Clear ceramic braces
Orthodontic treatment that won’t impact on your appearance
Clear ceramic braces are ideal for patients who are not suitable for Invisalign® or WIN appliances but still wish to look good during treatment.
What are clear ceramic braces?
The traditional method of orthodontic treatment, which uses brackets and archwires to move teeth into position, is still in use today – and for good reason. It gets results. However, orthodontic technology has continued to advance and now provides patients with more discreet options. Clear ceramic braces are one of them.
Made of clear ceramic blocks and a thin metal wire, ceramic braces are fitted to the front surface of your teeth and offer a perfect compromise between metal braces and lingual appliances.
How do ceramic braces work?
Ceramic braces work just like traditional metal braces do. It is important to be aware that this method of orthodontic treatment can be more expensive because of the material used. The ceramic brackets are also more fragile and treatment time can be longer, but the results are worth waiting for.
Clear ceramic braces for the image conscious patient
The thought of having a mouth full of conspicuous metal can quite rightly put people off having orthodontic treatment. For teenagers, it’s the last thing they want during those ‘self-conscious years’ and for adults, it can feel a bit embarrassing needing orthodontic treatment ‘at that age’.
Clear ceramic braces, which blend in with the natural colour of your teeth, have a number of benefits for these groups of patients, such as:
- Tooth coloured material makes them a very discreet treatment option
- More aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal braces
- Material won’t stain over time so they’ll remain discreet throughout the duration of your treatment
- Based on the traditional method which means they’re effective
- Comfortable to wear and less irritation to the gums than traditional metal braces.
