About Ceramic Braces

Picture traditional braces, with ceramic brackets that blend in with your teeth. That’s exactly what our clear braces look like.

Ceramic braces are clear, tooth-colored braces that come in colored braces, esthetic braces, or even porcelain braces. They’re the same shape and size as traditional braces, but far less noticeable when paired with clear, white, or tooth-colored wires and elastic ties.

They function the same way as traditional metal braces and Dr. Clauss can still provide the accurate and efficient treatment of conventional braces but without the metal brackets.

Great for Adults

Ceramic braces are popular with adults and some teens. Although they’re less noticeable, ceramic braces can be less durable than metal braces.

Ceramic brackets are perfect for someone who does not want their braces to stand out but does not want the added responsibility that comes with clear aligners.

Although you don’t need to worry about the brackets themselves staining, the elastic ties can become discolored through habits like smoking or drinking black coffee or wine regularly.
