What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces look the same as metal braces, using a brackets, metal wires and bands, but the big difference is that ceramic braces use a tooth-coloured porcelain material for the brackets, instead of stainless steel. Ceramic braces are a popular choice as they can be almost clear in appearance, unlike traditional braces.
Why get ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces are particularly popular among adults who are looking for a less obvious treatment option than traditional braces. The use of clear or tooth-coloured products in the appliances makes them subtle and effective.
Ceramic braces can be used to complete the same treatments as traditional braces, although they can be more expensive and the treatment time may take a little longer.
