Ceramic Braces

As more adults turn to orthodontics to perfect their smiles, ceramic braces have become more popular.

Ceramic braces are orthodontic treatment systems that offer the same effective results of traditional braces but are much less noticeable.

The brackets are made of high-grade ceramic materials that match the colour of your natural teeth, offering a discreet tooth realignment solution.

Just like traditional metal braces, ceramic braces use brackets and wires to gently pull crooked teeth into place and fix issues with your bite. Your dentist will first bond the brackets to the front surface of your teeth with a special adhesive.

They will then connect the brackets with wires and, over time, tighten the wires to exert mild pressure on the teeth, encouraging them to move into a more desirable position.

Ceramic braces are permanently installed in your mouth by a dental professional. Because of the material, they are smooth and feel comfortable in the mouth.

Treatment time for patients varies based on the complexity of the case. Once the treatment is complete, your dentist will remove the brackets from your teeth and provide you with a retainer to wear. A retainer prevents your teeth relapsing to their original position and is vitally important in the months after treatment.
