CERAMIC BRACES

Ceramic braces are a great choice of orthodontic treatment tools for both children and adults as the ceramic brackets match the color of your teeth making them less noticeable. Today more teens prefer ceramic braces as they are more discreet compared with metal brackets. 

Treatment times, comfort and appointment sequence are the same as traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces today are as strong as metal braces. At Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic, we offer the highest quality of ceramic brackets providing excellent results every time.

What are the benefits of ceramic braces?

  • Less noticeable because brackets match the color of the teeth.
  • They adhere to teeth as strong as metal braces.
  • No discoloration throughout the treatment as the ceramic brackets are stain-resistant
  • At Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic we use tooth-color wires and ties to make your braces less visible and noticeable.

Do ceramic braces stain during treatment?

Ceramic is a natural material and does not stain with food or beverages. However, the clear elastic ties that are used to connect the wires to the brackets may stain certain type of foods with strong tannins such as curry, turmeric, saffron or an excessive amount of coffee, tea or red wine. Smoking tobacco products also is a major factor causing staining on the elastics and braces. At Dr. Tosun Dental Clinic we always encourage our smoking patients to consider other options and also change the elastic bands at the monthly visits to keep them clear and unnoticeable.

Do ceramic braces damage my teeth during debonding?

Absolutely not! Ceramic braces are bonded on the teeth with the same adhesive used for traditional metal braces. During debonding, the ceramic material may crack due to pressure applied by the pliers but does not cause any damage to the tooth enamel. After debonding the adhesive stayed on the enamel surface will be cleaned and the surface will be perfectly polished back to its original condition.

Will there be any stains on my teeth after ceramic braces are taken off?

Ceramic braces or adhesive is not harmful to the enamel of the tooth. However, consuming acidic drinks such as soda or fruit juices and lack of hygiene during orthodontic treatment could cause inflammation on the gums and white spot lesions which are harmful to the enamel. At Dr Tosun Dental Clinic we pay close attention to your oral hygiene.

Are ceramic braces weaker than metal braces?

Ceramic and metal braces are bonded on the teeth with the same type of adhesive and there is absolutely no difference between the two materials’ bonding strength on the enamel. However, certain hard and sticky foods such as apple, nuts, popcorn, chewing gum or toffees should be avoided throughout orthodontic treatment not to damage the braces.

Dear Dr Tosun,

I set out below a draft text of the testimonial:

Dr Tosun started my orthodontic treatment about 2.5 years ago. Complications arose when i had an infection and needed to have a tooth removed. At this point Dr Tosun worked with Dr Hani and they decided to carry out an innovative treatment in order to grow more bone before removing the tooth,  doing a bone graft an eventually an implant. They worked together effectively, were very flexible and supportive throughout.

The practice is very modern and well equipped to the highest standard and the team efficient and very helpful.

I have been extremely happy with everything and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them

Both our children went to Dr. Tosun for their braces. Excellent orthodontist!! They have beautiful smiles because of him😊 Because of the package Dr. Tosun offered we did not have pay extra when my son had some issues with his braces. Dr. Tosun always took the time to explain things to us, but was always ON TIME with his appointments. We can highly recommend his clinic!!

Having been referred to Dr Tosun by my wife, I have been receiving Orthodontic treatment for the past 11 months. The service and expertise provided has been excellent.

On the rare occasion I needed a quick appointment and Dr Tosun is always on hand to give in person help or help via email. I would highly recommend anyone with Orthodontic needs to feel confident when dealing with Yahya Tosun.

I decided to get braces after my brother had them done in the UK and I was unable to tell he even had them on for a few days. I looked around at several dentists until I came across Dr Tosun. He seemed to know exactly what he was talking about and gave me some good advice. He advised that it was likely to take 2 years for the treatment and it ended up only taking 21 months in the end.

Dr Tosun is very professional and friendly and if there was ever any problem (on holiday and had a question) he would always respond very efficiently by e-mail with some advice. If I needed to go in to get something checked I was almost always able to go that same day and be fitted in between other appointments, I am very happy with the outcome of my orthodontic work and regularly get comments about my good teeth, thank you Dr Tosun.

You will always feel welcomed at Dr Tosun’s clinic. The staff are kind and professional and Dr Tosun did a great job with my daughter’s braces. He took lots of time and care to ensure that the end result was a positive one. I think he genuinely cares about the wellbeing of his patients and was always happy to explain things to us and make himself available if the braces ever needed adjustments or repair in between scheduled appointments. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Tosun’s clinic to anyone looking for excellent dental care.
