Clear braces are made of a ceramic material and are either clear or a colour that closely mimics the shade of the tooth. They are every bit as good as metal braces although somewhat more fragile (usually of little consequence) and aesthetically more superior. Many patients are concerned that the ceramic braces will stain during treatment and we assure them that this is not the case! The small clear rubber ring that holds the wire onto the clear brace can discolour with certain foods but will be changed at every appointment with your Orthodontist.
At Brisbane Orthodontics, we do not charge extra for clear braces on top teeth.
