Ceramic braces are made of clear or transparent material which makes them less visible on teeth. Since they are less visible, they are preferred by older teenagers and adult patients who have aesthetic concerns. Ceramic braces are equally effective as the metal braces and are comfortable to wear too. You can also have transparent wires with them in the initial part of your treatment.
Ceramics have physical properties which are different from the metal, hence certain precautions are taken to avoid associated problems due to material properties. Today’s ceramic appliances are very good in esthetics and if used properly work effectively to give a successful orthodontic result.
