iSmile offers a variety of braces to suit different orthodontic needs. Our most common options are:
We use a state-of-the-art self-litigating method to hold the wire in place for all of our bracket systems. This allows us to move your teeth a little faster, prolongs the lifespan and durability of the wires and means we no longer use coloured bands which trap food and require more frequent appointments.
The most popular style of braces is the traditional metal frame. Constantly being refined and improved, they are more comfortable now than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, these metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and arch-wires. Patients also have the option of adding coloured elastics for a more unique and colourful smile.
We also offer clear or ceramic braces. These work in the same way as the traditional metal braces but are far less visible because they use clear materials rather than metal. These are most commonly used for teenagers and adults who have cosmetic concerns. They are less noticeable but do require more attention and more diligent oral hygiene. Ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts and are therefore more often used on the upper front teeth rather than the lower set.
If you’re looking for an effective treatment option to straighten your teeth and create the smile you’ve always wanted, braces are a brilliant choice! Get in touch with our team to find out more about braces or to book in for a consultation.
