Ceramic Braces From Your Fairfax Orthodontist

Traditional ceramic braces are a less noticeable alternative to traditional metal braces and provide patients with an equally effective treatment. Ceramic braces are tooth-colored, making them almost invisible. They are affixed to the teeth, and wires are threaded through slots in the brackets. Wires are held to brackets by tiny rubber bands called “ligatures” or “o-rings.” Brackets are made of ceramic or porcelain materials. Wires are made of metal alloys and deliver a constant, gentle force to move teeth.

By talking to our orthodontist in Fairfax, VA, you can decide if ceramic braces are the right treatment for you. Our orthodontist can provide answers to your questions and explain the benefits of each treatment. If you would like to learn more about ceramic braces, or other orthodontic options available to you, please contact our Fairfax orthodontic office and schedule an appointment today.
