Orthodontic braces are becoming more popular these days as more people in the UK aim for that near perfect smile. This guide discusses the common options to help you find the right type of brace that would fit your needs and budget.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces have changed so much in the past few years. Brackets are small metallic pieces that stick to your teeth and they can come in a variety of materials, including ceramic, silver, gold and tooth-coloured resin. Wires are usually made of titanium alloy or stainless steel because of these materials’ durability, but they can also be tooth-coloured for aesthetic reasons.

Traditional dental braces could be your most affordable option, depending on the materials used and other factors. Ask your dentist if these types of braces are right for you.

Invisible Braces

One more technology that has been taking the dental world by storm is Invisalign. This type of dental appliance is nearly invisible. Invisalign braces include clear aligners that you can remove when you are eating or drinking. Their effectiveness compares well with that of traditional braces, and while they are removable, patients must commit to wearing them for the most part of the day.

The main selling point is their ‘invisibility’, meaning your friends and family would hardly notice you are wearing Invisalign braces. This option is more expensive mainly because they require plenty of replacements as your teeth gradually moves into place. If you are thinking of getting these innovative dental appliances, you may choose among different Invisalign providers in the UK.

The growing need for a stunning smile means you can expect more people to wear braces in the coming years. With thorough research, you can find the right option. Your dentist can provide more information and answer your questions.
