Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but the brackets of ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth. These braces are commonly used by teenagers and adult patients as they are almost invisible. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits and require increased attention to oral hygiene.
