Ceramic braces give all of the advantages of conventional metal braces without the unsightly appearance of the silver brackets and wires.
This means your orthodontist can control the exact movement of each tooth independently giving the greatest amount of flexibility in the treatment.
With ceramic braces, the ‘teeth clip’, or bracket is made of a high strength ceramic tooth coloured material, the wire is also tooth coloured and covered with a plastic material to ensure the braces are as discreet as possible.
There is no clinical difference between ceramic braces and metal braces, they both use brackets which attach to your teeth and wires which are bent to move your teeth.
The way ceramic braces can be considered better than metal braces is in their appearance, because they are tooth coloured they are far less noticeable and very often people won’t even realise that you have orthodontic braces.
This is a very common question, people not only want to know what they will look like after treatment but also during treatment. The good thing with treatments such as Invisalign (completely clear braces) is that they are virtually undetectable and no one will know you are wearing them.
But what will you look like with conventional braces?
