What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces are a fixed orthodontic structure for correcting misaligned teeth. They consist of three parts:
- Braces (plates) are made of polycrystalline aluminum oxide (ceramic) and are glued to the front surface of the teeth
- A metal arch connects the plates together and applies pressure to the teeth to move them into the correct position
- Rubber ligatures or micro-locks are used to attach the arch to the braces.
The plates have a white color, identical to the color of natural enamel. Therefore, ceramic braces are almost invisible on the teeth.
- Interdental gaps (tremas, diastems)
- Crooked teeth
- Teeth crowding
- Incorrect bite.

Metal vs ceramic
Ceramic braces or aligners?
Ceramic braces are virtually invisible. However, they are not as aesthetically pleasing as transparent aligners.
Aligners are more comfortable and take less time to adjust. Unlike braces, they do not rub against the gums, eliminating chewing discomfort.
Braces make oral hygiene difficult. Aligners can be removed and reapplied before brushing your teeth.
During orthodontic treatment with ceramic braces, it is recommended to avoid a number of foods/meals from your diet. With orthodontic braces, there are no food restrictions because they can be removed before meals.
Ceramic braces require monthly visits to the clinic. The patient is given a set of aligners for a longer period of time, and needs less visits in total..
