For a less noticeable, but equally effective, straightening method, we can use ceramic braces. These work in the same way as fixed metal braces but the tooth-coloured brackets and wires make the straightening process a lot less obvious.
We use Clarity™ ceramic brackets as their small size and colour means they blend into the background and provide unobtrusive support for inconspicuous wires.
How they can help
- Predictable results for a wide range of orthodontic issues
- Aesthetically appealing
Just like conventional metal braces, brackets are fixed securely to the teeth using a strong dental adhesive. A wire is attached and shaped so your teeth eventually move to a new position.
Treatment usually takes between 18-24 months and, during this time, we will make adjustments to your brace to keep teeth heading in the right direction.
Following treatment, you will need to wear a retainer to make sure your teeth continue to stay lovely and straight.
