Our invisible braces use a series of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into position. They're removable and virtually invisible to those around you.
Traditional fixed metal braces we use are a combination of metal brackets and elastic bands to straighten teeth. However the brackets we offer are much smaller, less bulky and more comfortable to wear.
Ceramic braces are much like metal braces, except that they are made from ceramic material. Hence, they are teeth-colored and less visible. Also, they are smoother and stronger than the traditional braces.
Self-ligating braces use brackets that have a sliding mechanism, which allows the wire to move in response to your teeth. This means that there is no need for the elastic bands used with traditional braces.
Lingual braces are attached to the back surface of your teeth, hence provide aesthetic benefits. Also, another advantage of lingual braces is that there is less risk of decalcification (loss of calcium from teeth) because the inside surface of your teeth does not lose calcium easily.
To get the best results from your braces you need to keep them in good condition. Here are some top tips on caring for your braces.
