Ceramic braces in Richardson, TX

Why choose ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are a more esthetic bracket system than traditional metal braces. 

They are a great choice for patients who do not want the responsibility of Invisalign but do not want to show off braces colors. 

Our orthodontists are here to help guide you towards metal or clear braces but remember, the choice is always yours!

The difference between clear and metal braces is primarily just the look.

Metal braces may be slightly stronger than clear braces and may stain a little easier but if your oral hygiene is maintained both can be a great option. 

If you want to hide that you have braces you may want to choose clear but if you want to show off some colors go with metal braces!

How much will braces costs in Richardson, TX?

The cost of metal and ceramic braces vary a lot due to a couple factors:

1. The length of your treatment time.

2. If you need any other appliances.

3. Your insurance benefits.

Many insurances companies will cover part of your out of pocket costs. Orthodontic insurance can cover anywhere from $1000 to $3500 of your total braces costs. Therefore, your benefits may cover half or more of your total treatment cost! 

Metal braces typically cost anywhere from $3000-$6000 depending on severity of your case. Clear braces are typically an additional $500.

We offer low monthly payment plans at zero percent interest to work within your budget.

We want our Richardson orthodontic patients to be happy with their smile and we work very hard to be within your braces budget. 

Metal braces are traditional but still one of your best options to straighten teeth. Metal braces have come a long way in the past few years as they have gotten smaller and stronger.

Braces consist of several metal brackets attached to the teeth and held together by an orthodontic wire. With the wire held in place by elastics, the teeth will be gradually pushed towards a more ideal alignment.

Straighter teeth are much more attractive, of course, but they also carry a number of benefits that improve your oral health and function. Without crooked teeth and gaps to worry about, taking care of your teeth and gums will be much easier.

Our highly skilled orthodontists have worked on patients as young as 7 years old to as mature as 75!

That's right, you are never too mature to straighten your teeth with either braces or Invisalign.

Worried about financing? No problem! Come in for our free orthodontic consult so we can go over your wide variety of payment options.
