Today many people, adults, teens and children, wear braces to improve their dental health and enhance their smile.
Braces straighten teeth and can significantly enhance your appearance, but they also improve your dental health. Poorly aligned teeth can be difficult to clean, which can result in tooth decay and gum disease. An improperly aligned bite can cause excessive wear on certain teeth, which can lead to tooth loss. Braces can prevent these types of problems before they become severe.
At Smile Team Orthodontics, we offer the following braces treatments:

Braces remain the most effective and affordable orthodontic treatment available for patients of all ages.
What can braces achieve?
Braces are a fantastic way to correct improper tooth alignment and help improve the appearance of your smile in the long term.
The impact of braces is not just cosmetic, however. Poorly aligned teeth can be difficult to clean properly, resulting in tooth decay and gum disease. What’s more, misalignment can put extra pressure on certain teeth, leading them to become weak and eventually break. Straightening teeth with braces can protect the mouth from these more complex issues, too.
Types of braces available
From colourful to clear braces, Smile Team offer a range of options to suit your wants and needs.
Metal braces are the most common type – they are both effective and affordable. Consisting of small, smooth brackets, an archwire, and small elastic bands, metal braces gently guide the teeth into the desired position. Brackets and elastics come in a variety of colours, and kids and teenagers can have fun designing their own custom orthodontic solution.
Clear braces – also referred to as ceramic braces – are a fantastic option if you want something more discreet. Crafted from high-quality ceramic, the near-invisible brackets are tooth-coloured so blend effectively with the natural colour of your teeth. Because they are more subtle, clear braces are a popular choice with teens and adults.
If you want truly invisible braces, lingual braces may be the best option for you. Unlike metal and clear braces, lingual braces are positioned on the tongue side of the teeth so they aren’t visible when talking or smiling. At Smile Team, we use the Incognito brand of lingual braces.
