Whilst traditional metal braces are the most common form of orthodontic treatment used in adults and children, they are quite noticeable and some would prefer a much more discreet option.

Ceramic braces are an incredibly viable alternative to traditional metallic braces, working in the same way but are coated and made with a tooth coloured material which makes them significantly less visible.

Much like traditional metal braces, they have the unique ability to straighten and align teeth in order to improve function, appearance and maintain oral health. Ceramic braces function similarly to metallic braces through the use of unique tooth coloured attachments to deliver gentle forces to move the teeth into the correct position.

Ceramic braces can also be used in collaborative treatment to create more space in a gap to enable placement of dental bridges or even implants. Treatment length will vary depending on the complexity of the treatment and the tooth movement required.

Firstly, ceramic tooth coloured brackets are carefully positioned and attached to the teeth using a special form of dental cement by the orthodontic specialist. Following this, aesthetic coated wires made from either stainless steel or titanium which fit into the brackets are then attached using specialised elastic rubber band ties, which are responsible for the application of gentle forces to move the teeth into the desired position.

On occasion, larger elastic bands are also required for the more complex movement of teeth. Whilst they are similar to traditional metal braces in that they are attached to the front of the teeth, they are significantly less visible than the traditional metal wire systems. This way you will soon forget that you are wearing braces and begin to smile with increased confidence whilst your teeth are becoming straighter.

Treatment time is very much similar to traditional metal braces.
