The ceramic brackets means that this device is less visible than conventional braces.
Ceramic braces are braces that are fixed to the teeth. They consist of brackets that can either be made from transparent materials that allow the natural colour of the teeth to shine through, or produced in ceramics in shades that are similar to the natural colour of teeth. They are an effective solution for precisely re-positioning crooked teeth. The ceramic brackets means that this device is less visible than conventional braces, and when combined with clear or natural coloured wires these braces are extremely discreet.
Ceramic fixed braces can straighten up your misaligned teeth without the obvious appearance of traditional, metal braces. These transparent and natural looking braces are produced by many brands, and you may be asked to choose between braces from Mystique, produced by GAC, Clarity and Transcend, created by 3M Unitek. These braces are popular with adults due to appearing less noticeable than metal devices.
Compared to traditional braces, ceramic fixed braces are favoured for their visual appeal. The ceramic fixtures don’t stain, however the wires that attach the ceramic brackets to the teeth can stain and become discoloured. If you smoke, are a heavy coffee drinker or eat foods such as curry, your braces are more at risk of staining, but these ties are swapped whenever the brace brackets are adjusted.
There is evidence that ceramic braces re-position teeth faster than other brace solutions. But these benefits can come with some drawbacks, as they can also be more susceptible to staining if not cared for properly and are more costly than metal alternatives.
A private dentist may charge around £2,000 - £6,000 for ceramic fixed braces.
