Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear Braces - Manly Orthodontics Ceramic braces, also referred to as clear braces, are the same shape and size as metal braces, but they blend in with the colour of the teeth. This makes them less visible and gives an improved appearance compared to metal braces. Ceramic braces are harder than enamel which can cause the enamel to wear away when the teeth bite or rub against these brackets. For this reason, your orthodontist may recommend that you have metal braces on your lower teeth with clear braces on the more visible top teeth.
