Clear Ceramic Braces in Prosper & Melissa
Did you know that we offer ceramic braces made of a clear, crystal material? We do! Our clear ceramic braces work just like traditional metal braces, except that you can hardly tell that you are wearing them. Each smooth bracket is made of a translucent material to seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth. If you’re interested in learning more about this treatment, please call and schedule a free consultation with our staff today.
About the Procedure
When it comes to clear braces, we offer this orthodontic treatment to children and adults based on their correction needs and aesthetic goals. Time in braces can range from 1 – 2 years but will ultimately depend on the severity of the case. Once the braces are placed on the teeth, the patient will have to return about every 6 weeks for an adjustment until the treatment is completed.
The treatment duration for clear ceramic braces varies based on individual orthodontic needs and the complexity of the case. Generally comparable to traditional metal braces, the process typically spans 18 months to several years. Regular adjustments every 4-6 weeks allow the orthodontist to fine-tune the alignment. Factors influencing the timeline include the extent of correction required, the patient's adherence to care guidelines, and the body's response to tooth movement. While the aesthetic appeal of clear ceramic braces lies in their subtle appearance, it's crucial for patients to understand that achieving optimal results necessitates patience and consistent oral care. Clear ceramic braces provide an effective means of achieving a straighter smile with a less conspicuous appearance, making them a popular choice for individuals seeking a discreet orthodontic solution.
What Are the Benefits?
Our clear ceramic braces at Bietsch Orthodontics offers a comfortable, clear choice in occlusion correction. If you’re someone that spends a lot of time in front of crowds or the camera, chances are you don’t want noticeable metal braces for everyone to see. Patients that seek clear braces can benefit from the discretion of how subtle they appear on one’s teeth. They provide an aesthetically pleasing look with all the same functionality as traditional metal braces.
A few other the benefits of clear ceramic braces include:
- Looks almost invisible on your teeth
- A good option for those who don’t like the appearance of metal brackets
- Corrects crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth
- Corrects overbites and underbites
Maintaining Your Smile
Soreness will be expected during the first week of you wear your braces. Pain and discomfort will subside as time goes on. To ensure your braces are not disrupted, we’ll send you home with personalized aftercare instructions, as well as a list of foods that are good to eat with braces and those that can give your braces problems. We recommend avoiding foods that are hard, sticky, or chewy.

LOVE LOVE the expertise and precise character Dr. Bietsch and his staff have. Two of my children have had to get orthodontics for a second time because of bad outcomes.
