Ceramic (Clear, Tooth-Coloured) Braces
You'll be noticed - but your braces won't! Ceramic braces are less visible on your teeth than metal braces and are often chosen by older teenagers and adults who prefer a more esthetic option. These tend to be used on upper front teeth more than lower teeth. We use Radiance brackets which are the clearest bracket available to orthodontists. These beautiful brackets are created from a single crystal of pure grown sapphire – one of the hardest materials in nature, second only to diamond.

Clear aligners, like Invisalign, are thin removable clear medical-grade trays that help guide your teeth into position. They are one of the most esthetic options available. As orthodontists, our doctors use their expertise and advanced training in the complex biomechanics of moving teeth to help you achieve a fantastic smile with clear aligners!

Metal braces are the most common types of bracket chosen by our patients! We exclusively use advanced low-profile brackets of the highest quality that are more comfortable than many types of appliances used in the past. You have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) that are changed at each visit. We have 16 fun colours to choose from! Our patients often style their braces for upcoming holidays, their school colours, or favourite sports team. Learn more about the parts of braces here.
