Standard metal braces and other options

Fixed braces and other orthodontic treatments for crooked teeth

Though there are many types of cosmetic braces available on the market today, some individuals may prefer to stick to the traditional metal brackets and wires option.

The brackets we now use for metal braces are a lot smaller and less noticeable than they used to be, so wearing traditional braces is less noticeable than we might assume.

Traditional braces remain an appealing option because of the low price point compared to other brace types, but are most suitable for those who don’t mind people knowing they have braces.

Ceramic braces

Additionally, we offer ceramic braces which work the same way and are the same size as metal braces. However, ceramic braces have tooth-coloured or clear brackets that camouflage against teeth. You can even get tooth-coloured wires, making the brace even less noticeable.

Ceramic braces are slightly more expensive, but they do in some way offer the best of both worlds, since they are less noticeable than metal braces but move teeth much faster than clear plastic aligners such as Invisalign.
