When it comes to straightening your teeth, there are several treatment options available from our Marietta orthodontist. Traditional braces, as well as clear braces, clear aligner therapy, lingual braces that go on the back side of your teeth, and ceramic braces are the most common.
How Are Ceramic Braces Different?
Ceramic braces us the same bracket and wire technique as traditional braces but the brackets are made from tooth colored ceramic rather than metal. This helps to camouflage the fact that you’re going through orthodontic treatment. They’re great for adult patients who may prefer to avoid metal appliances on their teeth.
How Long is The Treatment for Ceramic Braces?
In most cases, ceramic braces take the same amount of time to straighten your teeth as traditional braces do. That’s because they use the same patterns of tooth movement and overall design. Depending on the person, the average length of treatment is between one to two years. We can provide you with a more accurate estimate at the time of your initial evaluation.
How Much Do Ceramic Braces Cost?
Since they are a special kind of orthodontic treatment, ceramic braces do cost more than traditional braces. But on a month to month basis, it’s not all that much more. Insurance may cover a certain percentage of the cost, up to a total amount, for patients in a specific age bracket.
Our financial coordinator will go over your individual treatment cost with you and discuss what your payment options are.
