What Are the Benefits of Ceramic Braces in Whittier?
Obviously, the main benefit of these types of braces is the fact that they are not as easy to detect as metal braces. But the benefits do not stop there:
Metal brackets can have sharp edges that can irritate the soft tissues in your mouth (your tongue, lips, and cheeks). You can minimize any irritation and discomfort by putting wax around the offending bracket. However, that is one more step you need to take.
If you are concerned about esthetics, comfort, and saving time, ceramic braces in Whittier might be the best option for you.
The porcelain or ceramic brackets have significantly smoother edges, resulting in little to no discomfort whatsoever.
Sometimes, when you invest in a product or treatment, the more esthetically pleasing option is not always as effective. That is not the case here! Porcelain braces, in Whittier work just as well as metal braces and you will get the same teeth-straightening results.
You might think that the ceramic or porcelain brackets are more fragile than the metal brackets. Actually, we have not noticed any significant differences in durability in all our years of practice.
