White Teeth Straightening Braces

Straighten your teeth with our discreet white brace for a beautiful smile.

White ceramic braces are an attractive alternative to metal braces as they are much less noticeable. The brackets are a similar size and shape to metal brackets but are clear or tooth coloured and so blend in more. White ceramic braces are the best treatment option for patients with extreme irregularities that might not suitable for Invisalign (clear aligners) treatment. With white ceramic braces at Gosforth Dental Surgery, you can be sure of getting great results.

Clear or ceramic brackets are fitted to the front of your teeth. Flexible archwires are fitted into the brackets and slowly spread to a curved archform. This ‘elastic recoil’ gently pushes the teeth into proper alignment. The archwires are changed when needed throughout treatment. Additional forces can be created with clear elastic bands when required.

Treatment begins when the brackets and wires are fitted. These will remain on your teeth for the entirety of the treatment. But, as the material used is so discreet, the white ceramic brace is a great alternative to other noticeable systems. Your brace is realigned and adjusted every 4-5 weeks, according to the movement of your teeth until they sit in the desired position.

At Gosforth Dental Surgery, the treatment includes your retainers. Because teeth can move even after orthodontic treatment, retainers will make sure your teeth stay in their new position.
