When you think of ceramic, you probably picture plates and bowls, or even bathroom tiles. Orthodontic ceramic braces may not immediately come to mind. But, did you know ceramic has been used in dentistry for decades to make realistic veneers, crowns and bridges? More recently, it’s been used to create tooth coloured brace brackets.
Ceramic braces are almost identical to traditional metal braces, but with one critical difference: the brackets are made from clear or tooth-coloured ceramic.
Ceramic braces are often referred to as ‘clear braces’ or ‘clear fixed braces’. At Orthodontic Gallery, we offer a choice of clear braces, including Damon Clear. Their discreet brackets are also stain-resistant, so they should stay ‘incognito’ throughout your treatment.
