Ceramic braces provide a discrete alternative to metal braces and are made of materials that blend with the natural colour of your teeth. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adults patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts.
Not every patient is a candidate for ceramic braces and your suitability will be determined at the time of your initial consult.
If invisibility is your reason for choosing ceramic braces, Invisalign is another potential alternative for you.
