Ceramic braces are clear brackets that are designed to blend in with your teeth. These clear braces are made of a translucent (clear) material. The main advantage with ceramic braces is their cosmetic appeal. Since the colour of the braces mimic the natural colour of the teeth, they’re less noticeable, so much so that sometimes people may not even notice that you’re wearing braces.
Today’s orthodontic appliances are very different to those even used a decade ago. Recent advances in scientific knowledge and orthodontic technology have greatly enhanced the aesthetics, precision and comfort of orthodontic appliances. Old style chunky metal braces and bands are no longer a necessity. Ceramic “Tooth Coloured” Braces, and Invisalign removable tooth aligners are the cosmetic orthodontic appliance options for adults. All of these appliances are very discrete and well accepted by adults.
