Ceramic (Clear) Braces
If you are searching for a more discreet orthodontic treatment, Dr. Cristiana (Kika) Araujo may recommend ceramic braces. Unlike metal braces, ceramic braces are made using a tooth-colored material so that they blend in with your teeth to give you a more natural, professional appearance as well as an effective treatment. To make your appointment with our experienced orthodontist and learn more about the advantages of ceramic braces, please call The Dentists for Kids at 210-696-2563.
Clear braces are a discreet, modern way to straighten your teeth. Clear braces work upon the same basic principles as traditional metal braces; they are designed to gently and gradually adjust the positions of your teeth to give you a straighter, more beautiful smile. We are pleased to offer clear braces to help you more aesthetically achieve the straight, healthy smile you deserve. Straightening your teeth has an obvious impact on the appearance of your smile, but did you know that braces can also improve your oral health? Straighter teeth are generally at a lower risk for tooth decay, periodontal disease, and other dental problems.
Clear braces have several benefits. First, they are nearly invisible. This allows you to maintain your normal appearance while undergoing orthodontic treatment. Gone are the days of having a “mouthful of metal” to gain a straighter smile! Whether you are a teenager who is conscious of your appearance at school or an adult who would prefer to maintain your professional appearance at work, clear braces are a great option. Second, our patients often find clear braces to be more comfortable than metal braces. To discover the advantages of clear braces for yourself, we welcome you to contact our skilled pediatric dentists and orthodontist today!
