Tooth-coloured braces

Ceramic braces are an excellent option for those seeking straight teeth, a beautiful smile and no impact on your lifestyle. The best news? We have them right here at Scunthorpe Orthodontics.

What are ceramic braces?

For many of our patients who want both the effectiveness of traditional braces but a more discreet look, ceramic braces are the perfect treatment option. The braces still use brackets, archwires and elastic bands to move your teeth into position, but the brackets blend in with the colour of your teeth so aren’t as noticeable.

How do ceramic braces work?

Small ceramic brackets are fitted to the front surface of your teeth and are connected with a thin archwire. Small elastic bands are then placed over the brackets to apply gentle pressure to your teeth. This pressure encourages your teeth to straighten over the course of your treatment.

Who are ceramic braces for?

Ceramic braces are an ideal treatment option for teenagers and adults alike. Because the ceramic brackets blend in with the colour of your teeth, they're great for those who don’t want to feel self-conscious about having orthodontic treatment. With this more discreet option, you can smile, laugh, go on first dates or attend important business meetings, knowing it is not immediately obvious that you are wearing braces.

How to care for ceramic braces

No matter what appliance you are wearing during your orthodontic treatment, it is important you keep your teeth healthy. We’ll show you how to clean your teeth while wearing braces. It is your responsibility to clean your teeth at least twice a day, paying particular attention to the area above and below the brackets. This will help to avoid any discolouration of your ceramic braces.
