Welcome to Adelaide Orthodontists
The subtle yet effective way to achieve a straight smile.
Clear braces offer the effectiveness of traditional technology with the aesthetics of a cosmetic alternative.
Clear Ceramic Braces
An ideal combination of aesthetics and efficiency
Clear or ceramic braces offer the most tried and tested orthodontic technology while the brackets are clear or tooth coloured which makes them significantly more discreet. This means that you can get all the benefits from traditional braces without the obvious impact on your appearance.
While some cosmetic orthodontic treatments are only suitable to correct minor concerns, ceramic braces can be used to correct almost all orthodontic problems. They are just as effective as traditional metal braces and can be used in simple or very complex cases.
Braces are generally considered to be the fastest and most reliable way of straightening teeth, yet many people don’t like the obvious appearance of traditional metal brackets. At Aesthetic Orthodontics, we use Ormco Ice brackets. These brackets are small in size and clear in colour, making them less obvious. Add the option of white wires, and your braces will be even more subtle.
The treatment process
The treatment process for clear or ceramic braces is very similar to the one of traditional braces. The initial alignment is when the teeth are moved into position and the most drastic changes take place. In the second stage, any spaces between the teeth will be closed and this is also the longest stage. After that, we look at individual tooth position and the final corrections. Your individual needs will be assessed in the initial consultation and after that a treatment plan will be put into place.
Your cosmetic braces can help you reach your goal in an efficiently and aesthetically pleasing way. You can smile without worrying about your braces as the ceramic brackets will fit seamlessly into your natural smile.
