Ceramic Braces in Pinner
Smiling is a natural reaction that happens when we’re happy, excited, or just in a good mood.
But did you know that for a large percentage of people in the UK, smiling is a cause of anxiety and low self-esteem?
According to a recent study, one in five British adults feels that a bad smile affects their self-confidence more than their weight, hair, or wrinkles.
Additionally, they believe that crooked, overlapping, or misaligned teeth force them to smile less and become more introverted¹.
A bad smile shouldn’t define your personality, so why not address the dental concerns that are holding you back?
Braces have come a long way in recent years, and modern orthodontics can offer you bespoke solutions.
Ceramic braces are one of these solutions, and the professional dentists here at West House Dental in London can assist you on the road to a flawless smile.
- Ceramic braces are an excellent option if you have crooked, misaligned teeth, or bite problems (underbite or overbite).
- They are the same size and shape as traditional braces, but the brackets are made from ceramic or porcelain.
- Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
- They are the perfect middle ground between traditional braces and Invisalign.
What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces are an orthodontic solution designed to correct crooked and overlapping teeth, as well as teeth with bite problems.
They are fixed braces, just like the traditional ones, the only difference being the material they are made of.
Unlike traditional braces, which are made of metal, ceramic braces have brackets and ties that are designed to blend in with your teeth.
Are ceramic braces right for you?
If you’ve been thinking about seeing an orthodontist for a while now, but feel that traditional metal braces don’t match your lifestyle, ceramic braces may be the alternative you were looking for.
With ceramic braces, both the brackets and the ties are made to be as discrete as possible.
So, if you’re uncomfortable with the idea of wearing metal braces at work and you’re looking for something more subtle, ceramic braces are an excellent choice.
Depending on your natural teeth shade, you can opt for transparent or coloured braces, so that they blend in perfectly and achieve a natural result.
Both in terms and looks and cost, ceramic braces are a middle ground between traditional braces and Invisalign.
Will ceramic braces affect my lifestyle?
The aim of ceramic braces are to correct your orthodontic issues in a discrete way, so that you can smile with confidence.
However, being made of ceramic, not metal, one thing you should know beforehand is that these braces stain more easily, so if you consume coloured foods or drinks regularly, you will have to pay more attention to this for the duration of the treatment.
Our Pinner clinic in North West London was established with the patient’s needs in mind.
We understand that each case is different and that correcting orthodontic issues requires a bespoke approach, so we will recommend a solution that best matches your expectations and lifestyle.
