Wear Modern Braces with Ceramic Brackets to Straighten Your Teeth
When our dentist at Prairie Hawk Dental in Castle Rock, Colo., examines your teeth, you may learn that you have dental malocclusions that require treatment to correct your bite while providing a gorgeous smile. Fortunately, there are more treatment choices for dental misalignments today, so you don't need to have a mouthful of unattractive metal brackets and wires. Our dentist offers modern clear braces that are barely noticeable on your teeth, making it less embarrassing to fix your overbite or the wide gaps between your teeth. With unobtrusive brackets and wires, you can have your teeth straightened with confidence.
It Is Easy To Have Your Teeth Straightened As an Adult
Many adults grew up before there were good treatments for dental malocclusions, but rather than wearing old-fashioned braces made from silver-colored wire, an adult wants an orthodontic treatment that is less noticeable. After collecting your medical images and the molds of your mouth, our dentist will use the items along with a computer software program to design braces that are made with ceramic brackets. These tiny brackets are made of clear materials or ceramics that match the color of your teeth. In addition, the wires that hold the brackets on your teeth while applying gentle pressure are thinner, making the items more difficult to see.
You Can See How Ceramic Braces Will Look
Before making a choice about wearing braces, our dentist can take a photograph of your face while you smile, and with computer imaging, you can see how you will look with traditional braces along with braces that are made with ceramic brackets. If your teeth are stained from food, tobacco or beverages, then we recommend a tooth-whitening procedure first to improve the appearance of your teeth. With this treatment, we can make ceramic brackets for your new braces that match the color of your teeth. Wearing ceramic braces on your teeth is similar to wearing metal braces, but you must use additional caution to avoid staining the brackets.

When you first begin to wear your braces, you may notice some problems with excess saliva as your mouth adjusts to the devices. In addition, our dentist recommends consuming a soft diet throughout your treatment plan to protect the brackets and wires from damage or discoloration. There are some foods and beverages that you must not consume, including hard foods such as potato chips or popcorn along with beverages such as grape juice. Our dentist recommends brushing your teeth twice a day along with flossing once a day. Contact Prairie Hawk Dental to learn more about the benefits from wearing clear braces.
