Orthodontic treatment has come a long way since the days when wearing braces automatically meant sporting traditional metal brackets. (You might have heard the term “railroad tracks.”) Yes, metal brackets are still the best or only choice for some people’s courses of treatment, but many patients can choose from alternative types.

Adults and children who want excellent orthodontic care come to the office of Windsor. We know that our patients’ expectations are just as high as ours are. Our relaxed atmosphere and gentle touch complement our superb service. Everyone in our office is an expert in the field of orthodontics. We gladly give our patients as much time as they need to ask questions and tell us about any of their concerns.

Ceramicbraces are attached to the front of teeth. If an orthodontist decides that ceramic braces will suit your situation, white is included in the array of colors in which they are available. The white visually blends in with the teeth. The brackets that adhere to your teeth are white, while the only metal visible is the archwire between teeth. This aesthetically pleasing aspect makes white ceramics alluring to people who prefer their braces to be less obvious.

Adults are especially drawn to their subtlety. Twenty-five percent of orthodontic patients in the U.S. are adults! Those who didn’t have braces as kids or who did but whose teeth have since shifted are choosing (if treatment allows) white ceramic braces. Grownups want to enjoy all of the many cosmetic and oral health benefits of a beautiful smile, as does someone of any age who might forgo braces if it meant a mouth full of metal.

On the average, braces are worn for 22 months. It doesn’t seem like a long time to people who wear white ceramic braces. They’re a terrific choice for adults or reluctant youngsters. An orthodontist can help you decide if ceramic braces are the best treatment plan for you or your child.
