Ceramic braces offer an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. As they consist of subtle clear or tooth-coloured brackets with metal wires running through them, they are much less noticeable.
As with metal braces, ceramic brackets are fitted to the front of your teeth. The brackets are a similar size and shape to metal brackets but much more discreet in appearance, making them a popular choice if you feel self-conscious about wearing braces.
Ceramic braces may be an option for you if the irregularities of your teeth mean that you’re not a suitable candidate for Invisalign treatment. They also tend to be a more budget-friendly option than lingual braces, which are braces worn on the back of your teeth to make them invisible.

I decided on investigating treatment for my daughter at The Campbell Clinic as I had had treatment for implants for myself at the clinic and so was confident that she would receive excellent care.
From the initial consultation through to the actual treatment the level of information and care was excellent. The feeling as a patient is that each individual (from reception through to the clinical staff) involved in your treatment knows exactly what is going on without you having to remind them of the background. As treatment lasted for over a year this continuity of care with the same team was much appreciated.
Andrew Flett, the orthodontist at the clinic, was able to offer flexibility in appointment times, which is vital for a working parent with a school age child receiving treatment.
With regards to the restorative work done by other clinicians at the clinic, the level of craftsmanship on the cosmetic side means that we cannot see where the work has actually been done.
Crucially, all appointments ran to time and we were kept fully informed at each visit as to where we were in the treatment plan.
The result of my daughter’s treatment is excellent.
I would most certainly recommend The Campbell Clinic, without hesitation.
