At Pont Steffan our patients are quite often looking for a way to improve the appearance of their smile by making it straighter. Fixed braces are becoming more and more popular with adults, so if you're looking to improve your smile for your wedding day or just to be able to smile more confidently we can help in a discreet way by using conventional fixed orthodontics with ceramic (white) brackets, or if you prefer the traditional metal brackets, we have those too.

Orthodontic treatments at Pont Steffan are carried out by our Principal dentist Dr Owain Dimmick. Owain has completed training in providing fixed appliances by Wired Orthodontics, and has been fitting cosmetic orthodontics since 2013.

Why Should I Have Orthodontic Treatment?

Many people are unhappy with their smile, whether they have crooked, crowded or gaps between teeth. Orthodontic treatment can address all these issues and straighten your teeth into a better position. Overall this will improve the appearance but could also make them easier to clean properly.

FAQs

Will my teeth stay straight?

After your brace is taken off, we recommend that you wear a retainer. This is because it is normal for minor tooth movements to happen throughout life. Don't worry though because it is very unusual for teeth to alter enough to need more treatment.

Will I need teeth removed?

This is dependant on many variant factors. You might need some teeth taken out to make space but we will always discuss this with you before any treatment commences.

What does it involve?

You will have to have a full examination with Dr Dimmick. He will examine your teeth, take x-rays if needed and then take an 3D intra-oral scan.

Do I need to be a certain age?

Most people associate braces with children and teenagers but adults can have them too! Age isn't as important as having all the necessary teeth already come through.

Will it hurt?

The fitting of the braces is totally painless. It is totally normal to feel some discomfort following the fitting of the braces and wire and then for wire adjustments.

How long will it take?

This varies from patient to patient and it may take anything from a few months to two years.
