Ceramic braces, also known as clear braces or porcelain braces, are an effective type of treatment for patients of all ages who are looking for the stability and reliability of traditional metal braces, with a bit of advanced aesthetic. They're especially desirable for teens and adults due to their clear nature.
Ceramic braces are the same size as metal brackets, and use the same wire and bracket system to adjust teeth. Their ability to blend in with teeth make them nearly invisible at a short distance, and are a great way to get the straight smile you've always wanted.
The material making up the clear or tooth-colored brackets is a bit more sensitive, and do require a patient to be a bit more vigilant when chewing hard or sticky foods, however their cosmetic appeal makes them a desirable choice for adults.
