Porcelain Ceramic Braces Bixby Knolls, CA

Metal braces are an effective way to straighten teeth, but they are not for everyone, and porcelain ceramic braces are one of the many alternative options available for patients in the North Long Beach and Bixby Knolls areas. They are just as effective as traditional metal braces but with a more natural look. We are happy to offer them here at Dentist of Bixby Knolls.

What Are Porcelain Ceramic Braces?

They are braces made out of porcelain or ceramic instead of metal and work exactly the same way to give you the straight and stunning smile you have always wanted. You will have porcelain brackets attached to your teeth and connected by wires just like you would if you opted for metal braces, but they will be nearly invisible.

What Are the Advantages of Porcelain Ceramic Braces?

The primary advantage of porcelain ceramic braces is their more natural look. Each of the brackets will be matched as closely as possible to your natural tooth color, which means they will blend in, and it will be harder to tell that you have braces at all. The wires can be left silver or can be frosted or white to help them be more invisible.

Porcelain ceramic braces are also easy to maintain, durable, and, unlike Invisalign® clear aligners, cannot be removed, which is an important consideration for parents of children who might not comply properly with treatment.

Who Is a Candidate for Porcelain Ceramic Braces?

Anyone who is a candidate for orthodontic treatment can opt for porcelain ceramic braces. They are especially popular with people who want a more natural look than metal braces but do not want to use Invisalign®.

What Is the Treatment Duration for Porcelain Ceramic Braces?

As with every other form of orthodontic treatment, the treatment time required for porcelain ceramic braces varies from patient to patient but is usually slightly longer than with traditional metal braces. It will depend on how much correction your teeth require and how well you comply with your treatment protocol, among other factors. Treatment typically takes between two and three years for most patients.

How Do I Get
Porcelain Ceramic Braces?

The first step is to come into our Bixby Knolls office for a consultation. After getting an examination and x-rays, you can discuss your orthodontic needs with your orthodontist and what your options are. A treatment plan, including duration and cost, will then be drafted before treatment is started.

Once you approve the treatment plan, you will return to the office to get the braces placed. The brackets will be adhered to your teeth with non-toxic adhesives and connected by wires. After placement, you will return to the office periodically for checkups and adjustments until your treatment is completed, at which time your braces will be removed.

What Is the Cost for Porcelain Ceramic Braces in Bixby Knolls?

Porcelain ceramic braces tend to be slightly more expensive than traditional metal braces because of the specialized materials required. All orthodontic treatments will run you a few thousand dollars before any insurance payments. Our team will contact your insurance company and let you know what your portion of the treatment cost will be when we make your treatment plan.

Due to the high cost of orthodontic treatment and the lack of insurance coverage for most patients, Dentist of Bixby Knolls proudly offers several payment arrangements and financing options to help you take care of your orthodontic needs. Please speak to our staff if you are interested in more information on these options.
