What Are Porcelain or Ceramic Braces?
You may have heard of porcelain or ceramic braces and these are actually the same thing, as the terms porcelain or ceramic are used interchangeably in the context of braces. Porcelain is actually a special type of ceramic that is heated to high levels in order to create a translucent white color. This color is perfect for blending in with teeth, and thus porcelain aka ceramic braces are the best choice for people who need braces but want them to be virtually invisible. The more common term is "ceramic braces" but you may hear both terms used.
Ceramic braces are a great alternative to traditional metal braces. They work like traditional metal braces, which use brackets and wires attached to the teeth to help move the teeth into place over time. Ceramic braces can fix crooked teeth and improper teeth spacing as well as fix some bite problems.
