What Are Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are made using clear, ceramic brackets which are fixed to the front of the teeth. They look similar to metal braces, except the brackets are smaller and made of tooth coloured material.
Do Ceramic Braces Stain?
The brackets themselves will not stain. However, the clear bands used to connect the archwire to the brackets can become stained by food or drink. These bands are usually replaced every few weeks, so if they do become stained, you can simply ask for them to be changed at your next appointment.

It is always best to book a consultation before going ahead with your treatment.
