Blend In With
Clear braces can be a resounding replacement for conventional braces in Dothan. Clear braces come with tooth-colored ceramic brackets that blend in with your natural smile's color.
Clear the Way for Ceramic Braces
Clear ceramic braces give you the confidence you need to flash an amazing smile during and after treatment.
Clear braces are made from a translucent ceramic material that blends in with the color of your teeth and resists staining.
Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces
People all around Dothan know metal braces for their strength and durability.
Ceramic braces are also rigid but are made from a different, more fragile material that’s more likely to chip or crack.
Traditional braces are also better at tolerating pressure than newer ceramic ones. If you need Dr. Lewis to create more drastic corrections, metal braces could be a better option.
Adjustments with ceramic braces have to be slightly smaller, so it can take KBL Orthodontics a little more time to align your teeth.
Having said that, both braces work on the same principles and tend to be equally effective in most cases.
You may be worried about ceramic braces staining, but that hasn’t been a problem for several years. Ceramic brackets won’t stain. But, the adhesive used to attach the brackets to the teeth and the clear elastic ties used to hold the wires in place can stain.
This can give an overall impression of discoloration or staining over time. You can choose to avoid things like coffee and tea, red wine, tomatoes, mustard, etc., to cut back on the chance of any staining. This isn’t necessary since Dr. Lewis ensures we change your elastics at every adjustment appointment.
If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan designed by Dr. Lewis, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
Cost of Ceramic Braces
Your treatment fee at KBL Orthodontics will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment.
Dr. Lewis will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our team will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
The good news is that Dr. Lewis offers you flexible payment plans and automatic bank drafts, and we will also check with your Alabama insurance company for orthodontic benefits. We aim to provide outstanding value to Dothan and beyond for a reasonable fee.
At our office in Dothan, ceramic brackets cost a little more than metal brackets.
One of the most significant factors impacting your total treatment cost at KBL Orthodontics will be the materials we use for your braces.
We need to factor in the work it takes to put your braces on, adjust them, and remove them into your total treatment cost.
Placing and removing ceramic braces demands more attention and technique from our experts at KBL Orthodontics, requiring more time.
Our treatment coordinators will be happy to discuss the cost with you at your first free consultation at our office in Dothan.
Best for Adults
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Lewis, we can determine which treatment option best suits you and your smile.
At KBL Orthodontics, ceramic braces suit adults and older teens better than children and younger teens.
This is because ceramic brackets are more likely to break and are more expensive than metal brackets.
