Clear ceramic braces and metal braces
Braces are the traditional, effective way to straighten crooked teeth.
Braces are a common orthodontic treatment undertaken by children, teenagers, and adults, to straighten crooked teeth and correct bite discrepancies. Orthodontic braces can be for cosmetic purposes only, such as improving your smile, or a combination of cosmetic and functional correction, such as aligning your teeth and correcting an increased overjet, a deep bite, or a crossbite.
These consist of small brackets bonded to each tooth. Running through the brackets is an arch wire which gradually straightens the teeth over the course of your orthodontic treatment.
Here at Clear Orthodontic Studio, we provide a range of high-quality braces, clear ceramic and traditional metal braces; we’ll create a custom treatment plan for you or your child, in combination with a variety of appliances. Find out more about the types of braces we offer below or contact our clinic today on (08) 6225 5010 to book an appointment.
Clear or transparent braces are made out of ceramic to blend in with the colour of your teeth, creating a more aesthetic appearance. Clear braces still require a thin metal wire to run through these brackets, but they are more inconspicuous than traditional metal braces. We provide clear braces here at our Perth and Denmark clinics as standard to all our patients.
Metal braces nowadays are smaller and less obtrusive than in the past: they work the same way as the clear braces.
The wires running through the brackets are held in place with elastic modules. These can be coloured and changed at each appointment. Coloured modules also look great around clear ceramic brackets. We provide metal braces upon specific request.
