Ceramic Braces Rocklin
Ceramic braces work like metal braces but are far less noticeable, allowing patients to keep their self-confidence during orthodontic treatment. This is because ceramic braces use brackets that match the color of teeth. Furthermore, ceramic braces are resistant to discoloration from heavily pigmented foods and drinks. Here is more about how ceramic braces benefit patients who want to have their teeth corrected in an aesthetically pleasing way.
Ceramic braces lack the metal wires and brackets that are present on traditional braces. When patients visit our expert in ceramic braces in Rocklin, they can opt for translucent bands that blend in with teeth. Because the brackets are clear, a natural appearance is enjoyed by patients throughout their treatment.
Rocklin Ceramic Braces
Patients who visit our Rocklin ceramic braces expert can choose self-ligating ceramic braces for correction that is even more discreet than what is offered by standard ceramic braces. This option eliminates the need for bands, improving their aesthetic properties significantly. However, this is not the only way that self-ligating ceramic braces support appearance. Designed for easy cleaning, they are less likely to accumulate plaque that can make braces more obvious to onlookers.
Our expert in ceramic braces in Rocklin begins placement of ceramic braces by cleaning the mouth and drying it thoroughly. Our dentist next applies a special glue to the teeth in order to bond the brackets in place. After the brackets are firmly secured, our dentist attaches the archwire to the brackets. Finally, our dentist ensures that the archwire will stay in place by placing elastic bands on the brackets. While placement is virtually painless, patients may experience soreness for up to a week afterwards and should eat softer foods to minimize discomfort.
