Aside from the traditional metal braces, our office offers a more esthetic fixed option - Ceramic, or clear, braces. With ceramic braces, you will never have to worry about flashing a "tin grin" every time you smile. Made from porcelain, these brackets have a translucent appearance that definitely gives them an esthetic advantage and makes them a popular choice, especially with our adult patients.
Having the natural beauty of your teeth shining through instead of your braces should make you feel much better about your treatment. Ceramic braces are designed to withstand staining and discoloring and should look as great the day they are placed to the day they are removed.
