Straighten Your Smile With Clear Braces

Clear braces can be a great alternative to conventional braces and you can get them at our offices in Rapid City, Spearfish, and Pierre. The brackets are made from ceramic material so they’re clearer and harder to notice when compared to metal braces.


Giving You a Clear Alternative to Metal

Differences Between Ceramic & Metal Braces

Metal braces are well-known around South Dakota for their durability and strength. Ceramic braces are tough, too, but they are made from a different, more fragile material that’s more likely to chip or crack.

Traditional braces tend to be better at tolerating pressure than ceramic ones, so if your orthodontist at Meyer & Dana needs to make more drastic corrections, they may recommend metal braces instead.

While there are some clear differences between them, both types of braces work on the same principles and tend to be equally as effective in most cases.

You may be worried about ceramic braces staining, but thankfully that hasn’t been a problem for a while. Ceramic brackets won’t stain, but the adhesive used to attach the brackets to the teeth can stain.

This can give an overall impression of discoloration or staining over time. You can choose to avoid things like coffee and tea, red wine, tomatoes, mustard, etc. to reduce the chances of any staining.

If you maintain a good oral hygiene routine and follow the treatment plan designed by Meyer & Dana Orthodontics, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about giving up your morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.
