Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are clear braces used as an alternative to traditional metal braces. They work like traditional metal braces but are less visible. Ceramic braces are tooth-coloured, which makes them blend with the natural tooth colour to provide an aesthetically-pleasing look. They have a translucent appearance, so you can smile confidently without worrying about your appearance.

Who needs ceramic braces?

Patients with the following dental issue can get a ceramic brace.

Benefits of ceramic braces

  • Ceramic braces do not stain easily with proper care however the elastic band holding the wire against the bracket can discolour between appointments
  • High-quality ceramic braces are strong and don't break or chip
  • Ceramic braces have tooth-coloured or transparent wires which do not affect your smile

Ceramic braces procedure

On your first appointment, the orthodontist will examine your teeth and bite to diagnose your dental problem and fully discuss this with you. 

The orthodontist will bond the ceramic brace to the surface of your teeth and then use the most suitable wire based on your treatment needs. Metal brackets are always fitted on the top and  molars since they aren't visible when you smile or talk.

The fitting process takes about an hour. You will be scheduled for your next appointment, usually after 6-8 weeks. On your next appointment, the orthodontist will tighten or replace the wire. Ensure you attend all your check-ups during ceramic braces treatment.
