Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. Some even use tooth-colored wires to be even less noticeable.
Pros : Less noticeable than metal braces; move teeth much faster than clear plastic aligners (Invisalign)
Cons : More expensive than metal braces; Brackets can stain easily if patients don't care for them well
Ceramic braces are well-suited for many patients without severe misalignments. Your orthodontist will let you know if you're a good candidate for these braces after they examine your teeth. They'll also let you know if your treatment time will be extended by choosing these braces.
