Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on teenage and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns.
What are Radiance Brackets?
Radiance brackets are specially cut from a single crystal of pure sapphire. Once the cutting is complete, the brackets are heat polished until they are smooth, clear, and ready to wear!
Radiance brackets are:
- Clear – unlike any other brackets on the market, Radiance brackets are invisible! You’ll feel confident smiling even during your orthodontic treatment.
- Comfortable – Radiance brackets are cut from a single crystal of pure sapphire. The crystal is honed and heat polished into a remarkably strong, smooth and beautiful bracket that’s nearly invisible on the teeth. The brackets are so smooth, you won’t need to worry about the edges irritating your mouth like traditional braces can.
- Stain-Free – Your Radiance brackets are stain-free! The bracket’s highly polished surface protects your teeth from staining and discoloration throughout your entire treatment, so that your smile stays bright from start to finish.
- Strong – Radiance brackets are designed to be the strongest brackets available. Each Radiance Plus™ bracket is created from a single crystal of pure grown sapphire – one of the hardest materials in nature, second only to diamond. Being cut from crystal and treated with heat until smooth ensures a solid bracket that is remarkably strong, and less likely to crack or break.
