Ceramic braces (clear braces) give you more reasons to smile.
Imagine no more hiding behind closed-lip smiles because you are wearing braces. The translucent ceramic material blends with the colour of your teeth and will resist staining or discolouration throughout your treatment. And with its small, low profile design, ceramic braces are virtually unnoticeable, making them a perfect orthodontic solution for adults and children.
Can I have clear braces on my top and bottom rows of teeth?
The answer will depend on your ‘bite’. If your top teeth won’t rub on the brackets fixed to your bottom row of teeth, then you will be able to have ceramic braces on both rows. Because of the high tensile strength of the ceramic material, far greater than metal braces, if the upper teeth contact the lower ceramic brackets then the potential for wear of these teeth is high.
Which orthodontic brackets are the most accurate?
The accuracy of braces has nothing to do with the type of brackets used and everything to do with the wire that is inserted across the brackets. The bends in the wire, and the way the wire changes during treatment, are what move the teeth.
Are clear braces more expensive?
At Embrace, we do not charge you any extra. So you are free to choose between metal and ceramic clear brackets without it changing the price.
Can I still get colours on my clear braces?
Even though the brackets are clear, you can still enjoy coloured bands to go around the brackets, just like with the metal braces. This way you have the choice to make your braces visible with fun colours or for the times you’d like your braces to be less noticeable you can just choose the clear bands.
