Ceramic Braces

What are Ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are made of clear, ceramic brackets that adhere to the front of your teeth. They look just like regular metal braces, except they’re clear and the brackets are slightly smaller than metal brackets. The arch-wire that connects each bracket and actually does the work to shape the teeth is usually metal. Still the braces are nearly invisible, especially in photos.

Do Ceramic braces take longer than metal braces?

They don’t take longer than metal brackets! Clear braces are just as strong as silver metal braces, so your orthodontist can put as much pressure on your ceramic braces as they would on metal braces. Most patients wear braces for 1–2 years, whether they’re white, clear, or silver. The only variable factor here is the cost of the treatment.

Do Ceramic braces stain?

The brackets themselves probably won’t get stained. The clear bands that connect the arch-wire to the brackets are more likely to get stained. Those get replaced every few weeks anyway, so if they do get stained then you can just get them replaced at your next appointment.

Dark and coloured foods and drinks will stain clear bands. Try to avoid foods like dark soda, coffee, curry, and spaghetti sauce. These will stain your bands. Every time you eat, rinse with water or mouthwash and your brackets themselves shouldn’t stain.
