Types of invisible braces
White ceramic braces
White ceramic braces are made of ceramic and placed on the outer surface of teeth. They work much like metal braces but are less visible. A white coloured wire is also used instead of a grey wire, making the brace even less visible.
Lingual braces are hand-made in Germany (much like that of how a sports car is made). They are customised to fit your specified tooth structure and are usually made either of silver or gold. The braces are fitted on the inside of the teeth so they are pretty much invisible. Dr Stefan Abela is one of the few specialists in the country who has a wealth of knowledge and education in lingual braces. He teaches lingual braces to specialist students.
Invisalign is one of the most modern types of invisible braces. Using revolutionary digital technology your teeth are first scanned Each individual tooth is then moved by an orthodontic technician on a computer screen. Once your final smile has been designed you can see how you look with Invisalign’s remarkable 3D visualisation tool Clincheck©.
By initially creating a digital mould of your mouth, clear braces are then made from plastic, you wear each of these clear braces for approximately 2 weeks and then change them at regular intervals as your teeth move closer to the ideal location. Due to the clear nature of the braces and the fact that they can be removed for eating or occasions where they may prove to be an annoyance, Invisalign are a popular choice for teeth straightening amongst adults.
Dr Stefan Abela is an invisalign gold member due to his wealth of knowledge and experience in the system.
