Although many patients seek orthodontic treatment purely for cosmetic reasons, there are important health benefits to consider as well.
When misaligned teeth cannot form a proper bite, it can result in accelerated wear on the chewing surface. Crooked teeth are also harder to clean, increasing the chances of tooth decay and gum disease.
When teeth are repositioned with orthodontics, they not only become more beautiful, they signal optimal health.
In recent years, ceramics have become the material of choice for use in dentistry, as its appearance is virtually indistinguishable from natural tooth enamel. Furthermore, modern ceramics exhibit excellent strength, reflecting advances in the material science.
Aside from replacing unsightly metal crowns, ceramics have other important benefits. They tend to be gentle on the gums, show good biocompatibility, and resist plaque and staining.
