Traditional Metal Braces
We love them! Traditional braces are much more discreet than you might remember them. They are visible but they are neat and quite tiny on each tooth. Lots of adults opt for traditional braces because they often have the shortest time frame attached. They are also the cheapest option for effective tooth movement.
Ceramic Tooth-Coloured Braces
A much more discreet fixed brace option, ceramic braces joined the market for those who are looking for only tooth-coloured appliance so that no metal is visible. Ceramic braces are often the choice for people who have a little more to invest into their treatment for the added benefits.
Ceramic braces reflect traditional metal braces in all other ways but cost so they are a great alternative if you are looking for a speedy result with a little more discretion.
Invisalign are an aligner-style braces tailor-made for you to gradually move your teeth into your desired position.
Lots of our patients choose Invisalign because of a software called “clincheck” which allows us to show you a digital simulation of how your teeth will look at the end of your treatment right at the beginning. We can also use the iTero scanner and see your smile results instantly on the screen. Only once you are happy with this do we create your aligners for you.
Invisalign is completely clear and is not permanently fixed to your teeth so is the most discreet and comfortable way to align your smile, this brings with it a higher investment but as with all braces this can be spread to reflect your monthly budget.
