Traditionally, braces are made using metal, plastic or ceramic brackets. These brackets are fixed in place to the front of the tooth and a wire is then held between them. Whilst braces are clinically proven to deliver very effective results, many prospective patients are afraid to wear them as they do not like the idea of their appearance during treatment. We offer a solution as our dentists can fit you with clear aligners which will give you as beautiful a smile as conventional braces will, but without compromising your appearance during the treatment. Clear aligners offers the patient a series of clear, removable aligners which are changed every 1-2 weeks. There is no tightening to be done or changing of wires. Instead, all of the adjustments are made with one new aligner. Since the aligners are clear they are hardly visible in the mouth at all and will fit perfectly against your teeth. As each aligner is individually moulded to specifically fit each patient, clear aligners are much more comfortable than conventional braces.
