Top-Quality Ceramic Braces

Here are the benefits of ceramic braces:

  • Braces blend in with teeth
  • Less likely to irritate the gums
  • Straighten with ease

What Are Ceramic Braces And Why Are They Becoming Leaders In Modern Orthodontic Treatment?

Ceramic braces are a modern orthodontic treatment option that combines effectiveness with aesthetics. Made of clear or tooth-coloured materials, ceramic braces blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, making them less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Despite their subtle appearance, ceramic braces are highly effective at straightening teeth and correcting bite issues. At PacificWest Dental Group, we offer ceramic braces as a discreet alternative for patients who want to achieve a confident smile without the visibility of metal braces.

Advantages of Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces aren’t clear, but they do blend with the colour of your teeth. Alongside this benefit, there are many other upsides to choosing this innovative form of treatment, including lingual braces, which are placed behind the teeth, making them virtually invisible. There are several advantages to choosing ceramic braces for your orthodontic treatment.:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Ceramic braces are designed to blend in with your teeth, making them less noticeable than metal braces.
  • Comfort: Ceramic braces’ smooth, rounded edges reduce the risk of irritation to the mouth and gums.
  • Effectiveness: Despite their discreet appearance, ceramic braces are just as effective as metal braces at straightening teeth and correcting bite issues.
  • Durability: Ceramic braces are made of high-quality materials resistant to staining and discoloration, ensuring long-lasting results.
  • Confidence: With ceramic braces, you can smile confidently throughout your treatment, knowing that your braces in Surrey are discreetly working to transform your smile.

Ceramic Braces Orthodontic Treatment Process

There are a few steps we take to ensure your ceramic braces straighten your teeth with ease. The treatment process with ceramic braces typically follows these steps.

Initial Consultation

The first step in getting ceramic braces is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our experienced orthodontists at PacificWest Dental. During this appointment, you’ll discuss your orthodontic concerns, treatment goals, and any questions or concerns about ceramic braces.

Comprehensive Examination

Your orthodontist will comprehensively examine your teeth, jaws, and bite to assess your orthodontic needs. This may include taking digital X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth to create a customized treatment plan.

Treatment Planning

Based on your examination results, your orthodontist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to address your specific orthodontic issues. This plan will outline the duration of your treatment, the anticipated results, and the steps involved in the ceramic braces process.

Placement of Brackets

Once your treatment plan is finalized, the next step is to have your ceramic braces placed. During this appointment, small, tooth-coloured brackets will be bonded to the front surface of your teeth using a dental adhesive. These brackets will serve as anchors for the archwires, gradually moving your teeth into alignment.

Adjustment Appointments

Throughout your treatment, you’ll have regular adjustment appointments with your orthodontist. During these appointments, the tension on your archwires may be adjusted to continue guiding your teeth into their desired positions.

Oral Hygiene Maintenance

Proper oral hygiene is essential during treatment to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and staining. You’ll need to brush your teeth thoroughly after every meal and floss daily to remove food particles and plaque from around your braces.

Dietary Considerations

While wearing ceramic braces, avoiding certain foods and habits that could damage your braces or compromise your treatment progress is important. It includes sticky candies, hard or crunchy foods, and chewing on pens or pencils.

Monitoring Progress

Your orthodontist will closely monitor your progress throughout your ceramic braces treatment to ensure your teeth move according to plan. Regular progress checks and adjustments will be made to achieve the best results.

Removal of Braces

Once your teeth have been aligned and your treatment goals have been achieved, your orthodontist will remove your ceramic braces, which are one of the many types of braces available. This process is quick and painless; any remaining adhesive will be gently polished off your teeth.

Retention Phase

After your ceramic braces are removed, you’ll enter the retention phase of treatment. During this time, you may be fitted with a custom retainer to help maintain your teeth’s new position and prevent them from shifting back out of alignment.
