Metal Braces are the most common sort of teeth straightening appliances available. The appliances are made out of stainless steel metal brackets and various wires, which mean they are very strong, safe and compact.
Metal braces are often a popular choice with younger people, as they can enjoy choosing different coloured modules to decorate and have some fun to complete ‘the look’.
Modules are small elastic rings that hold the wire and the brackets together; they come in a range of colours ranging from standard to fluorescence and are changed at most appointments.
Clear Ceramic Braces
Clear Ceramic braces are similar to the traditional metal type, except they are practically clear.
Generally they are slightly larger than the metal ones, but aesthetically more attractive.
Ceramic braces are often a popular choice with adult patients, who want their teeth straightened but don’t want it to be too obvious.
Like the metal brackets, a module is required to hold the wire and the bracket together, but luckily we offer clear and tooth coloured choices to blend in with the brackets.
