Clear ceramic braces are made of ceramic alloys. Because of their transparency, they also have a great following, especially among adults who are to correct their buckteeth but without shouting to the world, they’re being corrected every time they smile.
In addition to the clear ceramic brackets, there are two types of brace wires or ties that can make them more inconspicuous. The ties are made up of either clear elastic ties or white metal ties. The metal ties provide a stronger bind but tend to lose the white coating over time.
Advantages of Ceramic Braces
The main edge of ceramic braces is their aesthetic and cosmetic appeal. The ceramic brackets do not stain but the clear elastic wires or ties holding the brackets to your teeth stain, especially if you smoke, eat a lot of curry or drink loads of coffee. But these ties are changed every time an adjustment is made, usually, monthly.
