Al Sawai Medical Centre offers the most comprehensive Orthodontics care for its patients. Part of the Orthodontics department is to provide the best of solutions when it comes to braces. Braces are an old method of correcting teeth alignment keeping future appearance in mind. That said, braces go way beyond just correcting appearances and have plenty of benefits attached to it.
Traditionally, orthodontics have recommended the use of Metal Braces, but taking today’s modern population under consideration, many find it difficult to carry around those metal braces for the long periods braces are supposed to be worn. For the reason of providing our patients with a much choice with options of braces, we have the ceramic variety.
Ceramic or metal, both braces have the same purpose in the end, but the ceramic kind is a viable alternative to the metal type. The big difference with Ceramic braces is their appearance on the outside. While metal braces are more noticeable, ceramic is less visible on that front.
Ceramic Braces are made from porcelain or ceramic material while in some cases plastic is also used as an alternative. They are designed in a way they blend in with your teeth colour and thus ensuring it’s hardly noticeable, while in many cases they also come in coloured.
