When your teeth are crooked, crowded, or overlapping, it can make social situations where you are expected to smile and be engaging in a crowd seem even more awkward. However, the attractive, straight smile you have always desired is actually possible with traditional braces in Hamilton at Eastgate Dental Centre. You are never too young or too old to get braces, as we have successfully treated patients of all ages. Our wide selection of traditional braces includes:
If you are worried about your appearance with braces, ceramic braces are an excellent choice because the quasi-translucent appearance of the brackets allows them to blend in with the natural colour of your teeth. Ceramic braces are also extremely durable and have a high resistance to chipping and other types of damage. Ceramic braces also require fewer adjustments than Invisalign® and these braces have been known to successfully treat more severe cases of crowded or gapped teeth.
While these braces have a similar appearance to traditional metal braces, the self-ligating variety do not require frequent visits for tightening, as the spring-loaded bracket tightens itself while maintaining pressure on the arch-wire.
