Orthodontics (straightening teeth) is the best way of correcting the position of crooked teeth. Moving your teeth, rather than adjusting them, produces a smile which, with the appropriate care, will last a lifetime. Unfortunately, many people have the impression that braces look like a row of train tracks, with modern techniques this is no longer true.
On your consultation we will talk about your aims for treatment, assess your mouth and then discuss the options that are available to you.
Our aim is always to give you the best advice so you can make an informed decision about your treatment. Once you know all your options we will choose the correct path that is right for you.
With so many different options around it’s easy to get confused over which option is the best one for you.
Ultimately the best option by far is a brace that is glued to your teeth allowing full control over the movement of your teeth. They undoubtedly provide the best end result, usually in the most cost effective way.
If you want something that ‘looks’ better you need to sacrifice the end result a little. Invisalign and Six month smiles are both valid techniques but they do not provide the control or the end result that a conventional brace does.
In our experience all you will care about once you start brace treatment is how the end result will look. You won’t care about the brace itself, just how effective it is in getting the job done.
Some braces are marketed as being ‘Faster’ than other types of brace. Sadly this is not true and you are usually accepting a poorer end result in return for not having the braces on for longer.
Teeth move at a set speed and the only thing that ‘speeds it up’ is good planning and good treatment.
There are lots of different brace options and bespoke treatments out there and the main question every patient wants answered is ‘how much do braces cost?’. On your first consultation, we will help you choose the best option available and then we can provide an accurate quotation.
To help make the cost of braces more affordable, we offer a range of interest-free finance options, which allow you to spread the cost of your treatment over up to 36 months – Click here to find out more about our finance option.
When you come in for your first consultation you’ll be given a breakdown of all of the different finance options available to you, ensuring you have everything you need to make an informed decision. And if you have any questions not answered here, please get in touch – we’re always happy to help.
At Spires Dental we are upfront about the costs and the quotation we provide for your braces will include everything you need to straighten your smile:
At Spires Dental Clinic we are passionate about giving you the best possible smile. Stuart has completed numerous courses in both brace treatment and other treatment modalities to ensure that you get the best of both worlds. We not only offer short term solutions to align teeth in 6-9 months but also longer term treatment too- this means we can pick the correct path for you rather than pigeon holing you into one particular system.
Our aim is to assess each of our clients as an individual, and then put a plan in place so you have the smile you are happy with. You’ll be informed of all the pros and cons and be left alone to make a choice about what is right for you. To help in this process, following your consultation, we will send out a report bespoke to you about what options you have open to you and the costs involved. All our brace packages include cosmetic enhancements such as tooth whitening and reshaping techniques to ensure that you have a smile you are happy with.
