The Clear Choice
About Ceramic Braces in Bandera & Windcrest
At Texas Family Orthodontics, we’re proud to offer ceramic braces to our patients in Windcrest, Bandera and surrounding areas! Also known as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, or aesthetic braces, these work just like metal braces.
Our clear braces are designed to be less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. They're smaller than ever and made of nearly invisible tooth-colored polycrystalline ceramic material.
Blend in With Clear Braces
Countless studies conducted over the past several years have shown that having an attractive smile increased your self-esteem and makes you much more appealing to other people.
The best way to improve your smile? Straighter teeth!
Unfortunately, many people have avoided straightening their teeth because of the embarrassment of wearing metal braces for months or years.
But now, thanks to advances in orthodontics like clear braces, many people can enjoy all the benefits of straighter teeth without ever having to suffer through the embarrassment of metal braces.
These revolutionary appliances are quite different than other braces. Many people can enjoy all the benefits of straighter teeth without ever having to suffer the embarrassment of metal braces.
We use Radiance brackets, and they’re quite different than other braces. The brackets are invisible and polished until the surface is completely smooth. No one will even notice you’re wearing them, and you’ll be so comfortable you might forget, too!
Radiance brackets are some of the strongest clear braces currently available and are unlikely to break or crack. This is because they’re made from pure grown sapphire, one of the most durable materials in nature.
And the surface of these brackets protects your teeth from staining while you’re wearing them!
Propel Accelerated Treatment
The Propel system can shift your teeth up to 50% faster and can even make your treatment with ceramic braces more comfortable!
The devices and procedures involved in this cutting-edge technology stimulate the bone around your teeth while also helping soft tissue heal faster.
The Propel system can be used with traditional metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign clear aligners. Thanks to the Propel system, you'll enjoy fewer office visits a shorter overall treatment.
The system is particularly useful for patients who are still experiencing active bone growth, including teenagers and young adults in their twenties.
Cost of Ceramic Braces
One of the biggest factors that affect your treatment cost will be the materials used to make your braces.
In our Bandera and Windcrest offices, ceramic brackets cost a little more than metal brackets.
The good news is, we offer flexible payment plans, automatic bank drafts, and we will also check with your insurance company for orthodontic benefits. Our goal is to provide outstanding value for reasonable fees!
Treatment fees will vary depending on the complexity of your orthodontic treatment. Dr. Vo will determine a treatment fee that fits your specific orthodontic needs, and our office will do everything we can to accommodate you and your budget.
The work it takes to put your braces on, adjust them, and take them off must also be factored into the total treatment cost. Placing and removing ceramic braces are more sensitive to technique and requires more time.
Our treatment coordinators will be happy to go over the cost with you at your first free consultation.
Best for Adults
After a thorough orthodontic evaluation with Dr. Vo, we can determine which treatment option will be best for you and your smile.
If you’ve always wanted straighter teeth but aren’t willing to go through the experience of wearing metal braces, clear braces could be the perfect choice for you.
