Aesthetic Braces at The Specialist Orthodontic Practice in Epping

Ceramic braces are a discreet style of fixed braces that use tooth-coloured ceramic blocks on the front of the teeth instead of metal. Fixed braces have long been a reliable orthodontic treatment, effectively correcting a wide range of dental misalignments. We use the latest technological advancements to ensure optimal results.

What are ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that the brackets are tooth coloured to help make a fixed brace look less noticeable. This type of brace straightens teeth without compromising the way you look during your treatment.

Clear ceramic 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 private patients, however not on the NHS.

Ceramic fixed braces are strong, lightweight, comfortable and fixed to the front of your teeth. You’ll hardly notice they are there. Ask us for more details.

Advantages of ceramic braces

  • Translucent, designed to blend in with your teeth.
  • Far less visible than conventional metal braces.
  • Small and smooth brackets for comfort.
  • Precise and fast tooth movement.

How are ceramic braces 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. We then attach the archwire which is shaped so your teeth will be gradually nudged into line. The archwire will be tooth coloured but in some cases we may need to use silver coloured wire, if required for certain tooth movements.
