Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear braces are similar to traditional metal braces, except the brackets, and in many cases the wires, are made from a clear ceramic material making them much less visible. Ceramic braces are often used on older teenagers and adults who are concerned about the aesthetics of having a mouth full of metal braces. The brackets are made from a clear or tooth colored ceramic alloy and are typically a little larger than a metal bracket. Clear ceramic braces also require more attention during brushing and flossing.
