Sapphire braces are classic designs that are almost invisible on the teeth. The color of the braces is as close as possible to the color of the tooth enamel, which avoids the psychological discomfort that those who wear conventional designs have to face. Sapphire braces with a white arch are almost invisible on snow-white teeth, but stand out against the background of tooth enamel with a yellow tint. In the latter case, we recommend giving preference to ceramic braces.
Sapphire braces are orthodontic designs based on artificially created (grown) crystals that are not jewelry, and their name is, by and large, a common marketing ploy. But, unlike conventional ceramic braces, sapphire braces have not a poly-, but a single-crystal structure. This makes them transparent and glare, which can serve as an additional decoration for your smile.
As we said above, braces made of artificial sapphire will look spectacular only on white teeth – enamel with yellowish and other shades will contrast with them. In addition, sapphire braces are more fragile and more expensive than ceramic. They are not suitable for the correction of serious defects, as significant friction between the grooves and the arch makes the treatment quite long. According to the degree of pressure exerted on the teeth, sapphire systems are only in third place after metal and ceramic.
Important advantages of sapphire constructions are atraumaticity and hypoallergenicity. They have streamlined shapes, thanks to which the process of adaptation to braces is faster.
So, why do our patients prefer artificial sapphire products:
Braces can be used by almost everyone and are suitable for the fastest possible correction of defects. These self-ligating systems self-adjust while wearing, which reduces the duration of visits to the dentist and speeds up the treatment process.
During the first visit to the orthodontist, an oral examination and consultation is carried out. The examination will help identify problems with the teeth or soft tissues. Installation of braces is possible only on absolutely healthy teeth, therefore, if necessary, we perform treatment and only after that we install the structure.
Braces can be installed not on all teeth, but only on the front ones, and for the lateral ones, ordinary metal structures are suitable. This will reduce the cost of treatment. At the second stage, we will draw up a detailed treatment plan, for which we need to take a panoramic image of the teeth, an X-ray of the skull, a full-face photo of the patient and a profile.
Braces are installed using special glue. Each element of the system is fixed on a separate tooth, after which an arc is inserted into the grooves, which puts pressure on the teeth in the direction we need. The installation process takes about 2 hours.
The process of treating teeth growth defects consists of three stages:
During treatment, regular examinations of the oral cavity are carried out by a specialist (once every 1-2 months). To avoid problems, you should follow the doctor’s recommendations, which are to follow the diet (sapphire braces are quite fragile, therefore, solid foods should be excluded from the diet), as well as oral hygiene (for care, you should use a special brush and brush your teeth after each meal) … After the end of treatment, the system is removed using a special dental instrument.
Sapphire systems are suitable for adults and children, do not darken over time, and can be used to correct common defects and atypical anomalies. These are aesthetic braces that are effective and allow you not only to avoid psychological discomfort, but also to become an element that allows you to stand out and be original.
