Ceramic Braces at Smile Tailor in the City of London

In the past, it was mainly children and teenagers who would be treated with fixed braces. However, with more and more adults opting to align their teeth to create the perfect smile, ceramic braces are a modern, discreet solution.

Ceramic braces are a fixed method of tooth-straightening and work in much the same way as metal braces. The main difference between the two types of fixed braces is the material of the brackets and wires that attach to the front surface of the teeth. With ceramic braces, the brackets are made from translucent, tooth-coloured ceramic. Some ceramic options have tooth-coloured wires too. 

Ceramic braces are extremely effective in treating a large variety of dental misalignments including, gaps, overcrowding, bite issues, and severe malocclusion. Our award-winning orthodontist will advise you on which alignment treatment is best suited to your individual dental case and personal needs. At Smile Tailor, we pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach to dentistry. 

At Smile Tailor, our ceramic braces are expertly crafted and custom-made to seamlessly match your natural smile. Ceramic braces are less noticeable than classic metal braces, making them the ideal choice for the self-conscious.

The Main Benefits of Ceramic Braces


Less Visible than Metal Braces

One of the key benefits of ceramic braces is that they are a less noticeable teeth-aligning option. This makes ceramic braces the ideal choice for both teenagers and adults who prefer a more discreet teeth-straightening experience.

An Effective Treatment

Usually if you choose ceramic braces they will straighten teeth at around the same speed as metal braces. So, ceramic braces solve the cosmetic issues traditionally associated with metal braces whilst offering the same efficacy and functionality.

More Comfortable

Ceramic braces tend to be more comfortable than metal braces. Quality ceramic is not as abrasive as metal and as a result, minor grazes to the gums, tongue, and inside of the mouth are avoided.

The Main Drawbacks of Ceramic Braces


Larger Bracket Size

Although, in general, the size of modern brackets are smaller than in the past, ceramic brackets are larger than metal brackets. Aesthetically this is not a problem because they are tooth-coloured and more discreet, however, it can make brushing and cleaning more difficult.

Less Durable

The quality ceramic material is not as strong as metal so ceramic braces are less durable making breakage more likely. Compliance and care are necessary to get the best result from your ceramic braces.


Because of the lighter colour of the brackets and wires, ceramic can be more prone to staining, so clients may be advised to avoid drinks such as coffee, tea, and red wine.

More Expensive

Ceramic is a more delicate, expensive material than metal and results in ceramic braces being more expensive than traditional metal braces.

At Smile Tailor, award-winning experts in teeth straightening, we find ceramic braces a modern, effective treatment option. Ceramic braces will have less of an impact on your lifestyle and confidence levels and we know that is important on the journey towards your dream smile.
