A beautiful smile with trusted, traditional braces
Fixed braces might be the original and oldest style of braces, but recent innovations in their design and construction make them the ideal choice for many patients. Designed for comfort, precision and efficiency, these braces are now far less noticeable than they used to be.
How do traditional metal braces work?
Metal brackets are fixed to each tooth and a wire is passed through them. This applies gentle but effective pressure. Traditional braces require regular checkups to ensure they’re working as intended and to allow Dr Anning to make any required adjustments.
The confidence to flash your smile with tooth-coloured braces
Tooth-coloured braces are colour-matched to your teeth. Whilst they’re not as invisible as clear aligners, they are a lot less noticeable than traditional metal braces. They work in exactly the same way as traditional braces, using metal brackets and a wire to put gentle pressure on your teeth. However, many patients prefer tooth-coloured braces as they feel more confident and less self-conscious wearing braces.
Some consultations require collation of information from other practitioners, additional diagnostic records and/or evaluations undertaken in order to provide you with an in depth orthodontic opinion. In such cases a $250 consultation fee will apply. These could include children under 12, patients referred by their dentist or dental specialist, patients in treatment elsewhere seeking to transfer or those seeking a second opinion.
A free consultation, if applicable, is only offered once. If you fail to attend your free consultation, or cancel at short notice (less than 24 hours before the appointment) a non-refundable $250 charge will be payable prior to scheduling your next appointment.
