Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces. The big difference is the appearance. The brackets are made from a glass-like composite material that appears translucent. The ligatures (rubber bands) are often white or clear. Even the metal arch can be tooth-colored. These braces are typically good for high school age patients and adults. Morgan Orthodontics provides clear braces in Lansdowne, Virginia, for our patients. To plan an orthodontic appointment with our orthodontist, Dr. Kelly Morgan, call 703-723-5900.
