Any parent who has a teenager at home can relate to all the special challenges children face at that age.
There’s so much pressure on kids today to feel accepted amongst their peer group, and it’s only made harder when facing the possibility of wearing braces. Appearance is important at any age, but especially during those delicate teen years.
That’s why our team at Smiles by Dr. W & Dr. R are proud to give you alternatives to standard metal braces. It gives our younger patients a path to a great-looking smile that doesn’t require them to feel self-conscious day in and day out while they wait for their braces to get the job done!
Ceramic braces are one of those alternatives, and today, we’re taking a closer look at what makes them different from metal braces. You’ll learn why young patients, especially teenagers, love this option.
Why Teens Love Clear Ceramic Braces
At Smiles by Dr. W & Dr. R, you have a wide selection of orthodontic options to choose from, but here are some common reasons teenagers often prefer our clear ceramic braces:
Just like metal braces, clear braces work!
Everyone’s goal with orthodontic treatment is to straighten crooked teeth, right? That’s why we often rely on ceramic braces to reach the same results you get with metal braces. You don’t have to trade one benefit for another when either option will give you the smile you want!
*They’re Hard To Spot*
You still wear brackets and wires like traditional braces, but our ceramic brackets allow you to undergo treatment without announcing it to the world.
That’s because this stain-resistant material can be adjusted to blend in with your teeth’s natural shade. We can even match your wires to your teeth, as well!
*They Preserve Your Confidence*
Along those same lines, ceramic braces aren’t invisible, but they’re clear and difficult enough to spot that many teens feel more confident about their appearance while wearing them.
Teenagers have so much to deal with everyday, especially in the age of social media, where any flaw in their appearance can result in feelings of insecurity, inadequacy, and embarrassment.
Our orthodontists completely understand the social pressures facing our teen patients and want to do all we can to improve their orthodontic experience as much as possible.
Clear braces allow us to do that.
