Braces Treatment Villa Park and Westmont

Frequently Asked Questions
+ What are dental braces?

+ What are clear braces?
Westmont clear braces are similar to traditional braces. They are cemented with brackets, wires, and rubber bands, but they are tooth-colored. The tooth-colored braces help to straighten teeth but allow a more discrete look to them. They are a little more pricey compared to traditional braces.
+ What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces in Westmont are the same as clear braces. Ceramic is the technical term for clear braces, and they are considered clear because they are made from tooth-colored materials. They are an ideal choice for teens and adults who are looking for straight teeth without the obvious appearance of metal braces.
