Learn About Clear Braces In Syracuse, NY
With advancements in orthodontics over the past decade, patients who want straighter smiles are no longer given just one option for treatment. At the Manlius orthodontic office of Dr. David Konys, we provide patients with treatment options that include clear, removable braces from Invisalign® and tooth-colored ceramic braces.
Invisible Braces from Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen
Clear orthodontics are a popular choice among both teens and adults who want to correct issues associated with crowded, gapped, and even tilted or twisted teeth, without having a smile full of metal. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign® is removable and virtually invisible – no one you encounter in a social or professional environment will have to know that you have braces.
Invisalign® uses custom-molded trays that snap snugly over teeth to help re-position your smile. To create a precise and comfortable fit for your aligner trays, our orthodontist utilizes digital scans of your mouth. That data is sent to the Invisalign® laboratories for personalization of your treatment. Typically 5 sets of aligners are given at each appointment, so patients can go 10-12 weeks without having to return for follow-up visits. Invisalign® is removable, so patients can conveniently take out the aligners to eat and brush their teeth – no more dental picks and special floss threaders to clean around orthodontic appliances.
These clear braces make orthodontics more appealing to teenage and adults patients who are concerned about their appearances and do not wish to have metal braces. Dr. Konys is a certified Invisalign® and Invisalign® teen provider to Manlius, Fayetteville, Syracuse, and surrounding cities.
Beautiful Smiles with Natural-Looking Ceramic Braces
Another option for cosmetically-appealing treatment is ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are a hybrid between traditional orthodontics and modern materials. Instead of silver metal, the brackets used are made from tooth-colored ceramic, which blends in naturally with the color of dental enamel.
Ceramic braces from our Manlius orthodontist are an ideal solution for patients who need more extensive care with traditional orthodontia, but still want the low-profile appearance of clear braces. When you smile, you won’t display a mouth full of metal – ceramic brackets will more naturally match the shade of dental enamel, so you can feel confident during treatment. To further their cosmetic appearance, the wires used with this treatment can also be tooth-colored to match natural teeth.
