Cosmetic Braces


Aesthetic straightening treatment

Many patients recognise the effective and reliable qualities of traditional fixed braces, but are put off by their more visible nature. At St.James Dental, we offer cosmetic braces with clear ceramic brackets and wires for a much more discreet and aesthetic straightening option.

Why choose cosmetic braces?

Cosmetic braces are increasingly popular. They give the same end results as the traditional metal option, and have comparable strength, but are much less noticeable in the mouth. It won’t be immediately obvious that you are having straightening treatment and you can smile with confidence. Cosmetic braces may take slightly longer to complete treatment, but are comfortable, strong and durable.

What does treatment involve?

Cosmetic braces treatment typically lasts between 12 and 24 months, but does vary depending on each individual patient.

  • Initially we see you for a consultation appointment, where we discuss your ideal result and take images of your teeth. We create your treatment plan and ensure you have the chance to ask any questions.
  • At your fitting appointment, we will fit your braces to your teeth. It’s normal to feel some mild tightness and discomfort for the first few days which can be managed with painkillers.
  • We will see you regularly to check on your treatment progress and adjust your braces if necessary.
  • When your treatment is complete, your braces will be removed – get ready to show off your new smile! We give you a retainer and advise you how to wear this to ensure you maintain your straight teeth for the long term.
