Ceramic braces utilize less noticeable brackets for patients concerned about the appearance of their smile. Ceramic brackets are translucent, so they blend in with your natural tooth color. This means that unlike traditional stainless metal braces, ceramic braces won’t make your smile look “metallic.” In addition, ceramic braces are designed so that they won’t stain or discolor over long periods of time.
