Achieving stunning smiles with low visibility ceramic braces
The specialist orthodontists at Pure Orthodontics Nottingham use fixed braces that are attached to your teeth to guide them into a more harmonious, symmetrical position. Fixed braces achieve a straighter smile more reliably and accurately than removable appliances, allowing us to improve large and small imperfections – and everything in between.
Ceramic braces are much less visible than metal brackets. We favour Radiance Plus™, a clear orthodontic solution that allows you to confidently live your life while your teeth are being straightened quickly and effectively. These exceptionally clear braces are appropriate for nearly every type of orthodontic need and work continuously throughout treatment. Radiance Plus™ braces are proven to be the clearest of all ceramic braces and the body of the braces also resists stains, helping them stay brilliant throughout treatment.
Fixed appliances are attached with adhesive, which is set with a blue light, and the process is totally painless. Special care is necessary with a fixed appliance to ensure success and you do have to adapt your eating technique. We advise our patients not to eat toffee or chewing gum, or bite into anything hard or large with the front teeth, such as French bread or pizza.
Treatment usually takes 12 to 18 months. Ceramic fixed appliances are a popular choice with adults and are not available on the NHS.
Here at Pure Orthodontics in Nottingham we use Radiance PLUS ™ ceramic brackets from American Orthodontics.
