Are There Any Advantages of Porcelain Ceramic Braces Over Invisalign?
Porcelain braces are the least expensive option in discreet braces. They can also treat more serious orthodontic conditions than InvisalignⓇ trays can treat, while still appearing less noticeable than metal braces. Porcelain braces also cannot be lost, unlike aligner trays which are removable.
What Is The Process For Getting Porcelain Ceramic Braces?
The process for ceramic braces is the same as for metal braces.
After your initial consultation with us here at Orthodontics of Santa Barbara, you will be scheduled for your placement appointment. Dr. Hamid Barkhordar will design a treatment plan uniquely customized to meet your orthodontic needs, while fitting your budget and schedule.
Generally, when you come in for your placement appointment, you will spend about two hours having your braces placed. This allows for each step of the process to be done carefully, gently, and pain-free. During the braces placement process:
- Your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned to ensure the best long-term quality of your braces
- The surface of your teeth will be conditioned to prepare them for the braces
- The brackets of the braces will be cemented in place using non-toxic adhesive
- The arch wires will be placed
After your braces are placed, you will periodically come into the office for adjustments on your braces. These small adjustments help make sure that your treatment progresses as planned, on schedule, and as comfortably as possible.
