Ceramic Braces From Daniel & Jones Orthodontics
Clear braces from Daniel & Jones Orthodontics are a great, subtle alternative to conventional metal braces in Little Rock and surrounding areas.
They’re made of a ceramic material that blends in with your natural smile to be less visible on your teeth than metal braces.
Giving You a Clear Alternative to Metal
Clear braces with Dr. John Daniel and Dr. Alex Jones are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. Many older teenagers and adult patients at Daniel & Jones Orthodontics prefer this option because you can achieve a great smile without the visibility of metal braces.
Ceramic braces are also referred to as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces.
Dr. Daniel and Dr. Jones use them to correct your bite and align your smile the same way as metal braces.
At Daniel & Jones Orthodontics, they're smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material.
These ceramic options blend in well with your natural smile. Though they're not completely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape as metal braces, they’re much less noticeable for patients around Little Rock.
Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces
People all around Little Rock know metal braces for their strength and durability. Ceramic braces are also tough, but they are made from a different material that’s slightly more likely to chip or crack.
Traditional braces are also better at tolerating pressure than newer ceramic ones. If you need
Dr. Daniel or Dr. Jones to create more drastic corrections, metal braces could be a better option. Adjustments with ceramic braces have to be slightly smaller, so it can take Daniel & Jones Orthodontics a little more time to align your teeth.
Having said that, both types of braces work on the same principles and tend to be equally as effective in most cases.
You may be worried about ceramic braces staining, but that hasn’t been a problem for several years. Ceramic brackets won’t stain.
The adhesive used to attach the brackets and the clear elastic ties used to hold the wires in place can stain, but you can choose to avoid things like coffee and tea, red wine, tomatoes, mustard, etc. to cut back on the chance of any staining.
This isn’t necessary, since Dr. Daniel and Dr. Jones make sure to change your elastics at every adjustment appointment.
If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan designed by Dr. Daniel or Dr. Jones, you shouldn’t have to worry about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
