Cosmetic braces


Many people today take great care of their physical appearance and this is where cosmetic devices come in, much better and more comfortable to wear than traditional and metallic devices of a lifetime. In addition, they are barely noticeable when you wear them, compared to the visible metallic ones.


Qué son los brackets estéticos


For all this, more and more people want to undergo this type of orthodontic treatment, with which they can wear a beautiful smile and without fear of teaching or showing it in public. So let’s see a little more in detail what these devices are and their relationship to dental aesthetics, a treatment on the agenda.

Main functions of this type of device


When we talk about the functions that aesthetic supports have compared to traditional functions, we can say that the function is the same for both cases. The main advantage is the aesthetic improvement of the patient, because he gains the confidence and self-esteem lost by having to wear metal supports in plain sight.

In addition, the bite itself is corrected at the same time, which also prevents excessive wear of the dental parts. They can be used in orthodontics for children and adults.

We should also add that the duration of this type of oral treatment is exactly the same for traditional orthodontic appliances as it is for esthetic appliances or for porcelain dental appliances found in dental clinics.

Tipos de brackets estéticos

Types of cosmetic brackets


We can come to differentiate several types of these brackets, which will always be based on the needs of each patient individually. Who better than your trusted dentist to advise you to use one or the other support.

Lingual aesthetic brackets


These models are placed on the back of the patient’s teeth, so no one will notice that they are being worn.

In addition, they can be personalized according to the patient, obtaining optimal results in a very short time. Even the dental parts will not suffer, being able to be used even in people allergic to nickel.

Porcelain brackets


These orthodontic appliances are the most commonly used in the vast majority of dental clinics across the country. They are the same color as our natural teeth, so they are really discreet.

Sapphire brackets

The sapphire material is used to make these aesthetic supports, which is an almost transparent material. In addition, the sapphire is never stained, which makes it a perfect material for dental treatments. They are less expensive than Invisalign or invisible orthodontics, obtaining very good end results in other types of orthodontics.


Brackets invisalign


Invisalign clear aligners


It is a type of removable treatment that goes completely unnoticed, giving rise to what is called invisible orthodontics. It is, without a doubt, the best way that exists today to obtain an esthetic, healthy and perfect smile. Also known as transparent brackets.

In addition to all this, invisible orthodontics or Invisalign has a number of advantages such as the following:

These are cosmetic devices that are tailor-made for each patient, so you will not suffer from any type of friction while wearing it.

As we have seen, this is a removable orthodontic appliance, so you can remove it whenever you go to eat or when you need to brush your teeth.

Also highlight the comfort and simplicity of wearing it.
