They are made up of tooth coloured material and are hardly visible. This option is  costlier than metal ones and are also known as clear aligners.
  • Veneer: They are made up of porceline, which are tooth coloured materials. The misaligned tooth is trimmed and its impression taken to make a copy of it which is called as veneer. This type of misaligned teeth correction in Mumbai is suitable for people who have minor misalignment in just couple of front teeth.
  • Ceramic braces: In this type of braces, the brackets are made of ceramic, which is a tooth coloured material. However, the arch wire is metallic. They are similar to metal braces.
