Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than traditional metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. You can customise the colours of the pieces of this treatment to suit your tooth colour, making them even less noticeable. This particular option While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth. Being more fragile, they’re usually chosen by patients who believe themselves or their teenage children are gentle and responsible enough to ensure they are looked after appropriately.
