I came to know about tooth-colored braces and heard that it is very costly too as it has cosmetic advantage. Is the treatment so costly? Has it got any disadvantages and how it differs in function from metal braces? Kindly clarify

  • Yes there are tooth colored braces available known as ceramic braces. They are quite expensive as compared to metallic braces. The treatment plan remains the same but it has cosmetic advantage. The disadvantage is that they sometimes gets stains and look bad. Normally they are worn on the upper teeth. They cannot be put on lower as they are brittle and can break and they can cause the wearing of tooth being ceramic.
