Clear Braces are the latest technique to straighten your teeth without unsightly metal brackets. A straight smile can be achieved in 12 to 36 months depending on your current situation. 

No one needs to put up with a crooked or uneven smile. Advances in technology now mean that correction of bite problems can start as young as age 5 or 6. Adults and teenagers can wear braces or ‘aligners’ which are not only ‘nearly invisible’ but also removable for cleaning.  So, you can smile during your treatment as well as after!

Clear braces uses a series of clear aligners as well as other methods of orthodontics that are all clear and are custom-moulded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you'll be proud of.

  • Remove your aligners to eat, brush and floss
  • Change aligners every two weeks
  • Your teeth move little by little
  • Regular progress checks with your dentist or orthodontist

Invisible braces offer the following advantages:

Invisible - since the aligners are transparent most people won’t even notice them and so nobody will know that you are straightening your teeth. So you will be able to smile more during treatment as well as after.

Removable - you take your clear braces out to eat and drink what you want whilst in treatment, also dental hygiene is not problem, something that can be difficult when wearing fixed orthodontic braces.

Comfortable - conventional braces can cause irritation to your teeth and gums because of the metal wires and bands, with clear aligners are comfortable and you shouldn’t experience such problems.
