Ceramic braces are tooth-colored braces that are used to straighten teeth. They are preferred by many people, especially adults who often want to avoid metal braces. Ceramic braces are much less noticeable than metal braces. In fact, most people do not notice them unless they are up close to a person. Small ceramic pieces are glued to each tooth, and a wire is placed across the top and bottom teeth. These braces are made of a very strong and durable composite material, and they do not stain unless a person eats or drinks many foods that typically stain teeth.
The ceramic braces are much less visible than other kinds of braces. The ceramic braces do not stain, unlike plastic or composite brackets, but the clear elastic ties that are used to attach the wire to the braces do stain from smoking, drinking coffee, tea or other dark liquids, tomato sauce, etc. However, you can always call and come in if the ties stain to have me change them.
