Ceramic Braces

The Midlands Specialist Orthodontists

Fixed standard braces are an excellent
treatment option; they can be used to
facilitate a wide range of tooth movements
and are safe and predictable.

The principal drawback to metal appliances, however, is their conspicuousness. Ceramic braces offer a way to substantially soften this look while still having brackets mounted to the front of your teeth (for brackets mounted to the back of your teeth see fixed lingual braces).

What To Expect

As with fixed standard braces and fixed lingual braces,
try to avoid hard foods, chewy foods and fizzy drinks during
treatment. Ceramic brackets are made of much harder
material than teeth and you will need to take care not to
bite on them to avoid the risk of damage to your teeth.
Dark, staining foods and drinks can also discolour the elastic
ligatures and make the appliance more noticeable — so if you
are going to eat a curry, make it the night before you come in
to have your braces tightened so we can change the ligatures.
