Tooth Coloured Braces

Clear & Ceramic Braces

Get the Best of Both Worlds


Clear and Ceramic Braces (Tooth coloured braces) are a low-visibility alternative to traditional metal braces. Ceramic braces have minimal visual impact and much less noticeable than metal braces, even up close. Clear and Ceramic braces are largely responsible for the increase in popularity of orthodontic treatment in teens and adults.

Patients who would prefer an orthodontic option that is completely invisible could consider one of the lingual brace systems such as Incognito. These braces are fitted to the inner surfaces of the teeth, next to the tongue.

Another option that is almost completely invisible option might be one of the clear aligner systems such as Invisalign. You can email us your photos for an  or visit the clinic for a consultation to find out which option would suit you best.

Advantages of Clear and Ceramic Braces (Tooth Coloured Braces)


Tooth-coloured braces are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural tooth colour, making them an ideal choice for those who prefer a more discreet orthodontic solution.


Tooth-coloured braces are effective for a wide range of orthodontic issues. They offer a balance between aesthetic appeal and functional efficiency, ensuring you achieve your ideal smile quickly.


While providing the aesthetic advantage of being less noticeable, tooth-coloured braces are a cost-effective solution for anyone seeking a blend of functionality, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal.


How do They Compare?


Tooth-coloured braces stand out for their aesthetic appeal, blending seamlessly with the natural colour of teeth for those conscious about the visibility of braces. But how do they compare to other available options?

Traditional metal braces offer effective straightening—however, they are more noticeable and may detract from your smile

Clear aligners offer invisibility but may require a longer treatment time—especially for complex cases.

Lingual braces, hidden behind the teeth, provide discretion but can be challenging to maintain.

Tooth-coloured braces strike the perfect balance between efficiency, effectiveness, aesthetics and value—making them a compelling choice for those seeking a great all-round solution.

Taking Care of Your Tooth-Coloured Braces

Maintaining tooth-coloured braces involves regular brushing and flossing to prevent staining and plaque buildup.

Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste, cleaning around the brackets and wires gently.

Flossing daily with a floss threader helps reach between teeth and wires.

Avoid foods that are hard, sticky, or may stain your braces. Regular dental checkups and visits to our hygiene team will ensure your braces remain in good condition and your treatment progresses as planned.
