At Banning Dental Group, we offer discreet braces that incorporate tooth-coloured brackets
made of a ceramic material, connected with wires that are typically either the same colour
or transparent. These braces are designed to blend in seamlessly with your smile, lessening
their impact on your overall appearance.
Your dentist will bond the ceramic brackets to the front surface of your teeth, before connecting them via the equally discreet wires.
Throughout the treatment, your ceramic braces will gently pull your teeth into the desired position. At each of your regular progress checks, your dentist will make small adjustments to your braces, tightening the wires to encourage your teeth to continue moving until you reach your goal.
Any patients, particularly adults, shy away from the idea of wearing metal braces, due to the societal implications of doing so. However, metal braces do not need to be applied to the visible front surface of your teeth to be effective.
At Banning Dental Group, we are proud to offer Incognito™ Hidden Lingual Braces. Lingual braces sit behind your teeth, rendering them almost invisible.
They comprise of metal brackets, and wires like traditional braces, except your dentist, will bond the brackets to the rear surface of your teeth instead of the front. They will then connect the brackets with metal wires. Over time, you will attend several appointments where your dentist will tighten the wires. This constant yet gentle pressure on your teeth will encourage them to move into a more desirable position, leaving you with a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
At Banning Dental Group, we are committed to using only advanced technology in out standard care and we offer INSIGNIA braces as alternative to other type of braces.
These braces differ from the traditional metal braces by the way in which the wire is secured inside the brackets. This is possible by advanced technology which customised and designs braces just for you. Insignia also allows you to experience the excitement of seeing what your smile will look like, even before the treatment starts.
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces."
However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious "metal-mouth" braces that many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past.
