Ceramic Braces in Concord, NH

Smile with confidence

A clear solution for a beautiful smile

If you want to improve your smile and oral health, braces can be a great option whether you are an adult, teen, or child.

Ceramic braces (also known as clear braces) are more discreet than traditional braces. While traditional braces are made of metal, clear braces are made of a type of ceramic that blends with the natural color of your teeth.

Ceramic braces are a discreet, esthetic, and effective way to improve your smile. Besides being almost unnoticeable, they offer several benefits:

  • They straighten crooked teeth and fix bite problems.
  • Being virtually invisible, clear braces do not affect your confidence or self-esteem.
  • They improve your overall dental health, minimizing the risk of developing dental issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Just like metal braces, ceramic braces are highly durable.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I take care of my ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are highly durable — you can expect them to last the entire duration of your treatment. Yet, there are some instructions you need to follow to ensure they stay as good as new:

  • Brush your teeth after each meal and floss at least once a day
  • Follow all the cleaning instructions that we will give you 
  • Avoid hard or sticky foods 
  • Keep up with your regular check-ups
  • If you like practicing contact sports, wear a mouthguard to protect your braces

Do clear braces get stained?

Ceramic brackets do not get stained, but their elastics can. To prevent this, avoid smoking and reduce dark drinks or foods, such as coffee, red wine, or tomato pasta sauce. You don’t have to eliminate completely your favorite foods and drinks, we will change your elastics at every visit and for special occasions!

To ensure that your clear braces always look great, follow the advice of our experienced clinical staff!

Invisalign or clear braces. Which one is best for me?

Both Invisalign and ceramic braces offer a discrete, effective way to treat orthodontic issues. Both of them have great advantages, but the right one for you will depend on your specific needs and budget.

At our office, Dr. Luba Richter will evaluate your concerns and medical condition and will work with you to find out the best treatment for you or your child. She will guide you through our different alternatives and answer all your questions so you can feel comfortable with your decision.

Will braces help with an overbite?

Yes! Ceramic clear braces can treat the same issues as metal braces, including overbites, underbites, and other problems, like gapped teeth. The only difference between these two treatments is purely aesthetic.
