Achieving Straight Teeth

Straight teeth can be achieved by wearing braces, nowadays braces no longer have to look unsightly with the invention of clear braces.

What are clear braces?

Clear braces are clear positioning trays which help guide your teeth from their current position to the desired position.  They put gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into the new position.  Furthermore, they are wire-free, invisible and removable, allowing you to eat and speak in public without any embarrassment.  With clear braces, you just need to remove them when eating, to brush your teeth and flossing as normal, then pop them back in.  The average time for the treatment is around six months and they provide the same type of results as fixed braces.
