Orthodontic braces help to straighten teeth helping you to smile with confidence.


If you would you like straighter teeth, or need to correct a misaligned bite, braces can help to reposition your teeth while adjusting your bite, creating a beautifully straight smile.

Braces are the most familiar Orthodontic method to straightening teeth, utilising arch wires and brackets along with modern dental materials.

All our BEC Dental clinics can provide braces without the need to go elsewhere. Braces work by placing pressure on your teeth, moving them into a more desired position. Our skilled clinicians will adjust your braces to apply light pressure as the teeth move into their ideal position. Modern braces are smaller in size, making the treatment more comfortable.


The two most common types of braces include:

  1. Metal
  2. Ceramic

Metal Braces

Metal braces are smaller and less noticeable these days, while also being the most affordable. Also, who doesn’t love the option of fun-coloured bands which decorate the braces, while holding the very fine wires in place? 

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are tooth-coloured or clear to better blend in with the shade of your teeth. A great option for fast results while being  less visible than metal braces.

Braces are used for people of all ages and for many different types of tooth realignment. From rectifying a structural (functional) issue to purely cosmetic purposes, braces can improve your overall oral health and are a tried and proven solution.

Braces can correct a variety of orthodontic concerns, including:

  • Misaligned or crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite and underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Misaligned jaw position
  • Move impacted teeth into alignment
