Porcelain and Ceramic Braces Long Beach, CA

For those who don’t like the aesthetics of metal braces, our porcelain or ceramic braces might be the perfect alternative for a more natural look. They’re almost invisible, they’re reasonably easy to maintain, and they effectively realign your smile as well as other forms of braces.

What Are Porcelain or Ceramic Braces?

Porcelain and ceramic braces function the same way that traditional braces do. They realign your teeth for that straight, perfect, dazzling smile you’re longing for. The main difference is that these braces are made of porcelain or ceramic and appear nearly invisible on your smile as they work their orthodontic magic.

The porcelain used to create these braces is a special type of ceramic that’s heated to extremely high temperatures to create the translucent shade of white that matches your natural tooth color almost completely.

This type of braces is a great alternative for folks who need braces but don’t want metal braces or removable aligner trays like Invisalign®.

Porcelain braces use brackets and wires like traditional braces do, and attach to your teeth with non-toxic adhesives to keep them in place during your orthodontic treatment process.

What Are the Benefits of Ceramic Braces?

Ceramic braces offer a variety of distinct advantages for patients.

Ceramic Braces are Durable

Porcelain braces are made from high-quality, extremely durable materials that last for as long as needed for full orthodontic treatment, in many cases.

Porcelain Braces are Natural Looking

Porcelain braces are not 100% invisible, but they’re pretty close. The metal wires required for their effective use are the main parts that are still visible, but these can be made in white or frosted finishes to be more discreet. Ceramic braces are more natural looking than metal braces, though, thanks to the color matching done to your natural tooth color. The archwires may also be colored to match your teeth to blend in more naturally, as well.

Ceramic Braces are Permanent

Ceramic braces are adhered permanently to your teeth when they’re installed by Dr. Hamid. When your treatment is completed, though, they will be removed easily without causing any harm to your teeth.

Are Porcelain Braces Expensive?

Porcelain braces are typically a little more expensive than traditional braces but less so than Invisalign® trays.

Do Porcelain Braces Stain?

Ceramic braces do not stain but remain as close to the natural color of your teeth as when they were placed originally.

Who Should Consider Porcelain Braces?

Ceramic braces are typically considered the best option for folks looking for permanent braces with a more natural look than metal braces.

How Long Does Treatment Last With Porcelain Braces?

Treatment time with porcelain braces will vary from patient to patient, depending on a variety of factors specific to individual patients. Some of those factors may include:

  • The extent of the malocclusion (misalignment of the jaw or teeth)
  • The patient’s ability to care for their braces
  • The patient’s commitment and ability to properly maintain healthy oral hygiene during treatment
  • Any specific complications or challenges a patient may have with orthodontic or dental care

Ceramic braces typically progress through orthodontic treatment a little slower than traditional braces. Most often, patients using ceramic braces may expect to wear them for between two and three years.

How Much Do Ceramic Braces Cost?

Like other braces treatments, porcelain braces generally cost a few thousand dollars or more. They are slightly more expensive than traditional braces because they require specialized materials. Because they take longer to finish treatment than metal braces, they also tend to cost a little more because of additional follow up visits, adjustments and any repairs required throughout treatment.

Many insurance plans, however, cover the costs of ceramic braces throughout the treatment plan. We will happily work with you to create the right payment plan to suit your financial needs and insurance situation.
