Braces are small attachments that are bonded individually to your teeth. They can be made from metal or tooth coloured material. Your teeth are gradually moved and straightened by working through a progressive series of wires. Treatment entails a number of stages until your bite is corrected and teeth are aligned. Treatment time will vary depending on your personal situation.
