Ceramic braces at Trapnell Orthodontics

Ceramic Braces from Provo to Payson, UT

Ceramic braces are an alternative to traditional braces and preferred by many of our adult patients who seek a straighter, healthier smile. Instead of using brackets constructed of high-grade stainless steel, our brackets are made of ceramic or high quality plastic materials that are translucent (clear). We frequently use clear or white elastic ties between the brackets to make them even less noticeable.

These braces are more cosmetically appealing than traditional braces, because the clear materials stand out less than stainless steel. Although this type of braces has the advantage of being less noticeable, it does have some minor drawbacks.

Ceramic braces are not as strong as their stainless steel counterparts, and patients with these braces will need to take extra care to prevent the need for repairs. A smaller issue is that the clear or white elastic ties can sometimes become discolored between visits.
