Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces operate in much the same way as their metal counterparts, however, they have a huge aesthetic advantage. They are made from ‘tooth-coloured’ white, cream or ivory ceramics that blend in and reduce the visual impact of the realignment while it is taking place.

Ceramic braces tend to be tougher than plastic ones and patients often see quicker results. They are more expensive than metal braces but still represent an extremely cost-effective option.

As with any type of orthodontic treatment, patients must take very good care of ceramic braces, as they can break if not cared for properly. Care should also be taken not to stain them; tooth care and oral hygiene must be a top priority. A mouthguard is advised if you plan to participate in contact sports or activities such as cycling, skateboarding or roller-skating while wearing your brace.

Benefits of Ceramic Braces

Aesthetic Appeal: Ceramic braces are less noticeable than traditional metal braces, making them a more discreet option. The brackets are designed to blend with the natural color of teeth, providing a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Effective Teeth Alignment: Ceramic braces are highly effective in correcting a wide range of dental issues, including misalignments, overcrowding, and spacing irregularities. They offer the same level of effectiveness as traditional metal braces.

Durability: Ceramic braces are durable and resistant to staining, ensuring that they maintain their appearance throughout the treatment duration. The material used is strong and can withstand the forces involved in the alignment process.

Comfort: The brackets of ceramic braces are designed to be smooth and comfortable. While there may be an adjustment period, many patients find ceramic braces to be less irritating to the lips and cheeks compared to metal braces.

Customisation: Ceramic braces can be customized to match the individual’s tooth color, providing a personalized touch. This customization adds to the discreet nature of the braces and can be appealing to individuals conscious of their appearance during treatment.

Less Impact on Oral Hygiene: Ceramic braces are easier to clean than traditional metal braces. Their design allows for effective oral hygiene practices, reducing the risk of plaque buildup and associated dental issues during the treatment period.

Versatility: Ceramic braces can be used to address various orthodontic issues, making them a versatile treatment option. They are suitable for both adults and teenagers seeking effective teeth alignment with a more subtle appearance.

Predictable Treatment: Orthodontic professionals can predict and control the movement of teeth effectively with ceramic braces. This predictability allows for a more accurate treatment plan and ensures that patients achieve the desired results within the estimated timeframe.

Reduced Allergen Concerns: Unlike some materials used in traditional braces, ceramic braces are less likely to cause allergic reactions in patients. This makes them a suitable option for individuals with sensitivities to certain metals.

Confidence Boost: Ceramic braces can boost the confidence of individuals undergoing orthodontic treatment, as the discreet appearance reduces self-consciousness associated with wearing visible braces. This can positively impact social interactions and self-esteem.

Ceramic braces are designed to resist staining, but it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent discoloration. Avoiding foods and drinks that can stain teeth, such as coffee, tea, and red wine, can help keep the ceramic brackets looking their best.

Ceramic braces are suitable for most patients, including adults and teenagers. However, they may not be recommended for individuals with severe orthodontic issues or those who require extensive treatment.

Ceramic braces require similar care to metal braces. Patients should brush and floss regularly, paying extra attention to cleaning around the brackets and wires. It’s also essential to attend regular orthodontic appointments for adjustments and monitoring.

Some patients may experience minor irritation from the brackets and wires of ceramic braces, similar to metal braces. Orthodontic wax can be used to alleviate any discomfort, and adjustments can be made by the orthodontist if necessary.

While certain foods should be avoided or limited to prevent damage to the braces, most foods can still be enjoyed with ceramic braces. It’s essential to follow any dietary guidelines provided by your orthodontist to ensure the best results.

What our Patients say?

Dear Dr Shabs. This is just a note to say thank you SO MUCH for everything you’ve done for me and my disasterous teeth! Ever since I smashed my front teeth in freshers week I felt like I’ve been in the best possible hands! However, I’ve just finished a teaching course and am going to go and teach English in Jordan in two weeks time and therefore have had to register somewhere else 🙁 Whenever I’m back living in Manchester again though, I’ll be back. Cheers again, Helen (the one who does Arabic)
