Clear Braces Blend In

Ceramic braces are also referred to as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces. They work the same way metal braces do.

Our patients in Greensboro and High Point love how they look more subtle than metal options. They're smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material. Since they blend right in with the natural color of your teeth, they’re more challenging to notice than traditional braces, even though the brackets are roughly the same size and shape.

Ceramic brackets are a low-profile approach to straightening your smile, especially when paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties. Our more aesthetic-minded patients at Davis & Goldberg Orthodontics are particularly happy with this approach.

Clear braces may make sense if you want the discretion of Invisalign without the hassle and responsibilities associated with remembering to wear and clean your aligners.

Do Ceramic Braces Stain?

If you’re worried about ceramic braces staining, you’ll be pleased to know that this hasn’t been a problem for several years. Ceramic brackets won’t stain. However, the adhesive that connects your teeth to the brackets can.

This can give an overall impression of discoloration or staining over time. If you’re particularly sensitive to this, you can avoid things like coffee and tea, red wine, tomatoes, mustard, etc., to r reduce the chance of any staining, but it’s unnecessary.

As long as you maintain a good oral hygiene routine, there’s no need to worry about giving up t that evening glass of wine or morning coffee.

Perfect for Adults

Once you’ve seen Dr. Davis, Dr. Goldberg, or Dr. Seitz, we can decide together what treatment you need and which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.

At Davis & Goldberg Orthodontics, ceramic braces tend to be a better fit for adults and older teens. They’re a bit more fragile than metal braces and also a bit more expensive, so it makes more sense for our older patients who can take care of them a bit more easily.

Cost of Ceramic Braces

The material used for your braces plays a significant role in determining the cost of your treatment. At Davis & Goldberg Orthodontics, ceramic brackets are priced slightly higher than metal brackets.

The cost of your orthodontic treatment will depend on the complexity of your specific case.

Dr. Davis, Dr. Goldberg, or Dr. Seitz will carefully assess your orthodontic needs and determine a treatment fee that suits you best.

Our Greensboro and High Point offices are committed to making every effort to accommodate both your orthodontic needs and your budget. The great news is that we provide flexible payment plans and convenient automatic bank drafts.

We'll also help you verify your orthodontic benefits with your insurance company. Our aim is to deliver exceptional value at reasonable fees.

When calculating the total treatment cost, we consider the labor involved in applying, adjusting, and removing your braces. Placing and removing ceramic braces require a higher level of technique and take a bit more time.

Our treatment coordinators will be happy to discuss the cost details with you during your free consultation.
