Fixed braces are an excellent way to straighten teeth and ceramic braces are a discreet alternative to traditional metal braces. Also referred to as clear braces, these braces offer patients the same reliability as metal braces, but with a more pleasing look.

Clear ceramic braces are an excellent option for patients of all ages. It’s not just adults looking for discreet ways to straighten their teeth. Adolescents and teens love ceramic braces too.

These braces use ceramic brackets instead of metal ones. The brackets are a similar colour to your natural teeth, so they blend naturally with your smile. The brackets are virtually invisible, strong, effective and comfortable to wear.

Like a set of metal braces, the brackets are bonded to the front surface of the teeth with a special adhesive and connected by a metal wire. These wires are also available in lighter colours to blend in with your teeth, for optimal discretion. Once every few weeks, the wire is adjusted or replaced in order to pull the teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing position.

Treatment time is typically 18-24 months depending on your specific orthodontic needs.

Once the treatment has achieved the desired results, the brackets are removed, and the patient must wear a removable or bonded retainer to prevent the teeth from relapsing to their former position.
