Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, our dentist uses ceramic braces mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. To make an appointment with Dr. Russell Taylor and learn more about clear braces in Phoenix, Arizona, call Taylor Dentistry today at 602-957-0075.
