About Clear Braces in Smyrna
Our clear braces at Evergreen Orthodontics are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. They're smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material.
All About Ceramic Braces
Evergreen Orthodontics is proud to offer clear braces to our patients in Smyrna, Atlanta, and surrounding areas! Also referred to as ceramic braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces, clear braces work the same way metal braces do.
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, they’re much less noticeable than metal braces.
Ceramic braces offer patients a discreet treatment option, but, they can sometimes be slightly more fragile and more expensive than metal braces. Because of this, Dr. Lotz typically recommends them for older teen and adult patients.
Blend in With Clear Braces at Evergreen Orthodontics
Ceramic brackets are a less obvious way to straighten your smile. This option is especially attractive if you’re an adult or teen in Smyrna who’s worried about their orthodontic treatment being seen by others.
Ceramic braces are perfect if you want an aesthetic treatment option but don't want the extra hassle of removable aligners and the responsibility of wear time.
Even though most of our Evergreen Orthodontics patients in ceramic braces love how discrete they are, we do have some teens and adults who like to use colored ligature ties to get a very unique, almost neon look.
The Differences Between Clear & Metal Braces
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 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 Dr. Lotz makes sure we change your elastics at every adjustment appointment.
As long as you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan put in place by Dr. Lotz, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
Cost of Clear Braces in Smyrna
Treatment fees will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Lotz will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our office will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
The good news is, at Evergreen Orthodontics you’ll benefit from flexible payment plans and automatic bank drafts. we’ll also check with your Georgia insurance company for any orthodontic benefits. Our goal is to provide outstanding value to Atlanta, Smyrna, Austell, Vinings and Marietta for a reasonable fee.
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 Evergreen Orthodontics and this requires more time.
Fantastic for Adults
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Lotz, we can determine which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.
At Evergreen Orthodontics, we think ceramic braces are generally better suited to adults and older teens. This is because ceramic brackets are more likely to break, and they're more expensive than metal brackets.
