Not digging metal braces? Then ceramic braces may be your choice! At Lineberger Orthodontics, Dr. Matt Lineberger, Dr. Megan Lineberger, Dr. David Pearson and Dr. Claire Fedore offer ceramic braces for the residents of Charlotte, Huntersville and Mooresville in North Carolina.
Ceramic braces are just one of the ways that Lineberger Orthodontics makes wearing braces more convenient for our patients.
Instead of having metal brackets and bands which everyone can clearly see, the brackets attached to your teeth are made of a ceramic material that is more discreet. Suh-weeeet!
The Damon Clear bracket system allows patients the benefits of traditional orthodontics without the traditional metal look.
Damon clear ceramic braces work the same way as traditional metal Damon braces, except people have to look really hard to see them. The standard set up for ceramic braces is having a bracket bonded to each of the front teeth.
The wire is laid on top of the brackets and held in place via a door mechanism incorporated into the bracket. This reduces the need for colored ties to be placed on the teeth, if preferred.
This design slowly moves your teeth each time the archwire is adjusted. It sounds complicated, but we swear it’s easy peasy.
We can give you pricing for ceramic and traditional braces to help you decide; the results of both types of treatments are similar.
Many dental insurance plans include covering some of the cost of braces. When you schedule your complimentary consultation, our office will contact your dental insurance carrier to see what coverage your specific plan has.
