Metal Braces Melbourne

Metal Braces are the more traditional method of teeth straightening and are extremely popular due to their success in treating misaligned teeth for years. Over recent years, metal braces have seen some major innovations and improvements in their design, making them far less noticeable and more comfortable than they used to be. Metal braces are a great orthodontic option for treating kids, teens and adults, even those with severe bite issues.

Traditional braces or metal braces are what we all have seen and known. They are the most common system used for aligning teeth. As braces have been used the most throughout the years, they are by far the most successful in getting you the perfect aligned teeth. At Gorgeous Smiles we customize brackets to each patient and each tooth with its crowding, spacing or rotation, you can never use one size fits all when it comes to dentistry. So, by customizing the braces to each individual we get the end result faster, safer and better!

Care to make the procedure more fun? With our state-of-the-art custom-made braces, you have the option of adding colourful elastics to make your journey more unique. Of course, you also have the option of going plain or colourless if that is what you would prefer. Metal braces with arch wires put pressure the way our dentist wants them too and align your teeth to the way they are supposed to be.

Ceramic Braces Melbourne

Ceramic Braces are known as the clear alternative to metal braces and are made of ceramic, so they are much less noticeable when you smile or talk while still having a very strong hold of your teeth. Although, it is important to keep in mind that ceramic braces tend to need replacing much more often and their only benefit over traditional metal braces is their discrete appearance. Ceramic braces are mainly used on adult patients as they address most of the patient’s cosmetic concerns. However, as they are more brittle, they require the patient to maintain and care for them throughout the treatment, more so than metal braces. Please note that not every patient is eligible to have ceramic braces. Your dentist must first carry out a thorough examination of your oral environment before confirming that you are a suitable candidate for ceramic braces or not. Although if you are after an invisible option for aligning your teeth, Invisalign or SureSmile Clear Aligners can also be a good choice for you.

Lingual Braces Melbourne

Lingual braces work in the same way as traditional braces but are placed on the back of your teeth toward the tongue. Therefore, they are not visible when you smile and speak. They are mostly used to treat front teeth as you have to consider that they would be more uncomfortable toward your tongue. Not everyone can be a suitable candidate to have lingual braces. You must first have a thorough examination with your dentist before confirming your suitability. If you are looking for a more discrete orthodontic treatment, you might want to consider Invisalign or SureSmile Clear Aligners.

Metal Braces vs. Ceramic Braces

Metal and Ceramic Braces work in the same way and thus, produce the same results. The main difference is that Ceramic Braces are less visible, making them more popular for appearance-conscious adults. However, due to the materials used, Ceramic Braces are often more expensive than their metal counterpart, and sometimes treatment may take longer with Ceramic Braces as a result of the extra friction of the ceramic material. Ceramic Braces also require more care and maintenance due to their material. Although both treatment options are able to correct malocclusions and problems with your bite.

Are Dental Braces Right for You?

This is not a question you can find the answer to online. The best way to determine the best orthodontic treatment for you is to visit your dentist for a consultation in which they can examine your teeth and provide you with the most appropriate teeth straightening options, specific to your gorgeous smile. However, if you are experiencing crowded, crooked, overlapping or gapped teeth, overbites, underbites and crossbites, then you should definitely look into orthodontic treatment.
