Ceramic braces serve the same purpose as traditional metal braces, are the same size and shape. However, instead of metal brackets and wires, they feature clear brackets that blend in better with teeth. Some even have tooth-colored wires as well.
Instead of metal brackets and wires, ceramic braces are made from composite materials. These composite brackets also come in varying shades to ideally match your natural teeth.
If you’re an adult and need braces, ceramic braces are an excellent option. Cosmetically, most adults prefer not to have noticeable, metal brackets. With ceramic braces, you can enjoy all the benefits of effective teeth straightening and not feel self-conscious about having metal brackets and wires.
