Ceramic braces still follow the bracket and wire system like traditional metal braces, but they’re made of a durable, clear plastic instead, so they’re more subtle at a glance. Some kinds of ceramic braces also come in tooth color, so while they’re not technically clear, they blend in with your natural tooth color.

The advantage of ceramic braces is that they are less noticeable than metal braces. Also, due to the softer material, they are less likely to irritate sensitive mouths. That said, they have the same care concerns as metal braces. They can chip, crack, or stain if not taken care of properly. Like metal braces, you should avoid hard foods, or cut them into smaller bites, and be very careful with anything sticky.
