There’s a common assumption that braces are only for kids and adolescents, but in reality, it’s never too late to use orthodontic treatment to beautify your smile. Many of our orthodontics patients are adults who love the improvements that braces have made in the appearance of their teeth.

Recent innovations in the field of orthodontics have resulted in braces designed specifically for adult dental patients. These appliances minimise discomfort and address appearance concerns. Although most brace types are suitable for adults, your dentist will help you choose one that will achieve the desired results while bearing your aesthetic needs in mind.

Ceramic braces allow you to smile confidently even while your teeth are being straightened. Their shape and size resemble traditional metal braces, but the brackets are either tooth-coloured or completely transparent to minimise visibility. The brackets can stain if not properly cared for, but regular brushing and cleaning limits this risk.

Fixed clear braces are another popular alternative to metal braces, as they deliver all of the alignment and straightening benefits while remaining comparatively invisible. Clear braces use translucent ceramic brackets, allowing them to blend seamlessly with your own teeth and hide the fact that you are having orthodontic work done. Many types also have tooth-coloured wires that make your braces even less noticeable.

Orthodontic treatment such as ceramic and fixed clear braces give you a beautiful, straight smile that will last a lifetime. Straightening your teeth also eliminates unattractive problems like overcrowding and makes it easier for you to have more advanced cosmetic work such as veneers crowns, or implants. Straighter teeth are also easier to keep clean, minimising the risk of future dental complications. And perhaps most important of all, you will have a smile you can be proud of.
