Self-conscious about the look of the traditional metal braces?

Because of this, ceramic braces are commonly requested by adults and older teenagers.


Am I suited to ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces can be used in most cases except where there is a deep bite (upper teeth are covering most of the lower teeth).

In these cases, we'll place conventional metal braces on the lower teeth.
