Difference between metal and ceramic braces
Braces are used in orthodontics to straighten misaligned teeth and improve your bite. We offer two options if you need braces – metal braces and ceramic braces.
Metal braces have been used for many decades now, but the modern options are significantly different than the earliest versions. Today, metal braces are made from a very high grade of stainless steel. They slowly move teeth into the right position, with your orthodontist tightening them over time.
Ceramic braces work in the same way as metal braces but they are clear so are less visible.
