What Makes Ceramic Braces Different?

As you can probably tell from the name, what differentiates ceramic braces from traditional braces is the type of material they are made of. The brackets will be made of a clear ceramic material that blends in with the teeth, and they will be connected by clear or tooth-colored wires. Thanks to these materials, most people will barely notice your braces. They will, however, notice the beautiful changes in the rest of your smile as your treatment progresses.

How Do Ceramic Braces Compare to Traditional Braces?

Your ceramic braces work the same as traditional braces. The brackets and archwire gradually push the teeth towards their desired position, aided by periodic adjustments. As such, they can make the same kind of corrections and are suitable for a wide variety of orthodontic issues. You will need to be extra diligent about your oral care to ensure that your brackets and wires stay as clean as possible; you should also be careful about consuming dark-colored beverages such as coffee.
