr. Vodzak can let you know if you are a candidate for ceramic braces.
Beyond their metal color, the only thing traditional about these braces is that you can see them. Today's braces are made of super strong metal alloys derived from the space program. Their strength allows them to be the smallest of all braces and therefore the most comfortable. Their density makes them ultra slippery so teeth move faster than they ever have before. Modern braces, in combination with other high tech materials mean fewer office visits to complete treatment.
