At Daher Orthodontics in Calgary, we offer patients clear ceramic braces and APA metal braces depending on your smile goals.
Gone are the days of heavy headgear and large, cumbersome brackets. Today's braces are streamlined, comfortable and low profile. In some cases, they're nearly invisible, making them a truly viable option for adults and teens who are concerned about aesthetics.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and therefore are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are used mainly for older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.
While they are visually less prominent, they require more attention to oral hygiene because ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Clarity Advanced Ceramic braces is a unique and innovative system of braces featuring small translucent brackets that blend in with your teeth, making them virtually unnoticeable.
The brackets are durable and resistant to staining and discoloration during treatment. Clarity Advanced braces are comfortable and offer brilliant aesthetics and efficient performance. They are perfect for patients of all ages. To find out if Clarity Advanced braces
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile. They are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth; the metal appliances are created uniquely for you.
Lingual braces are a great option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
Traditional metal braces are the most common type, and more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colourful smile.
These braces are very popular amongst our pre-teen and teenaged patients. They’re durable and look fantastic with all of the different colour ties to choose from.
