Tooth-coloured, Clear or Ceramic Braces
There are braces systems where each component is designed to be inconspicuous to any onlookers.
In this particular system, the brackets are made of a translucent or tooth coloured material which can be from either ceramic or hard plastic. The archwires that are used in this system can be tooth coloured also making this a much less noticeable style of braces than metal braces.

The choice of material used is often dependent on treatment goals and protocols. Your orthodontist will advise as to the best choice for you. If you are looking for a less noticeable brace please mention this at your consultation, so that we can design the treatment objectives to meet with your requirements.
