CLEAR™ Sapphire Ceramic Bracket Flawless, pure Monocrystalline
A solid single crystal, continuous edge to edge with no grain boundaries produces maximum optical clarity.
Most of the ceramic brackets on the market are made out of either polycrystalline or monocrystalline sapphire. The primary difference between these two materials is their optical clarity. Monocrystalline alumina ceramic brackets have a more translucent (clearer) appearance whereas polycrystalline brackets are more whitish (tooth colored). This form of alumina has been selected because of its superior physical strength and favorable optical and aesthetic properties. Our ceramics are nonporous, resistant to staining and eliminate the absorption of odors.
