What are clear braces?
The trend in cosmetic orthodontics has been made possible by the development of clear braces. Gone are the days when you would have to wear metal ‘train track’ braces for 2 years. The term ‘clear braces’ refers to the new wave of cosmetic teeth straightening options that sit discreetly on your smile.
Currently, the clearest brace is a removable ‘invisible’ positioner, of which there are many types. You may have heard of Invisalign, but there are many different brand names providing essentially the same product. That is: a metal free removable ‘clear’ or ‘invisible’ brace that is comfortable and effective and at the same time very very discreet.
At Bamboo Dental we use a clear brace known as Smilelign.
To begin the process, computer images of your teeth are generated representing how your teeth look before treatment, at the end of treatment and at every stage inbetween. These images are used to construct acrylic models of your teeth on which the clear braces are made. You sequentially wear each clear brace for approximately 2 weeks before moving onto the next one.
Treatment times can be as little as six months for very simple tooth alignment however treatment times are usually up to 12 months, and occasionally 18 months.
Prices start from £145/ month for 12 months or £51/month for 24 months with initial 30% deposit.
Clear braces are a great way to secretly get a fantastic smile.
