What are ceramic braces?
Ceramic braces are the least visible fixed braces that are fitted to the outside of the teeth. They are made from ceramic materials which blend in with the colour of your natural teeth and are less noticeable. Ceramic brackets are renowned to provide effective straightening of your teeth.
What are Clarity ceramic braces?
Clarity braces are produced by 3M, and are the only ceramic brackets with a metal slot which allows the orthodontist to move the teeth as efficiently as conventional braces. With this metal slot, Clarity brackets reduce the frictional force between teeth and eases movement, resulting in a quicker straightening of teeth.
