What Are White Braces, And Are They Still A Good Option?

Whilst traditional metal braces were once the only option when it came to teeth-straightening solutions, the dental world has come along way. When considering alternative options, white braces (more precisely known as ceramic braces), offer a great solution. Thanks to their subtle nature, it’s no surprise that their aesthetic makes them an attractive and popular choice.

Why white braces?

Whether you’re seeking out braces for adults or a solution for children, exploring your options is worthwhile. Thanks to technological advancements, traditional metal braces are no longer the only option on offer when it comes to aligning your teeth.

Made from ceramic, white braces are a great alternative option for those who are looking for a teeth-straightening solution that’s less visible. Subtle in nature, white braces are a great way to achieve the smile that you’re looking for, with a focus on aesthetics. The only element of white braces that is visible is the connecting wire, resulting in a tooth-coloured brace that’s discreet.

It’s helpful to note that usually orthodontists are responsible for the treatment and management of ceramic braces. But we suggest that you meet with us first to explore and understand all your options. At your initial orthodontic consultation, we will explore all your options to improving your smile, which includes both ceramic braces and Invisalign®. We work closely with the best orthodontists in town and will be able to point you in the right direction if we feel that ceramic braces are the best, aesthetic teeth-straightening solution for you.

A clear alternative to straightening your teeth

Another effective teeth-straightening solution, and an alternative to ceramic braces, is Invisalign®. Less noticeable than white braces and yet still highly effective, Invisalign® is not hindered by issues that traditional braces are such as food being lodged in between metal wires and their obvious aesthetic. Invisalign® is also likely to be more affordable.

However, as we explore Invisalign®, it’s important to acknowledge from the outset that some individuals may still require traditional metal braces based on their needs and personalised treatment plan. That’s what we can help you to discover.

Not surprisingly, Invisalign® and their clear aligners are an increasingly popular option especially among adults who are looking for a discreet way of teeth straightening.

As Invisalign® explains, “Behind every clear aligner is an industry-leading team of engineers and scientists who are continuously innovating to improve your path to a beautiful smile.”

Drawing on the most advanced technology and pioneered by scientists and engineers alike, Invisalign® is changing the world of braces with its precise approach and research-backed process.

So, just what is Invisalign® and could it be the right solution for you? Let’s take a look.

Results may vary between individuals. Any dental procedure carries risks and benefits.

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® is leading the way when it comes to effective, discreet and comfortable teeth-aligning solutions. As Invisalign® explains, “Your clear aligners are created using industry-leading technology based on your customised treatment plan.”

Not only does Invisalign® offer great aesthetics, it also continues to deliver positive results for clients around the world.

Considering the extensive research, experience and technology that Invisalign® has been founded on, it’s safe to say that they’re doing something right.

However, it’s also important to remember that we are all different and similarly, the teeth-straightening solution that’s right for you will depend on a variety of factors. Whilst Invisalign® may be a great option for some, the same may not be true for others.

That’s why it’s always best to come in to see us first. Although you may have a particular option in mind, it may not necessarily be the best or most efficient teeth-straightening solution for you.

The Dental Room were awarded Invisalign® platinum provider status in 2019 which means we have considerable experience with this treatment option. Add to that, Dr Shawn Rama is a leader in cosmetic dentistry and is highly regarded both here in Australia, as well as overseas.

Ceramic Braces or Invisalign®? Which is right for you?

Determining whether ceramic braces or Invisalign® are the better option will depend on the current condition of your teeth, your needs, finances as well as your aesthetic preferences.

For example, if you would prefer to opt for a discreet and subtle option without any of the issues associated with traditional braces, Invisalign® may be the best option for you.

However, there are times when individuals may require traditional metal braces and thus, choosing between ceramic and Invisalign® simply isn’t an option. That’s why coming in to talk to us is so important.
