At Evolution Orthodontics, we offer multiple, modern braces options for our patients. Choose from traditional metal, discreet ceramic, convenient self-ligating or invisible lingual braces.

Conventional braces

Developments in technology and design have meant conventional braces are much lighter, smaller and more comfortable to wear than they previously were. They also remain one of the most effective methods of straightening teeth.

Conventional braces can also be fun as there are coloured ties which can be used, making them popular among children and teenagers.


Reasons to choose conventional braces

Metal braces are:

  • One of the most effective methods of straightening teeth
  • An affordable option
  • Colour customisable
  • Successful for even complex orthodontic cases


Clear ceramic braces

Ceramic braces are just like traditional metal braces, but less visible. This is because the brackets are made from clear ceramic material which allows them to blend in to your tooth colour. In some cases, tooth coloured archwires can also be used for added discretion.

Ceramic braces are slightly more expensive than traditional braces, but the strong, durable ceramic brackets are just as effective at straightening your smile.

Reasons to choose ceramic braces

Ceramic brackets:

  • Blend in with your tooth colour
  • Are made from durable material
  • Can be paired with discreet, clear archwires


Self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces look similar to conventional braces, but they work quite differently. Self-ligating brackets have a special clip that holds the archwire in place, doing away with the need for elastics. This allows the archwire to move as your teeth do.

Because your braces can adjust with the movement of your teeth, you won’t have to come in for as many adjustment appointments. It also means you will experience less friction, which makes treatment more comfortable, and can even speed up your treatment times.

At Evolution Orthodontics we use Innovation R, Clarity SL and Smartclip self-ligating braces.

Reasons to choose self-ligating braces

Self-ligating braces have:

  • A slide mechanism so your teeth can move freely
  • Less need for adjustments
  • Smaller brackets
  • Increased comfort
  • Faster treatment times


Invisible braces

Invisible braces (or lingual braces) are braces placed on the back surface of your teeth. Because they are behind your teeth, they are completely hidden from view.

Lingual braces are suitable for nearly all patients and offer a truly invisible way to straighten your teeth. Andrew and Julia are both providers of invisible braces, and have been specially trained in their application.

Reasons to choose invisible braces

Invisible braces:

  • Are virtually invisible
  • Won’t irritate your cheeks or gums
  • Are custom-made for your exact smile
