Chris Robertson | Orthodontic Braces | Dunedin Orthodontist

Metal Braces

These are standard braces. The orthodontic brackets are made of stainless steel and each one bonds directly to the surface of the tooth. When an archwire is attached into the bracket slot it enables controlled movement of the teeth in all planes of space. Archwires nowadays are made of different materials which provide more gentle forces than old fashioned braces and provide more patient comfort.

Clear Porcelain Braces

Clear braces do the same job as metal braces they are just less obvious and therefore more aesthetic.


Braces are not themselves coloured, but can be “dressed up” with coloured rubber rings (elastomers).
