Our Jamaica braces doctor has many different treatment approaches that can straighten your teeth and bring about a beautiful smile. Dr. Jacklyn Fisher and her staff understand that the decision to straighten your bite and teeth or those of your child is a complex one that included many physical, financial and emotional factors. Our philosophy is to carefully explain all the aspects of the treatment options available for your particular needs, use the latest digital imaging to aid you and answer all your questions so you can make an educated decision about your treatment. Our entire staff is dedicated to offered high quality, compassionate treatment in a stress-free environment.
Our Jamaica braces doctor uses a wide variety of the latest technologies and procedures to straighten your smile. There have been great strides made in orthodontic techniques and appliances over the past decade. Our doctor will apply those that suit your case. Metal braces are still the most commonly used orthodontic treatment. These traditional braces allow three-dimensional movement of the teeth into their proper position and articulation. These braces use brackets on the front of the teeth with wires strung between them that exert pressure on the teeth. Many of our younger and teenage patients prefer to add colors onto the wires with the elastics that tie the wires. Similar to metal braces are lingual braces, which are attached to the back of the teeth instead of the front so they are not seen. Unfortunately, since lingual braces go behind the teeth they are much harder to work on than front-facing braces and, therefore, are more expensive.
Our Jamaica braces doctor also uses clear braces. These braces are much less visible than metal braces, so many of our patients prefer them. These brackets are made from a porcelain material that can be made to match the color of the patient’s teeth or clear. Clear plastic arch wires are used to connect the brackets. Clear braces show off the color in the elastic better and can be used without color, or ”invisible”. Please make an appointment so that our doctor can do an evaluative consultation to see if orthodontics can help you to enjoy the perfect teeth and smile.
Richmond Hill Ceramic Braces
Seeking a ceramic braces provider for your child? Look no further than Lefferts Braces, a proud provider of high-quality Richmond Hill ceramic braces that can straighten smiles and brighten days.
At Lefferts Braces, we’re happy to provide Richmond Hill ceramic braces to the greater Richmond Hill community. We perform Phase 1 and 2 orthodontics, emergency care, and temporomandibular joint therapy, among many other helpful orthodontic services. We can also fix orthodontic appliances and provide custom mouth guards, retainers, and ceramic braces. We’re happy to provide our community with both pediatric and adult orthodontics, making ceramic braces a possibility for every member of the family. For those of you unfamiliar with ceramic braces as an orthodontic solution, ceramic braces are similar to metal braces but have tooth-colored or clear brackets that camouflage the braces with the wearer’s teeth much more than traditional braces. Some ceramic braces even involve tooth-colored wires, allowing them to blend in with the wearer’s teeth all the more. Richmond Hill ceramic braces are a great choice for patients who are interested in straightening their teeth but would prefer to do so discretely. They’re a particularly great solution when such patients don’t qualify for Invisalign. According to some, ceramic braces also are less painful when tightened because they are less likely to irritate the wearer’s gums. Finally, ceramic braces are also a good option because of their strength. They’re almost guaranteed not to chip or break unless they undergo major abuse. Ask your orthodontics expert whether you would be a good candidate for ceramic braces.
If you or your child is curious about whether Richmond Hill ceramic braces are right for them, don’t hesitate to call us at the office of Lefferts Braces and ask to learn more about whether you might be a good candidate for this amazing orthodontic revolution. We’re dedicated to straightening your smile!
Braces in Richmond Hill
It’s great to have choices, isn’t it? At Lefferts Braces, you are not confined to just the traditional option of metal braces. We have three great possibilities for you, including metal, but also two that are designated as being clear, so that it is less obvious that you have braces on, or even impossible for someone else to notice.
Our braces in Richmond Hill are designed first and foremost to give you the straightest and most attractive smile possible. When your teeth are properly aligned, it also means that you will not experience discomfort from crooked teeth, nor will you have difficulties flossing, which if that occurs means you will be more prone to tooth decay and gum disease. Metal has been in use virtually since orthodontics began. And in some cases, they still may be the best way to go. Today’s metal braces are more lightweight and even stylish. Or you can choose ceramic. Our braces in Richmond Hill are constructed similarly regardless if they are metal or ceramic. The biggest plus is that because ceramic is very close to the color of your teeth, it blends in. Where there is a major difference, however, is when you get Invisalign. These clear braces are made of transparent plastic. They are nearly undetectable to anyone looking at you. They are more comfortable than other types of braces, and they are removable. They stay in most of the time, working hard to reposition your teeth, but take them out to eat, brush, and floss. Avoid the food restrictions of metal and ceramic braces; enjoy the advantages of more efficient oral hygiene. And all the while, you’re getting optimal orthodontic care.
All you need to do is contact our office and we will schedule a time for you to come in for a consultation and examination regarding our braces in Richmond Hill. No matter which one you go with, you can’t go wrong.
