Ceramic braces are a cosmetic alternative to the common metal braces. They are made of tooth colour brackets and archwires and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.
Tooth coloured wires are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth through ceramic brackets. These wires are tightened over time, applying gentle pressure to the teeth which encourages them to move into a straighter position. Ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
