Ceramic braces work in the same way as traditional metal fixed ones. However, they are much more aesthetically pleasing as the brackets are made of a translucent ceramic material which allows the natural colour of your teeth to show through.
Ceramic braces may be used whenever metal versions are appropriate for treatment. They’re strong like metal, come off easily at the end of treatment and you can wear them even if you participate in sports. The clear brackets and bands also make the device less visible. The elastics on the brackets may stain if you regularly drink coffee, tea, red wine or even eat dishes like curry. We recommend that you rinse your mouth regularly.
