Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Clear braces are a cosmetic alternative to metal braces that blend in better with your teeth and are less noticeable. They are a great option for those who want braces but don’t want them to show and also for those who are not candidates for Invisalign but still desire a less visible solution.
Ceramic braces are a less noticeable type of braces used for straightening teeth in adults and teens who are concerned about the cosmetic appearance of their braces. These braces are secured to your teeth and are tightened at regular intervals by the orthodontist just like traditional metal braces. You may experience some soreness after each tightening session. This is a normal result of your teeth being shifted into alignment. The length of the intervals will be determined during an initial appointment with our orthodontist.
