These are standard braces. The orthodontic brackets are made of stainless steel and each one is attached directly to the surface of the tooth. When a wire is placed into the bracket slot it enables careful movement of the teeth in multiple directions. Modern wires are made of different materials and provide more gentle forces than old fashioned braces, as well as improved patient comfort.
Clear Porcelain Braces
Clear braces do a similar job to metal braces although they are less obvious and therefore more aesthetic.
Braces are not themselves coloured, but can be “dressed up” with coloured rubber rings (elastomers). This is a really popular option with our younger patients at Shakespeare Orthodontics.
Shakespeare Orthodontics also provides Invisalign solutions to our patients in the North Shore. Invisalign does away with braces and uses thin clear aligners to move teeth. Invisalign is becoming more and more popular with our patients.
