Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend into teeth. These braces are translucent. You have to be very close to someone to be able to see them.
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but they use clear or tooth-colored brackets rather than gray or metallic silver brackets and wires. Many people opt for ceramic braces because they’re less noticeable on your teeth than metal braces. This can be a huge advantage if you’re considering braces and don’t want to feel self-conscious about wearing them. But ceramic braces also come with some downsides.
