For some clients, particularly adults, the appearance of a brace is a significant factor.
Although steel braces are cost-effective and commonly used, we also provide the invisible lingual braces which are placed at the back of the teeth, as well as clear ceramic braces that are less noticeable due to their tooth-coloured brackets.
There are many other factors to consider when choosing your brace. These can include treatment time, the desired final result and the overall cost of treatment.
While it’s important to have a plan and strive for excellence, relentlessly pursuing “perfection” may not always be wise.
This approach can significantly impact treatment duration, require advanced or invasive procedures that may not be necessary, and increase costs. We value and respect your goals and personal perception of beauty.
Our treatment plans are customized to ensure a naturally beautiful outcome while considering your concerns and biological characteristics. We aim to provide the highest quality within the framework of your individual needs. We minimize the use of cosmetic bonding, veneers, and extensive makeovers, as these may require periodic maintenance over time. Nothing compares to the natural beauty and biological compatibility of ones own teeth.
A question we ask our clients which can sometimes stump them momentarily is how they feel about their bite. You’ve probably heard the terms overbite and underbite, but what do they mean?
If someone has an overbite their front teeth drape over their lower teeth. On the other hand if someone is suffering with an underbite, their bottom teeth will sit in front of their upper teeth. Both can lead to joint and cosmetic issues.
They are not the only bite problems; a crossbite is found in those who have certain upper teeth that do not align with the lower ones. Another bite problem that someone could seek treatment for is an open bite, where a large open gap between the top and bottom front teeth can cause speech and chewing problems.
