Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of composite materials with varying levels of color and transparency. Clear brackets are made of clear ceramic or a polycarbonate (plastic). Sometimes both materials are used to create the bracket. The wires used to connect the brackets are usually made of nickel and titanium. Clear plastic aligners, on the other hand, are made of acrylic - another type of plastic.

Ceramic braces mimic the color of your natural teeth, so they are less noticeable than metal braces. This option appeals to those who wish to hide the fact that they are wearing braces but need traditional braces to accomplish their orthodontic goals.Tooth colored wires are usually used in conjunction with the ceramic braces to provide maximum aesthetics.
