Ceramic braces are similar to conventional metal braces, but other people will have difficulty noticing them because they are clear! Every smooth bracket is constructed from a translucent material to blend with your teeth. Board-certified orthodontist Dr. Saoly Benson offers clear braces using the Carriere SLX 3D bracket system if you would like the advantages of conventional metal braces but with a more attractive look. In addition to using high-quality ceramic braces, Dr. Benson uses the Smile Arc Protection approach to place the brackets precisely for a more effective treatment and a more attractive end result. If you're interested in getting more information on clear ceramic braces or researching other orthodontic choices, contact The Art of Braces in Las Vegas, NV to schedule an appointment.
Clear Ceramic Braces Reviews
"As an adult who has had braces on 2 other occasions, once in the mid 90's (clear braces) and again in 2014 (Invisalign). My teeth were beautiful after my first set of braces but eventually years later my retainers were not fitting and I made the mistake of not purchasing a new set of retainers, so I stopped wearing them and eventually had Invisalign put on. This was the worst mistake, the Invisalign completely changed my bite and moved my teeth so far in that hated my smile and found myself not smiling in photos anymore so I decided to search again for another Ortho but was frustrated about going through not only treatment again but the expense. After searching for an Orthodontist for a few years, I finally found Dr. Benson who is AMAZING! I felt comfortable from the moment I met her and she understood why I was unhappy with the previous treatment of Invisalign . I've been seeing Dr. Benson now for about 3 months and not only is Dr. Benson and her staff (Januari) warm and friendly but they are also very professional and accommodating. Dr. Benson's office is so beautifully decorated with her photography artwork and the office is very modern and clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Benson to anyone looking for an honest, meticulous and affordable Ortho. I am so happy I did not settle with any other Ortho and I know I am definitely at the right place for my treatment.Thank you Dr. Benson and Januari"- L.B. / Google / Aug 22, 2018
The Carriere SLX 3D brackets are made from tooth-colored or clear brackets, making them harder to see compared to conventional metal braces. Therefore, they're a great option for older teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth but don't like the look of traditional metal braces. However, they do need more care than metal braces since they may become stained or yellow if not regularly cleaned. With removable teeth aligning treatments, you face the chance of prolonging treatment when an aligner is missing or not used for the suggested period of time. Thus, ceramic braces are a terrific choice since they provide continuous treatment and are not dependent on compliance.
What to Expect
On the day of your visit, Dr. Benson will clean and polish your teeth with a special cleaner. The clear brackets will be carefully positioned on each individual tooth using the Smile Arc Protection system. When the brackets are in their proper position, a UV (ultraviolet) light will be used to harden the adhesive. This easy procedure shouldn't result in any discomfort and attaches the brackets to your teeth. The last step is threading the wire through each of the brackets and fastening the wire to the brackets. The whole procedure normally takes a few hours to finish.
Once your braces are set, you might have some discomfort as your gums, teeth, and lips adapt to your orthodontic treatment. You should brush your teeth after every meal and floss at least once a day to keep your teeth and ceramic braces in good condition. You will need to schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Benson so she can monitor your progress and adjust your braces as needed. Once your teeth are in place and your braces are removed, Dr. Benson will suggest a retainer to maintain your results.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Benson will discuss your treatment choices and price estimates. The Art of Braces takes a variety of payments and we will offer flexible, no-interest payment plans through our office. If you have dental insurance, a member of our staff will contact your insurance provider to verify your coverage and calculate your out-of-pocket expenses.
