Tooth Coloured Braces

Clear and Ceramic Braces (Tooth coloured braces) are a low-visibility alternative to traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces have minimal visual impact and much less noticeable than metal braces, even up close. Clear and Ceramic braces are largely responsible for the increase in popularity of orthodontic treatment in teens and adults.

Advantages of Clear and Ceramic Braces (Tooth Coloured Braces)

Low-visibility - This fixed brace system is far less obvious than metal braces. Even the wires can be coated to be tooth-coloured rather than just metal. Efficient - Treatment times are just as quick as any other orthodontic option available. There is no compromise to treatment times with this option. Value - This is the most cost-effective fixed brace appliance available.
Range of possible treatment Ceramic braces can be used to treat all orthodontic problems from straightforward to very complex.
Treatment Time Treatment times are low, with typical cases taking around 6-12 months but this does vary depending on the degree of complexity and amount of crowding. A more accurate estimation of treatment length is provided at the consultation.
How it works Clear or Ceramic brackets are attached to the teeth. Flexible archwires are fitted into the brackets and slowly spread to a curved archform. This 'elastic recoil' gently pushes the teeth into proper alignment. The archwires are changed when needed throughout treatment. Additional forces can be created with clear elastic bands when required.
