      Metal and Ceramic Braces

      Cost-effective solution to straighten your teeth.

      Here at The Dome MedDental Clinic, metal and ceramic braces are two of the most common and effective methods used in orthodontics to straighten teeth and correct bite problems. Both options offer a reliable path towards achieving a healthy and confident smile.

      Metal and ceramic braces work by applying gentle, constant pressure to your teeth over time. Our Special Orthodontist will bond brackets to each of your tooth, and then connect these brackets with a flexible archwire. As the archwire is tightened during adjustments, it puts pressure on the teeth, causing them to gradually move into their desired positions. The specific movements and adjustments are planned and monitored by your orthodontist throughout the treatment process.

      Choosing Between Metal and Ceramic Braces

      The best choice between metal and ceramic braces depends on your individual
      needs and preferences. Here are some factors to consider:

      Desired Level of Discreetness

      If aesthetics are a major concern, ceramic braces might be a better choice due to their less noticeable appearance.

      Budget

      Metal braces are generally the most cost-effective option.

      Your Orthodontist's Recommendation

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Treatment times can vary depending on the complexity of your individual case. In general, orthodontic treatment with braces typically takes 12-24 months to complete. However, some cases may require more or less time. Your orthodontist will be able to provide a more accurate estimate of your treatment duration during your consultation.

      Both metal and ceramic braces are very effective in straightening teeth. Metal braces might have a slight advantage in handling complex tooth movements due to their higher durability. However, ceramic braces are just as effective for most cases.

      Ceramic braces are designed to be less noticeable than metal braces due to their tooth-colored material. This can be a significant advantage for patients who are self-conscious about their smile during treatment.

      Metal braces are generally the most affordable option compared to ceramic braces due to the materials used.

      Yes, you will likely need to make some adjustments to your diet while wearing braces. Hard, sticky, and chewy foods can damage the brackets and wires. Your orthodontist will provide specific dietary recommendations during your treatment.

      Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial while wearing braces. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily is essential for removing plaque and food particles that can get trapped around the brackets and wires. Your orthodontist will also recommend specific cleaning tools to ensure proper hygiene during treatment.
