Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Iconix Aesthetic Braces

Private patients also have the option of choosing white gold coloured brackets, which blend in well with the teeth and are a little less obvious that traditional metallic braces. These brackets truly offer the best of both worlds – the durability of stainless steel and the aesthetics of “white” gold.

A unique proprietary ion-implementation process ensures these brackets will stay retain their “champagne” colour for the duration of treatment.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces have brackets made of porcelain that can match the colour of the teeth. Essentially they work in the same way as metallic fixed braces but are less visible. These braces are more often used on upper teeth than lowers and can give excellent results. A variety of different ceramic braces are used in the Exeter Orthodontic Practice but these braces are not available on the NHS.
