Creating Tooth-Colored Brackets For Braces

fort worth clear bracesBraces are often the right choice for helping teens and adults obtain even and healthy smiles, correcting more severe cases of misalignment. But that doesn’t mean we can’t offer a cosmetic approach. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX, orthodontist talks about creating tooth-colored brackets.

The Benefits of Braces

Do you have a major case of crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth? If so, this misalignment could not only be a source of embarrassment, but this could also increase the risk of serious oral health issues, ranging from tooth decay and gum disease to the onset of TMJ disorder and bruxism. But with orthodontics, our team can correct the position of your teeth. In fact, braces are an effective way to correct your uneven smile and improve overall health and beauty. We can even offer a cosmetic touch to make them less visible.

Ceramic Brackets

To begin, we will take detailed digital images of your smile, which we used to create the orthodontics and plan the treatment with precision and accuracy. To get started, we will use the images and impressions to design and craft a series of ceramic brackets. Instead of metal, we can make them from ceramic, which can be shaded to blend with the smile seamlessly. These are made from the same material that dentists use to create natural looking crowns and even replacement teeth. We then attach the brackets to the front facing teeth and connect a portion of an arch wire to them with a clear band. There may be additional bands attached connecting the upper and lower sets of braces. We then adjust tension in the wire to correct the uneven smile.

Use Your Benefits Soon

Now is a good time to see us for a consultation and to start the treatment process. You can use your remaining 2022 dental insurance benefits before they expire, and get started on the path to an even smile before the hectic holiday season limits your availability. We offer care for kids as young as age seven, and can offer cosmetic orthodontic options for teens and adults, such as the ceramic tooth-colored brackets mentioned in today’s blog, or Invisalign® aligners.
