Clear Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces give you a lot to smile about. With smooth, sculptured and translucent ceramic material, these braces offer comfort and help make your brace less noticeable. We offer these low-visibility braces in Slough, Berkshire.
What are ceramic braces?
These braces are fixed to the front surfaces of your teeth and positioned to gain optimal movement creating a long lasting, confident smile. The brackets are made from clear or tooth-coloured ceramic material with similar coloured wires and bands, which makes them less noticeable than traditional metal braces.
Clear braces are a popular choice for teens who may feel self-conscious about metal braces and adults who want their braces to be less noticeable during treatment.
This treatment is available for independent and private patients, however not on the NHS. Ask us for more details.
Advantages of ceramic braces
- Translucent, designed to blend in with your teeth.
- Small and smooth for your comfort.
- Smile all you want, there’s no staining.
How are they fitted?
Each individual bracket is placed directly onto the tooth. The cement is then set by an ultra-violet light to keep the brackets in place. The initial wire is a soft and flexible nickel titanium wire and is tied to the brackets with colourless elastics or stainless steel ligatures.
