Nowadays, metal braces are not the only choice when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Among the options that are available are our clear ceramic braces, which have many benefits that might be plusses for you when it comes to making the decision to have your teeth, or your child's teeth, properly aligned.
Perhaps the most common aspect of orthodontic care that is cited in opposition to wearing our Teterboro braces is the way it changes your appearance. And while metal braces have come a long way from the days of thick, heavy, unattractive devices consisting of criss-crossing wires and brackets, for some people that still isn't enough to make them feel comfortable with the idea of braces in general. Clear ceramic ones are much less obvious, because the portions that would normally be visible as metal, are instead made of a material that matches you tooth color with near identical precision. Beyond the appearance, clear ceramic braces are constructed much like metal braces are, with the same type of ligature. But ceramic is likely to leach into your body, unlike metal, so that is an other thing in its favor. On the downside, ceramic braces will typically take longer to move your or your child's teeth into a more ideal position as prescribed by Dr. Gorkowitz. Ceramic are also more costly than metal braces and may need more frequent adjustments, leading to additional visits to our office. So, which of our Teterboro braces is the most suitable solution for your situation? That decision will be based in large part on your personal preferences. But when you come in for a consultation, you can ask any questions that you have, and Dr. Gorkowitz will help you to make the right selection.
