Offering patients the option of invisible teeth straightening.

Fixed braces and ceramic braces can treat virtually any orthodontic issue with your teeth.

What are ceramic braces?

Ceramic braces are fixed types of brace that blend in with your teeth. They have become extremely popular with adult and teen patients who want a fixed brace without altering their appearance dramatically during treatment.

Ceramic braces can correct the following structural problems with your smile:

  • Gaps.
  • Overcrowding and overlapping of teeth.
  • Overbites and underbites.
  • Misaligned teeth.
  • Wide spaces and crossbites.

Why choose Ceramic Braces?

Discreet teeth straightening

Ceramic braces are the discreet sister brace of the traditional metal brace. Their ceramic brackets and wires are tooth-like in shade, so they won’t become a conspicuous part of your smile when you’re wearing them. We highly recommend ceramic braces if you’re apprehensive about your brace standing out and infringing on your confidence to smile.

State-of-the-art system

Ceramic braces use self-litigating technology that enables the wires to independently tighten and self-adjust. This streamlines the treatment process, making it more efficient. Ligatures are also rarely needed as the brackets clasp the wires, reducing the number of appointments you need to come in for during the treatment process.

Gentle teeth straightening

Ceramic braces use non-abrasive metals and smaller components than traditional metal braces. This means they’re less likely to make contact with the soft tissues in your mouth and cause discomfort. Their smaller size also means you will quickly get used to wearing them.

Healthier teeth

Teeth straightening treatment leaves you without gaps in your smile. Brushing and flossing will become much easier once your teeth are where they should be in your mouth.

Your teeth straightening journey with ceramic braces

Step 1: Consultation

Every teeth straightening journey at Ashbourne Road Dental starts with a consultation. This important step allows us to understand how your smile has affected your lifestyle and whether Invisalign® is the most viable teeth straightening method for your case.

If this is the case, we will take digital scans with our iTero machine, which streamlines the planning process for our patients. We will also take X-rays and photographs to assess the condition of your jaw and oral soft tissues.

Step 2: Treatment planning

Your braces are made to fit in with your tooth shade and tooth and mouth measurements. They are custom-made by the professional dental technician we are partnered with.

Step 3: Fitting your brace

The brackets are bonded to each tooth, and the wire is weaved in between. Bonding each individual bracket to each tooth has conservative benefits for your enamel, which will be at a reduced risk of decalcification during treatment.


Are ceramic braces better than Invisalign®?

We offer both innovative brace systems here at Ashbourne Road Dental, and both have their own characteristics for teeth straightening.

Ceramic braces are generally more suitable for severe orthodontic problems, and the average treatment time is slightly longer (12-24 months).

Why choose Ashbourne Road Dental for teeth straightening treatment?

Ashbourne Road Dental is home to professional dentists who have overseen hundreds of teeth straightening cases with ceramic braces. They will be able to concisely explain all your available options in detail.

Can I eat normally with my ceramic braces?

Actions like eating and brushing will demand a bit of care when wearing ceramic braces. Hard and sticky foods are best avoided when fixed braces are worn, as these can prove challenging to remove from your brace and even cause damage to it.

If you don’t like the idea of adjusting your diet and brushing habits, a more flexible teeth straightening treatment like Invisalign® may be more suitable.
