DO YOU NEED An orthodontic consult FOR YOU OR YOUR CHILD?



Ceramic braces in Allen, TX

Why choose ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces provide a good clear alternative to metal braces. They are made from tooth colored ceramic material that makes the braces nearly invisible. 

Why choose ceramic braces in Allen, TX? Ceramic braces are very similar to traditional metal braces but the brackets are made of clear or tooth-colored composite that are less noticeable. 

It’s up to you to decide what kind of braces to get. But Invisalign would be a better option if you’re very concerned about aesthetics. Plus, you get the added bonus of easier oral hygiene maintenance with easy removal of your clear aligners when you eat, brush, and floss.

Traditional metal braces are much more cost-effective than ceramic braces and easier to remove once treatment is complete. Therefore if your main concern is cost than metal braces may be your best option.

Should you choose metal or clear braces?

How much do braces cost in Allen?

The cost of metal and clear braces vary due to three main factors:

1. The length of your treatment time.

2. If you need any other appliances.

3. Your insurance benefits.

Many insurances companies will cover part of your out of pocket costs. Orthodontic insurance can cover anywhere from $1000 to $3500 of your total braces costs. Be aware that if your insurance states it covers 80% that does not mean they will pay 80% of your total treatment. The best number to look at on your insurance is the orthodontic lifetime maximum number. 

Metal braces typically cost anywhere from $3000-$6000 depending on severity of your case. Clear braces are typically $500 more expansive than metal braces. 

We offer low monthly payment plans at zero percent interest to work within your budget.

We want our Allen orthodontic patients to be happy with their smile and we work very hard to be within your braces budget. 

Ceramic braces are great for adults or anyone concerned about aesthetics and do not want the hassle of clear aligners. 

If kept clean, they can more discreet than traditional metal braces. They also move the teeth in much the same manner as metal braces.

Ceramic braces have a similar treatment time as traditional metal braces (around 18-24 months)

Do we put braces on kids?

A traditional orthodontic treatment doesn’t normally start until all or most of your child’s permanent teeth emerge. That said, an initial orthodontic consultation is normally recommended around the age of seven so that we can check for early jaw and tooth alignment problems.

If issues are found, we can use Phase 1 Pediatric Orthodontics to address them. Special orthodontic appliances can guide the growth and development of your little one’s teeth so that when they do receive braces, less treatment time will be required.

In other words, having your child’s smile checked for problems now can save you time and money later on.

If you are concerned with your children's teeth or bite come into our Allen, TX location for a free orthodontic consult to evaluate for phase I treatment. 

Traditional metal braces

With all the orthodontic options available today, traditional metal braces remain one of the most reliable, effective options when it comes to correcting severe orthodontic issues.

Braces consist of several metal brackets attached to the teeth and held together by an orthodontic wire. With the wire held in place by elastics, the teeth will be gradually pushed towards a more ideal alignment. Many patients find metal braces to be the most comfortable type of braces.
