About Braces

Benefits of conventional braces

Conventional braces still have a lot going for them despite the rise of Clear Aligners such as Invisalign.

Thanks to advances in technology, today’s braces are more comfortable, sleeker and more discreet. They’re also more affordable.

And braces remain the only solution for complex orthodontic problems such as severe teeth crowding and significantly protruding teeth.

Braces have a high success rate among all age groups, boosting self-confidence by eliminating embarrassment over revealing unsightly teeth when you smile, laugh or eat.

Types of braces

The two main types of braces are metal or ceramic.


Metal braces

Metal braces are still the standard orthodontic treatment and the best way to fix severe cases of crowded teeth.  They’re the most affordable type of braces but also the least discreet, although modern braces are less conspicuous than ever.


Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces have clear or tooth-coloured ceramic brackets that match your teeth, but they can be prone to staining without proper care. Ceramic braces cost more than metal braces but work faster than plastic aligners.

Clear Aligners technology

Clear aligners are the most popular removable oral appliances to straighten teeth.

Braces cost

Braces cost less than clear aligners.

Metal braces tend to be the most affordable.

Clear Aligners costs more than both metal braces and ceramic braces.

What can braces do?
