These are essentially metal braces with ceramic brackets which are suited to your teeth color. They are less noticeable as the color is matched to your teeth. Typically, you will notice the horizontal connecting wire rather than the metal plates on each tooth. Having ceramic brackets will cost you approximately $500 in addition to the cost of normal braces. These are a great option if you are concerned about the look of your smile but cannot afford lingual (behind the teeth) braces or Invisalign.
