Braces are stronger and less prone to breakage than other forms of treatment, particularly if you play a lot of sport.

Treatment time: 12 months how braces work

How Braces Work

Treatment times vary depending on age and the degree of required movement. Most patients wear braces for about 12 months - generally less time than Invisalign.
  1. Initial appointment 
    Our first step is to to check whether braces will be able to effectively treat your smile. We’ll discuss different types of braces and estimate treatment time.
  2. Braces fitted
    Before fitting braces we take moulds of your teeth to ensure they’re a comfortable shape. We then attach braces to your teeth. At this point you can choose the colour of your bands.
  3. Braces adjusted
    Every 6-8 weeks we’ll adjust your braces, helping your teeth to move into their new position. You can also change the colour of your bands.
  4. Retainer time
    Once your teeth are in their final position, your braces are removed and a retainer is fitted to hold your teeth in place for a few months. It is removable and mostly hidden from view.

Pricing

The full cost of braces will depend on your individual requirements. Braces are covered under private health insurance policies that include standard orthodontic work.

We can also set up a personalised payment plan for you, and will never charge any interest or additional fees on repayments.

Ceramic braces are less noticeable than metal braces, as they have brackets made of white or clear ceramic. They are slightly more expensive than traditional braces.
