Achieving beautiful straight teeth with our team at Platinum Dental Studio has never been easier! At our clinic we offer both clear and metal braces as effective orthodontic solutions for all ages.
Dental braces are used by orthodontists to straighten crooked teeth or correct a misaligned bite. They do so by repositioning the teeth and adjusting your bite, resulting in a beautiful straight smile.
Metal braces vs clear braces
Metal braces are the traditional, metal coloured braces. Clear braces are made from clear plastic, making them more discrete and less noticeable than metal braces.
1. Initial consultation
An initial consultation is essential before starting your treatment. The consultation will involve discussing your treatment goals with your orthodontist who will then assess your teeth to determine if you are a good candidate for braces. If it is determined that braces are suitable for you, your orthodontist will provide a customized treatment plan that will address your concerns.
2. Fitting appointment
During this appointment your braces will be fitted, this appointment will be longer than any future appointment. It involves preparing the surface of your teeth and cementing the brackets and wire in place.
3. Follow up appointments
Every 6-8 weeks you will return to the practice for a braces-check appointment. At these appointments, your progress will be checked and adjustments may be made
4. Deband appointment
This is when your braces will be removed and your custom retainers will be made.
