Ceramic braces, or clear braces as they’re widely known, are a discreet way to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth in less than 12 months.
Ceramic braces, or “white braces” as they’re also known, work the same as metal braces, but are more discreet due to tooth-coloured brackets.
As ceramic braces are less visible, they are often the go-to choice for patients who might feel self-conscious with regular or traditional braces, but don’t want to opt for Invisalign clear aligners.

Ceramic braces are successful in treating problems like:
The first part of the process is an orthodontic assessment carried out by Dr Bonatti, who will review your medical history, identify your expectations and fully assess your facial proportions, bite, speech and chewing function.
From here, we can draw up a plan for your ceramic brace treatment and back this up with full mouth x-rays, models of your teeth, facial photographs of your face, bite, profile and smile.
Next, we’ll create a healthy foundation, with a general exam to ensure there are no signs present of decay, cavities or gum disease – consider it as a pre-screening for treatment.
Ceramic braces aren’t your only alternative to metal braces, in fact, there are several types of braces you can explore – even ones that sit behind your teeth (lingual braces). Depending on your preferences, or how fast you want straighter teeth, certain treatments will be more applicable to your situation.
