What Are Porcelain Ceramic Braces?
Porcelain ceramic braces in Whittier are similar to metal braces in that they’re made of the same three components – brackets, an archwire, and rubber bands.
In this case, though, the brackets are made of porcelain instead of metal. Porcelain is a type of ceramic that is heated to create a translucent shade of white, which allows us to match the brackets to the natural color of your teeth.
The archwire, too, can be made of metal or another substance that is clear or white. The rubber bands come in a variety of colors as well, including white or clear.
