Ceramic Braces

Ceramic brackets are made of clear materials and are therefore less visable on your teeth compared to metal braces. The o-rings (tiny rubber bands) that hold the arch wire on to the brackets are often white or clear. People tend to choose ceramic brackets for cosmetic reasons because they “blend in” with their teeth. These brackets are slightly larger and are more brittle than the metal brackets.  For this reason they are ususally only only used on the upper front teeth (front six), as they are likely to be damaged by the biting action of the other teeth.  Ceramic braces are not recommended for people who need extensive treatment.
