If you are looking for a less visible way to effectively straighten your teeth in the Shepherd’s Bush, Westfield and West London area, then iDental is the place for you. We are pleased to offer orthodontic treatment using Clear Fixed Braces, which accurately align your teeth while being more aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal braces.
Clear Braces work in a very similar way to Fixed Metal Braces but have the added advantage of being more discreet due to the materials they are made from. This makes them a more attractive option for people who require traditional orthodontic treatment but are self-conscious or concerned about the appearance of their smile.
The brackets attached to the front of the teeth are made from clear ceramic or polycarbonate (a type of plastic) and the brace wires can additionally be coated white. The wire gently adjusts the position of the teeth over time into the desired position.
While other, more modern, orthodontic treatments (such as Invisalign) are even less visible, Fixed Clear Braces are able to offer the greater versatility and accuracy of traditional braces.
Fixed Clear Braces are ideal for anyone requiring traditional orthodontic treatment who would prefer to wear brackets that are less noticeable. They are used to treat many different orthodontic issues such as protruding teeth, gaps, over-crowding and bite problems and can be used by adults as well as children and teenagers. At your initial consultation your dentist will advise you on the most appropriate form of treatment for your individual case.
At iDental, we offer Fixed Clear Braces that are as competitively priced and affordable as possible. Please visit our Fees Page for all our latest prices.
Similarly to Metal Braces, the treatment usually takes between 6 and 18 months. The exact length of the process depends on the individual case. Regular visits to the practice are also required to check progress and for adjustments to be made when necessary.
Clear Braces are very effective and the results can transform your smile – though it is very important to care for your teeth throughout the whole process. As Fixed Braces cannot be removed during treatment they need to be carefully looked after in order to keep your mouth healthy. When the braces are finally removed, a retainer is required to ensure that your teeth remain in their new position.
