What type of braces are right for you?

Over time braces have received a bad stereotype about being big, bulky metal braces with very noticeable silver wires on the forefront of your teeth. Thanks to the evolution of orthodontics, that simply is not the case anymore. Metal braces have now gotten considerably smaller which makes them more visually appealing than they used to be. But also, there are many other, more discrete options that you can choose from. There are now even removable braces and also braces that are virtually invisible!

If you are thinking about getting teeth straightening treatment then book a consultation with us today. Many adults are concerned about how they will look with big bulky silver brackets on their teeth which is why we offer a range of braces you can choose from. If you are looking for braces that are less visible than metal braces then we can offer you damon braces, clear braces, ceramic braces, or even Invisalign treatment. 

While crooked teeth may cause some issues, many people like to straighten their teeth because they believe it looks better. This is not always the case though, orthodontic treatments are also used to treat various dental issues.

Here are some of the options that are available to you:

Damon braces

These braces work a little bit differently to your regular metal braces. The damon system is fitted just like regular braces but it gradually tightens itself over time. This means that they are less painful, require fewer dental visits and are a lot easier to clean.

Invisalign is a revolutionary tooth straightening treatment that is increasingly popular. This treatment uses clear plastic aligners that are also removable to gently reposition the teeth. Invisalign trays are made from transparent plastic, which means that they are completely unnoticeable.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces work in a very similar way to metal braces, the brackets are stuck on to the teeth and are used to hold a wire in place which slowly straightens the teeth over time. Ceramic braces are made from a tooth-coloured ceramic material, which allows them to straighten your teeth without being seen.

Incognito braces

Incognito braces work the same as traditional metal braces except, instead of brackets being attached to the front of your teeth, they are attached to the back of your teeth. This makes them harder to spot than regular braces.
