White braces, also called ceramic braces, are a discreet type of braces constructed like braces made of metal. The ceramic used to make white braces can be tinted to various degrees, ensuring that the brackets easily blend in with the teeth. White wires are also available to further increase the level of discretion. Like metal braces, this treatment from our East Los Angeles white braces expert is adaptable to a wide range of treatment goals and can be used for patients of all ages.
This treatment from our expert in white braces in East Los Angeles is similar to metal braces in some ways but different in other ways. While the basic construction of white braces is similar to that of metal braces, the unique materials reduce abrasion while increasing discretion. Although the ceramic is strong, it does require a bit more care to avoid damage during treatment. The ceramic used for white braces is not only tinted to match the teeth but is also resistant to stains. However, patients should still rinse and brush their teeth after consuming heavily pigmented foods and drinks to maintain the discretion of their treatment.
