Discreet, Tooth-Colored Braces For Alignment
Ceramic braces are a popular orthodontic option designed to straighten teeth discreetly. Similar in structure to traditional metal braces, ceramic braces use clear or tooth-colored brackets that blend seamlessly with your teeth, making them less noticeable. They work effectively to correct misalignments, crowded teeth, and bite issues. At Sonrisas Dental Center, we offer ceramic braces in Austin as an excellent choice for achieving a beautiful, confident smile.
Ceramic Braces Treat:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Bite issues
- Gap between teeth
How Ceramic Braces Work
Ceramic braces work using the same fundamental principles as traditional braces. They consist of clear or tooth-colored ceramic brackets attached to the teeth. An archwire, made of nickel-titanium, runs through the brackets, applying gentle pressure. This pressure gradually moves the teeth into their desired positions. Over time, the bone around the teeth remodels to accommodate the new alignment. Regular adjustments by the orthodontist ensure steady progress, ultimately resulting in a properly aligned bite.
How The Orthodontic Treatment Is Performed
Step 1. Consultation & Treatment Plan
Your journey begins with an initial consultation with our experienced orthodontist. During this visit, the orthodontist will assess your dental condition, examine your teeth, and discuss your treatment goals. X-rays, photographs, and impressions of your teeth may be taken to create a personalized treatment plan. Based on the examination results, the orthodontist will create a customized treatment plan tailored to your orthodontic needs.
Step 2. Placing Ceramic Braces
Once your personalized treatment plan is finalized, the next step is to have your ceramic braces placed. The orthodontist will carefully attach clear or tooth-colored brackets to the front surface of your teeth using dental adhesive. After placing the brackets, the orthodontist inserts an archwire through the brackets. The archwire, often made of nickel-titanium, is responsible for applying gentle pressure to move your teeth into their proper positions.
Step 3. Regular Adjustments
Throughout your treatment, you’ll have periodic appointments for adjustments. During these visits, the orthodontist will modify the archwire, gradually increasing the pressure to guide your teeth to the desired alignment. Depending on your needs, the orthodontist may incorporate elastic bands, springs, or other components to address issues like bite correction or closing gaps between teeth. Regular check-ups ensure that your treatment plan is on track.
Step 4. Enjoy Your New Smile
Once your teeth have reached their desired positions, the orthodontist will remove the ceramic braces. A retainer will be provided to maintain the new alignment and prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions. After the braces are removed, you’ll be able to enjoy your beautifully aligned smile. The newfound confidence in your appearance will be a testament to the success of your orthodontic journey.
