Orthodontic Treatments

Invisalign Braces


There is a solution to having straighter teeth without having to wear the traditional unsightly metal braces. Known as invisible orthodontics, this type of treatment offers you the choice of wearing a clear and sometimes removable appliance while straightening and aligning your teeth.

Fixed Metal Braces

Fixed Metal

An effective long-term solution to straightening your teeth and correcting your bite is orthodontics. Orthodontics is a subspecialty in dentistry that focuses on aligning, straightening and crucially matching up the bite for the patients using appropriate orthodontic appliances applying pressure to the teeth to move them into a particular position.

Fixed Ceramic Braces

Fixed Ceramic

A traditional orthodontic appliance made of clear ceramic blocks along with a thin metal wire. The ceramic braces are fitted to the front of the tooth and is a great alternative to standard metal braces.

0% Interest free credit on every treatment

If you are considering dental treatment, but are unsure about the best way to pay for it, we offer 0% payment plans to make the treatment more affordable for you.

Clear Aligners


Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of nearly invisible, removable aligners that are custom-made specifically for your teeth. As you replace each aligner every two weeks, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week, gradually moving towards the projected final position.

Lingual Braces (Incognito)

Braces (Incognito)

Lingual uses brackets positioned on the inside of the mouth to gently move and align the front 4-6 teeth, for those patients where speed and appearance are essential.

Children's Orthodontics

Children's Orthodontics

Childrens orthodontics usually takes place once their adult teeth have fully replaced their milk teeth. At this stage, it ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense.
