What are Ceramic Braces?

Ceramic braces are a type of orthodontic appliance that uses clear or tooth-coloured brackets and wires to straighten teeth. They work similarly to traditional metal braces but offer a more aesthetic treatment option.

Advantages of Ceramic Braces

Opting for ceramic braces provides numerous advantages for individuals seeking a more discreet orthodontic treatment. Some key benefits include:

  • Enhanced aesthetics with tooth-coloured brackets that blend seamlessly with natural teeth

  • Effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded or misaligned teeth

  • Durable and resistant to staining, maintaining their appearance throughout the treatment process

  • Smoother and more comfortable brackets compared to metal braces, reducing the likelihood of irritation

  • Efficient and reliable results, providing a straighter and more aligned smile

Why Chelsea trusts us with their SMILE

Discreet and Aesthetic Treatment

One of the standout features of ceramic braces is their ability to offer a discreet and aesthetic treatment option. The clear or tooth-coloured brackets blend with the natural colour of your teeth, making them less noticeable compared to traditional metal braces. This allows you to undergo orthodontic treatment with confidence and without feeling self-conscious about your appearance.

How Ceramic Braces Work

Ceramic braces work similarly to traditional braces by gradually applying gentle pressure to guide your teeth into their desired positions. The brackets are attached to the front surfaces of your teeth, and the archwires are threaded through them. As the treatment progresses, the wires are adjusted to ensure optimal tooth movement.

Candidacy for Ceramic Braces

Determining candidacy for ceramic braces requires a comprehensive evaluation by our orthodontic specialists. Factors considered include:

  • Orthodontic concerns that can be effectively addressed with ceramic braces

  • Commitment to oral hygiene and proper care of the braces

  • Personal preferences for a more discreet treatment option

  • Evaluation of dental health and the absence of severe bite or jaw-related issues

“I underwent treatment with Dr Sarah Sadek, who in my opinion is the best in the field.  Choosing the right professional who could handle it properly was utterly crucial. I’m delighted to say Sarah was absolutely fantastic – caring, genuine and considerate throughout the whole process.”

“Dr Sadek was brilliant each time I visited and I cannot fault her. She knew the result I wanted to achieve and knew how to engineer my teeth into the right positions.  The process enjoyable and relaxing each visit.”

“I’m so excited with the results of my treatment. My friends were all waiting to see how it turned out and, now that they’ve seen my results, some are even rushing to sign up for similar treatment with Dr Sarah themselves.

I love the look of my teeth and as cheesy as it may sound, I now smile all the time!”


Ceramic braces are a popular choice for many individuals; however, they may not be suitable for severe orthodontic cases. A consultation with our orthodontic specialists will determine the most appropriate treatment option for you.

While ceramic braces do require some additional care compared to traditional braces, the maintenance routine is straightforward. Regular brushing, flossing, and avoiding certain foods will help keep your braces clean and functioning optimally.

Yes, you can engage in sports and play musical instruments while wearing ceramic braces. However, it is advisable to use a mouthguard during contact sports to protect your braces and teeth.


Initially, you may experience a slight adjustment period where your speech may be affected. However, with time, your tongue and mouth muscles will adapt, and any speech difficulties will diminish.


The duration of treatment with ceramic braces varies depending on the complexity of your case. Our orthodontic specialists will provide you with an estimated timeframe during your initial consultation.
