Treatments: Ceramic Braces

Children’s Braces

Ceramic braces work like traditional ‘train track’ braces, but the little square tiles stuck to the surface of the teeth — known as brackets — are made of tooth coloured ceramic rather than stainless steel.

That means they could be a better option than metal if your child is worried about their braces being too obvious.

Ceramic braces work in the exactly the same way as conventional appliances so you can expect the same excellent clinical results, just more discretion — they’re perhaps best suited to older teenagers who have already started turning themselves into serious adults.

Something to be aware of is that in cases where an overlap of top and bottom teeth risks contact between the ceramic and tooth surface, our specialist orthodontist will usually advise against ceramic braces because ceramic is harder than enamel and can cause damage to the teeth.
