Ceramic braces are physically the same structure as metal braces however, the brackets are white to match the colour of your teeth.
They are a little more expensive but white braces blend with the colour of your teeth and make it look less obvious that you are wearing them. Ceramic braces look just like normal teeth and are completely unnoticeable from a distance.
An initial examination is required to see if you qualify for these clear ceramic braces, the shape of your jawline being a determining factor. While ceramic braces may not be suitable for certain misalignment cases or the complex bite problems ceramic braces can be used to treat overbite problems, crowded and crooked teeth.
Because they are not as strong as metal braces, clear braces require a longer treatment time, since we may need to apply a slower, more gradual force to ensure the strength capabilities of the clear brackets are not overtaxed. Inside braces also can take more time to work effectively.
