Blend In With Ceramic Braces
Going through orthodontic treatment in Charlotte or Indian Trail doesn’t have to be as obvious as it used to be with our super clear braces and ties.
Clear brackets from Koerich Orthodontics blend in with your teeth to create a natural, less noticeable look.
Giving You a Clear Alternative to Metal
Dr. Lindsey and Dr. Leo use them to correct your bite and align your smile the same way as metal braces. Clear braces with Koerich Orthodontics are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces
Many older teenagers and adult patients in Charlotte and Indian Trail prefer this discreet option because you can achieve a great smile without the visibility of metal braces.
These ceramic options blend in well with your natural smile. Though they're not completely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape as metal braces, they’re much less noticeable for patients around Charlotte and Indian Trail.
Differences Between Ceramic
& Metal Braces
People all around Charlotte and Indian Trail know metal braces for their strength and durability. Ceramic braces are also tough, but they are made from a different, more fragile material that’s more likely to chip or crack.
Traditional braces are also better at tolerating pressure than newer ceramic ones. If your orthodontist needs to create more drastic corrections, metal braces could be a better option. Adjustments with ceramic braces have to be slightly smaller, so it can take Koerich Orthodontics a little more time to align your teeth.
Having said that, both types of braces work on the same principles and tend to be equally as effective in most cases.
You may be worried about ceramic braces staining, but that hasn’t been a problem for several years. Ceramic brackets won’t stain. But, the adhesive used to attach the brackets to the teeth and the clear elastic ties used to hold the wires in place can stain.
This can give an overall impression of discoloration or staining over time. You can choose to avoid things like coffee and tea, red wine, tomatoes, mustard, etc. to cut back on the chance of any staining. This isn’t necessary, since your orthodontist will change your elastics at every adjustment appointment.
If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan designed by Dr. Lindsey or Dr. Leo, you won’t have to worry too much about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
Cost of Clear Braces
Your treatment fee at Koerich Orthodontics will depend on the complexity of your treatment. Dr. Lindsey or Dr. Leo will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our team will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
One of the biggest factors impacting your total treatment cost at Koerich Orthodontics will be the materials we use for your braces. At our Charlotte and Indian Trail offices, ceramic brackets cost a little more than metal brackets.
The good news is that we offer flexible payment plans and automatic bank drafts at Koerich Orthodontics. We will also check with your insurance company for orthodontic benefits.
Our goal is to provide affordable, outstanding value to Indian Trail, Charlotte, and beyond.
We need to factor in the work it takes to put your braces on, adjust them, and remove them into your total treatment cost. Placing and removing ceramic braces demands more attention and technique from our experts at Koerich Orthodontics, requiring more time.
Our treatment coordinators will be happy to discuss the cost with you at your first free consultation at our Charlotte and Indian Trail offices.
A Great Option for Adults & Teens
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Lindsey or Dr. Leo, we can determine which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.
At Koerich Orthodontics, we generally think ceramic braces suit adults and older teens better than children and younger teens. This is because ceramic brackets are more likely to break and are more expensive than metal brackets.
