Coloured Fixed Braces

Clear braces for adults

Straight teeth, less time

Many adults are displeased with how their teeth look. Even so, they are often put off seeking orthodontic help as they think the braces will be unsightly and embarrassing to wear, and take a long time to work. Think again!

At Hacton Dental Care we offer our patients Ceramic Braces which are clear or tooth-colours brackets and wires.

Many people opt for ceramic braces because they’re less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. This can be a huge advantage if you’re considering braces and don’t want to feel self-conscious about wearing them.

Benefits Of Ceramic Braces

The ceramic material used in these braces can be either clear or tooth-colored which makes them less visible than traditional metal braces.

They move teeth faster than clear aligners (Invisalign). Ceramic braces take about 18 to 36 months to straighten your teeth. Popular clear-alignment methods, such as Invisalign, can take a year or longer to work, even if your teeth don’t require much correction. Also, clear-alignment methods don’t work for severe cases of misalignment or malocclusion (a crooked bite).

You can choose your colours. Metal braces only come in one colour: grey (or shiny metallic silver). Ceramic braces are available in nearly any colour imaginable.

They don’t interfere with imaging tests. Metal braces can disrupt signals in imaging tests. Ceramic braces produce much less signal interference.

Am I A Good Candidate For Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are recommended if all of your adult teeth have come in and you’ve mostly stopped growing. This ensures a quick correction and a lower chance of brackets breaking due to the strain of tooth movement.

Ceramic braces are a good choice if you want your braces to be subtle. Because they’re usually tooth-coloured or white, making them less noticeable. This makes them ideal for straightening your teeth and don’t want to draw attention to them.

Do Ceramic Braces Stain

Ceramic brackets don’t stain easily, but the elastic ties used to hold them to the wire can. Here are some tips to avoid staining your ceramic bracket ties:

Brush and floss after every meal. This helps remove food residue that might cause staining.

Avoid foods and drinks that leave stains or discoloration. Tomatoes, wine, coffee, tea, soda, or condiments like ketchup and mustard are known offenders for staining bracket ties and

Don’t use whitening toothpaste. Whitening agents can cause your exposed tooth surface to become whiter than the tooth underneath.

See your orthodontist regularly., your orthodontist can replace stained ceramic brackets or ties when required..
