Ceramic Braces

Grand Rapids Ceramic Braces

If having noticeable metal braces on your teeth is a concern for you, one option available for treatment is ceramic braces. Our Grand Rapids orthodontists are proud to offer Radiance Plus®, the clearest ceramic twin bracket available.

Each Radiance Plus bracket is created from a single crystal of pure grown sapphire – the crystal is then honed and heat polished into a remarkably strong and beautiful bracket that's nearly invisible.

Here’s what you need to know about choosing clear ceramic braces for your orthodontic treatment. 

Benefits of Ceramic Braces

If you work in a profession where you’re constantly meeting with people or performing in front of them, you may have cosmetic concerns with regards to orthodontic treatment. We get it, visible metal on your teeth can make you feel self-conscious. For this reason, our orthodontists may suggest you go with ceramic braces.

Learn MoreHow Do Ceramic Braces Differ From Traditional Braces?

Because they consist of clear brackets and if desired, clear archwires, ceramic braces are not immediately apparent. Their nearly invisible appearance allows them to blend in with your teeth and not stand out. Our orthodontists have recommended ceramic braces to plenty of teen and adult orthodontic patients.

In general, wearing ceramic braces offer:

  • A toned down look
  • Clear or tooth-colored components that closely match your natural enamel
  • The same effective and proven orthodontic technology as traditional braces
  • A discreet option for those with severe cases of malocclusion who don’t otherwise qualify for Invisalign® clear aligners
  • A reduced chance of imaging (MRI) scan interference
