Ceramic Braces Birmingham

If you are looking to improve your smile then you may be considering orthodontic braces. Braces are one of the best ways to align your teeth for that perfect smile, however there are many different styles and types of braces available on the market today. If you have been looking for a way to straighten your teeth without having to sacrifice aesthetics then our Birmingham Orthodontics service may be just what you are looking for.

Ceramic Braces vs. Metal Braces Birmingham

Ceramic braces are a great choice for those who want an understated way of getting their teeth straightened. Ceramic braces are a lot like metal braces with the exception that they are made out of porcelain that has the same colour as your teeth, and they have smoother brackets with more rounded edges, meaning they lie flatter against your teeth, making them more comfortable, less bulky and more discreet.

Metal braces are made with stainless steel and are easily spotted when the wearer smiles and whilst metal braces Birmingham are always a great choice, ceramic braces tend to be more popular among our adult patients because they are a more discreet treatment option.

Ceramic braces blend in with your teeth and this makes them a great choice if you are feeling self-conscious about wearing the traditional metal braces.

When it comes to the cost of ceramic braces Birmingham they are slightly more expensive than metal braces Birmingham, however with Orthodontics For You, you can get the ultimate Hollywood smile and spread the cost of your treatment without having to undergo credit checks by choosing our monthly direct debit option.

The Increasing Popularity of Ceramic Braces

Another brace type that you may be familiar with is Invisalign Birmingham. At Orthodontics For You, we provide excellent Invisalign services and while these clear aligners remain popular especially among adults, ceramic braces are strong competition for adults looking to straighten their teeth and improve their smile, without sacrificing their appearance.

Depending on your individual treatment plan, you’ll wear your ceramic brace for approximately 12 to 18 months before having it removed.  Of course, to find out more about how long your unique treatment plan will last, we recommend booking a free consultation with our orthodontist who can assess your teeth and create a bespoke treatment plan that us as unique as you are.


One of the things you may be wondering is whether or not ceramic braces can break very easily? While ceramic braces are often not as strong as metal braces, they are not very easy to break and are just as effective at making corrections to your teeth as metal braces.

With any braces treatment, at Orthodontics For You we provide guidance and care tips on how to best look after your brace.  Your orthodontist will give you some best practices that you should adhere to throughout treatment to ensure your braces (and comfort) are not compromised.
