Orthodontic treatment with fixed braces bonded to the teeth is mainly carried out in children with metal braces made of stainless steel.
All orthodontic problems can be carried out with metal braces and their only disadvantage is that they are visible on the front of the teeth.
Most children and many adults are not concerned about the appearance of braces on their teeth and many actually show them off by having coloured elastics placed.
Please contact Anna Gibilaro for more information about metal brace treatments available at her London practice.
Metal braces can be gold plated. Some people prefer the appearance of gold to steel as it appears softer and shows less.
Gold braces work in exactly the same way and conventional steel braces.
