Orthodontics involves a variety of fixed or removable braces to gently guide a patient's natural teeth into the most desirable position, resulting in a healthy, natural smile.
Straight teeth not only result in a beautiful smile but a healthier one too.
Anyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment and with new technology, leading to reduced treatment times and inconspicuous braces, an ever-increasing number of adults are undergoing treatment.
We offer a range of the latest and most effective 'invisible' braces, including leading brands such as:-
Invisalign makes the decision easy, you can get a great and healthy smile without people even noticing you're going through treatment.
During your initial consultation, we'll go through all of your options and together we can find the brace and finance plan that's right for you.
We have successfully treated hundreds of patients using these techniques, some in as little as 2-3 months.
Typically, our cosmetic brace dentist will see you in our dental practice for a free consultation and assess to see whether this shortened brace treatment will suit you and also which type of brace will suit you best.
Ceramic braces are a clear alternative to metal braces using clear tooth coloured brackets. The advantage of these brackets are that they are less noticeable, which means you can smile with confidence. Ceramic brackets are a great choice for both adults and children.
The wires that are used to bring the teeth into the desired position can also be tooth coloured but as treatment progresses stronger metal wires will be needed.
Ceramic brackets are a cost effective alternative to incognito and Invisalign as there are no laboratory fees involved. Simple alignment of the front teeth can change your smile in six months.

Most people require the use of a fixed orthodontic appliance if substantial moving and adjustment is required to the teeth. Fixed metal braces are the standard pair of braces you see that are used by many school children and teenagers, they are also known as “train tracks”
The braces are small designed metal or ceramic plates called brackets, which are bonded to each tooth. In some cases metal rings called bands are fitted at the very back of the mouth. The brackets will then be attached to a thin metal wire, which is know as an archwire. The wire is held in place by elastic rings or thin wires called ligatures. These elastics now come in a range of colours to help brighten your smile during treatment.
The braces are adjusted periodically at regular intervals to achieve the best results possible, straighten teeth and correct the bite.
Modern brackets have been dramatically improved to provide a more discrete appearance. The surface area of each bracket has been reduced and a range of elastic colours now provides a choice. There is also no plastic in the roof of the mouth allowing a natural taste of foods to remain and flavour can be fully enjoyed. This product is a full time treatment which is extremely effective for most orthodontic needs. The treatment can last anywhere up to 2-3 years on average.
Fixed braces are good for achieving fine detail, they may take a bit longer than others, but offer efficient and effective results.
