Ceramic Braces in Bristol
For some orthodontic problems, there’s still no competition for traditional fixed braces. But not everyone loves the idea of spending months wearing conspicuous steel brackets and wires.
If this sounds familiar, ceramic tooth-coloured braces could be the solution you’ve been searching for.
Ceramic braces swap metal components for low profile clear and tooth-coloured brackets and wires. That’s why we often call them tooth-coloured or clear braces. They get the same great results as conventional steel braces – but they’re much harder to spot.
And if you’d rather be bold, ask our team about ceramic braces in a range of vibrant custom colours.
The Advantage is Clear
There’s no doubt that ceramic braces are more discreet than their traditional counterparts.
But improved aesthetics isn’t the only advantage.
Patients say clear braces feel much more comfortable than steel. They’re also much kinder to tooth enamel and easier to remove at the end of treatment.
And if you’re concerned that clear ceramic braces aren’t as robust as their steel counterparts, don’t worry. The ceramic we use in clear braces production is more than tough enough to stand up to prolonged wear.
Treatment with Clear Fixed Braces
Arrange a consultation at our Bristol clinic and our team can let you know if clear braces are the best solution for you.
If you decide to go ahead, we’ll begin by taking a digital 3D impression of your teeth so that our laboratory can begin producing your custom ceramic braces.
We’ll fix the braces in place at a follow-up appointment. We’ll see you again in a few weeks to check on progress and make adjustments.
With gradual adjustments from our expert team, you can expect to see amazing results in 12-18 months.
Patients are Clearly Thrilled
Never have I come across such a friendly and professional team. From the moment the door was answered (Covid Rules) to the moment I left the surgery I was treated with the utmost friendliness and professionalism.
Honestly this is such a good dental practice. Everyone is so friendly, welcoming and really puts you at ease. I’m usually really anxious about going to dentists but I felt relaxed as I could tell I was in good hands :-)
All staff were very friendly and chatty and made me feel very welcome. The orthodontist and his assistant were very good at explaining procedures and options to me and made me feel at ease.
I highly recommend them 😁
