Blend In With Ceramic Braces
Giving You a Clear Alternative to Metal
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials, so they’re less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, at Icon Orthodontics we mainly use ceramic braces on teenage and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns.
While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene since ceramic braces are larger. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits with certain foods and smoking.
Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces
Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces. Virtually invisible, Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth more efficiently and comfortably with a beautiful, healthy, and confident smile as your finished result.
Some clear braces have very visible metal parts or elastic ties that can stain during treatment. But tieless Damon Clear braces are more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration throughout your treatment. It’s a “barely there” look, and many people will not be able to tell you’re wearing braces!
While treatment time can vary, clinical studies demonstrate that Damon System treatment is up to six months faster than traditional braces.
And while invisible aligners can be effective at straightening some crooked teeth, not everyone is a candidate. In contrast, Damon Clear works 24 hours a day, seven days a week to perfectly align ALL teeth for a phenomenal smile that enhances your entire facial appearance.
Cost of Ceramic Braces
Your treatment fee at Icon Orthodontics will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Sarpo and Dr. Sun will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our team will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
One of the biggest factors impacting your total treatment cost at Icon Orthodontics will be the materials we use for your braces. At our offices in Glendale and Surprise, ceramic brackets cost a little more than metal brackets.
The good news is that we offer flexible payment plans, automatic bank drafts, and we will also check with your Arizona insurance company for orthodontic benefits. Our goal is to provide outstanding value to Glendale, Surprise, and beyond for a reasonable fee.
We need to factor in the work it takes to put your braces on, adjust them, and remove them into your total treatment cost. Placing and removing ceramic braces demands more attention and technique from our experts at Icon Orthodontics and this requires more time.
Our treatment coordinators will be happy to go over the cost with you at your first free consultation at our offices in Glendale and Surprise.
Call our insurance specialist today to verify your insurance benefits prior to your appointment. In many cases, this can greatly reduce your out-of-pocket investment into orthodontic treatment.
Best for Adults
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Sarpo and Dr. Sun, we can determine which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.
At Icon Orthodontics, we generally think ceramic braces suit adults and older teens better than children and younger teens. This is because ceramic brackets are more likely to break, and they're more expensive than metal brackets.
