Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces)

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic vs metal

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. Ceramic braces are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.

Ceramic brackets can be used in place of metal brackets for a more discreet appearance. Ceramic brackets are constructed to mimic the color of the tooth so the only part of the braces that is clearly visible is the arch wire. The bands used to hold the arch wire in place are usually clear or white, but colored bands can also be chosen. Ceramic brackets generally cost more than standard metal brackets.

Clear Braces With Colored Bands are an excellent option for patients looking for a creative and colorful look. They look great and will improve your smile in no time.

Traditional braces, typically made of metal, are durable and effective, while ceramic braces, with their tooth-colored brackets, offer a more discreet look.
