- Sapphire or ceramic braces or aesthetic orthodontics: the difference they have with respect to metal brackets is that they are more aesthetic. Sapphire or ceramic material makes the device less visible.
- Lingual brackets: are those that are placed on the inside of the tooth, so aesthetically no person appreciates a simple view that the patient wears an orthodontic appliance in place.
- Self-ligating brackets: the difference it has in relation to metal brackets is the way it holds the archwire to the bracket.

Types of aesthetic dental treatments that we perform in Mijas
As we have mentioned previously, dental aesthetics is another treatment that we carry out in our clinic in Mijas, and this is based on the needs of each patient, since each mouth and smile is unique, and the treatment that is appropriate for one person, perhaps not the most recommended for another.
That said, cosmetic dental treatments consist mainly of the application of composite veneers or porcelain veneers or the performance of dental whitening, and in view of this … how do I know which one is recommended for me? Very easy, our orthodontists will advise you after the study, and will indicate the best solution.
As a summary, we can say that dental veneers are used when after having all the teeth aligned, between them there is no harmony in size and similarity, before which, the patient is advised and discussed that the best solution is veneers. On the other hand, whitening is a dental aesthetic treatment that will provide greater brightness and make the teeth look whiter, it is done when the patient wants to improve their smile and all their teeth are correctly aligned and there is great harmony in them .
