Types of braces

At our central London orthodontic practice, we have the following types of braces available:

Metal braces

Traditional metal braces

Traditional metal braces are the original method of orthodontic treatment. Traditional metal braces are made up of three key parts: small metal brackets which are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, thin metal archwires which connect these brackets, and small elastic bands (ligatures) which are placed around the brackets. These parts work together to apply gentle pressure to your teeth to move them into position. 

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces work the same way as traditional metal braces do, but are more cosmetically pleasing. This is because the brackets are made from clear ceramic so aren’t as noticeable against the natural colour of your teeth. Ceramic braces are strong and come off easily at the end of treatment. The clear elastics on the brackets may stain if you regularly drink coffee, tea, red wine or even eat some dishes , so we recommend you rinse your mouth regularly.

Lingual braces

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are one of the most discreet treatment options available because the braces are fitted to the back surface of your teeth. Based on the method of traditional metal braces, lingual braces are highly effective at straightening teeth and are an ideal treatment option for adult patients who are self-conscious about having treatment or work in client-facing jobs.

Gold braces

Gold braces

Gold braces are the same as fixed metal braces but for one distinct difference, they're gold! They're just as effective in straightening your teeth because they use the bracket and archwire method of moving your teeth into position. This means you're guaranteed great results and in the meantime, you can show off your bling.
