Great results, discreetly
If the thought of smiling with a mouth full of braces is putting you off orthodontic treatment, clear ceramic braces could be the treatment method for you. These braces are just as effective as traditional metal braces but are less noticeable due to their clear, ceramic brackets.
What are clear ceramic braces?
Clear ceramic braces are a discreet orthodontic treatment option which work the same way as traditional metal braces do. Using the bracket and archwire system, your teeth are guided into their desired position by gentle pressure. The difference between these two types of braces is that clear ceramic braces aren’t as conspicuous. This is because the brackets attached to your teeth are made from a clear ceramic material which blends in with the natural colour of your teeth.
Are clear ceramic braces suitable for me?
Clear ceramic braces are a popular choice among our adult patients because it is not immediately obvious that you are wearing braces. This is particularly beneficial for many patients in client-facing jobs. You can smile without feeling self-conscious knowing the brackets don’t stand out on your teeth.

Ceramic braces FAQs
Are braces expensive?
Orthodontic treatment is a significant investment but a worthwhile one because the results are for life. At Mysmile Orthodontics, we have payment plans in place to help ensure orthodontic treatment is affordable for all our patients.
Is it hard to clean my teeth while wearing braces?
No, it is not hard, but you just have to be a bit more careful. Although the brackets are secured to the front surface of your teeth, they can still move so you need to brush gently and thoroughly to ensure nothing gets stuck in them or your archwires.
Do I have to visit my dentist while wearing braces?
Yes, this is very important. Although you will have regular check-ups with your orthodontist to ensure your treatment is progressing as it should, you need to see your dentist as part of your overall oral hygiene routine.
