Ceramic Braces vs Metal Braces in Greenville SC

At White Brown Smiles Orthodontist of Greenville SC we understand the importance of getting the proper information to make a sound decision on ceramic braces vs metal braces.


Metal braces are typically consist of brackets placed on your teeth and wires that are tightened to help move the teeth into the correct and straight alignment. They are made of stainless steel brackets and wires are typically metal alloy.

Ceramic braces are clear or tooth like in color making them barely noticeable but still have metal wires. They can be paired with tooth-colored wires giving the most natural look. Metal braces on the other hand, are less inconspicuous and the least favorite option for the patient who is looking for the subtle option.


Strength and Durability

In the strength and durability category the traditional metal braces would hold up best for longer periods of time. The ceramic braces tend to chip when used for extended periods of time. Metal braces can withstand force better compared to the ceramic option.

Both metal and ceramic braces function the same. They both apply pressure to the teeth, causing them to align and straighten over a period of time. The full process can take as little as a year but as many as three years. Consider all the pros and cons when making the final decision.
