Dental braces are used for orthodontic treatment in Singapore to correct the misalignment of teeth. Braces have both aesthetic and functional benefits. Besides creating a lovely smile, having your teeth properly aligned also makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene. There are several types of braces, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The type of braces that you should use will depend on your aesthetic preference and lifestyle.
Ceramic braces straighten teeth in the same way as traditional metal braces. The components include brackets, wires and elastomerics. Ceramic brackets come in polycrystalline and monocrystalline options and these determine the translucency of the braces. While commonly more expensive than metal braces, there are a number of reasons why you should consider ceramic dental braces.
How they compare to metal braces?
Ceramic braces may be a good choice if require a more aesthetic option to straighten your teeth. They are an attractive option for working professionals or students as they don’t involve metal brackets or wires and are ideal for people who want to straighten their teeth without drawing attention to themselves.
Special notice should be taken to the delicate nature of traditional clear ceramic braces as the clear or white elastomeric ties tend to be more easily stained. Those interested in them should keep this in mind and avoid certain foods and beverages. Cost would also be an important consideration due to these aesthetic options being more expensive.
