Have you ever wondered if braces could help your smile? If you are unsatisfied with your smile, braces can transform your teeth and give bracesyou a smile you will love. Braces straighten crooked teeth, close gaps between teeth, and realign teeth that are out of place. At Cumberland Dental, Dr. Jack Gaffey and Dr. Angela Gaffey are your dentists for braces in Adelaide, SA.

Types of Braces

When it comes to braces, there are several options to choose from. The type of braces used will depend on various factors, such as whether the braces are for an adolescent or an adult. Whatever type of braces is selected, they are all effective methods for realigning and straightening teeth. Some of the different types of braces include traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and white resin braces. Cumberland Dental is excited to also offer Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, and white braces all utilize brackets and wires to straighten teeth. The brackets are affixed to the teeth with a dental adhesive and remain in place until a dentist or an orthodontist removes them. Both ceramic and white braces offer a distinct advantage over traditional metal braces as they are much less conspicuous. The brackets for ceramic braces are less noticeable because they blend in with the teeth. 

Invisalign is an exciting alternative to more traditional types of braces. With Invisalign, there are no hard brackets or wires. Instead, clear aligner trays made of a flexible plastic material are used to straighten the teeth. The aligner trays are comfortable and can be easily removed to eat or to brush and floss the teeth.

Six Month Smiles is another innovative method for straightening teeth. Like other types of braces, brackets and wires are used to straighten the teeth with Six Month Smiles. The brackets and wires are clear and readily blend in so they are barely noticeable. Further, the dentist can straighten your smile in just six months, which is significantly faster than other types of braces in Adelaide.

If you want to achieve a straighter smile, braces can help. An experienced dentist can help you select the right type of braces to suit your needs. For braces in Adelaide,  schedule an appointment with Dr. Jack Gaffey or Dr. Angela Gaffey by calling Cumberland Dental in Cumberland Park, SA at (08) 8271 6233.
