Ceramic braces are a great, commonly-used alternative to traditional metal braces. They are made of translucent material and are most prevalent amongst adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. Before electing to get ceramic braces, it is important to take some more information into account.
These can be used in place of metal brackets for a more discreet and subtle appearance. The ceramic brackets are constructed to mimic the color of the tooth so that they only part of the braces that is clearly visible is the arch wire. The bands used to hold the arch wire in place are typically clear or white, but colored bands may also be chosen if desired.
