A clear alternative to metal braces
Clear braces blend in well with your natural smile and make treatment more subtle than ever. Though they’re not completely invisible, and the brackets are about the same size and shape, they’re much less noticeable than metal braces.
Ceramic braces offer patients a discreet treatment option, but they can be slightly more fragile and more expensive than metal braces. As a result, Dr. McGrory typically recommends them for older teen and adult patients.
Blend in with clear braces
Ceramic brackets are a more discreet way to straighten your smile when paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties. This choice is fantastic if you’re an aesthetic-minded adult or teen in Lake Jackson.
Ceramic braces are perfect if you want a treatment option that’s not too obvious but don’t want the extra hassle of removable aligners and the responsibility of keeping up with wear time.
At Lake Jackson Orthodontics, most of our patients in clear braces love how discrete they are, we do have some teens and adults who like to use colored ligature ties. This gives braces an almost neon look. The colors pop off the clear brackets, creating a really unique look most people haven’t seen before.
Cost of ceramic braces
One of the biggest factors that affect the cost of your orthodontic treatment at Lake Jackson Orthodontics will be the materials used to make your braces. In our office, ceramic brackets cost a little more than metal brackets.
The good news is we offer flexible payment plans and a paid-in-full discount, and we will also check with your insurance company for orthodontic benefits. Our goal is to provide you with outstanding value for reasonable fees! Your treatment fees will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. McGrory will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our office will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
The work it takes to put your braces on, adjust them, and take them off, must also be factored into the total cost of treatment. Placing and removing ceramic braces takes a great more technique and requires more time.
At your first free consultation, your treatment coordinator will be happy to go over the cost and answer any questions you may have.
