How your teeth look can affect your self confidence and making the decision to straighten your teeth can be exciting and a little daunting. You may be excited about having a new, straight smile, but concerned about how you will look while your teeth are changing. Unlike traditional metal braces, our clear brace system uses ceramic brackets which are discreet and blend with your natural teeth.

Tooth coloured brackets are safely bonded to your teeth and a system of wires will gently guide your teeth back into alignment. Ceramic braces can treat exactly the same type of orthodontic problems as traditional fixed braces. They are excellent for correcting teeth that are overcrowded, unwanted spaces or teeth that are rotated or protruding.

The main benefit of choosing ceramic braces is their discreet appearance. They are much more cosmetically appealing than traditional fixed metal braces and are still able to deliver the same results.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Getting the brace fitted is a completely painless procedure. It is normal to feel some discomfort for the first few days after getting the brace fitted as your teeth begin to move. A soft diet is recommended for the first few days.  Your dentist will give you advice on aftercare.

    The length of treatment is something that can only be determined by your dentist as it will depend on the severity of your problems. Usually treatment takes around 6 to 18 months.

    With any brace you need to be careful what you eat. A softer diet is recommended and hard foods like crusty rolls, popcorn, sweets are to be avoided as they could damage the brace. The wire is attached to the bracket with clear elastics which can stain. Highly coloured food and drinks should be avoided eg. curry, red wine etc. The elastics are changed at each visit so can be refreshed if they do become stained.
