Traditional braces are what most people picture when they think of braces. Although they are still made of stainless steel, the brackets themselves are smaller than they were in the past. They may not be the most cosmetically appealing choice, but they remain excellent at moving teeth with precision and achieving a long-term stable result.
Aesthetic braces are broadly similar to traditional braces but are more cosmetically pleasing clear or tooth-coloured brackets. They are popular with adult patients and older teenagers due to their aesthetic and inconspicuous design.
Invisible Braces – Invisalign
Invisalign are also fast becoming a popular choice of treatment due to their inconspicuous design. A series of clear, removable aligners are custom-made specifically for your teeth. The aligners are replaced every two weeks so that your teeth gradually move little by little, week by week, towards the projected final position. Comfortable, clear and removable: they are best suited for those milder cases of mal-alignment.
