Cosmetic Braces

In terms of aesthetics, orthodontics has travelled light years since the days of fixed braces with their conspicuous steel wires and brackets.

You may already have heard about Invisalign® – the world’s most popular ‘invisible’ straightener which uses a series of replacement aligners to bring teeth gradually closer to their perfect position.

But did you know Invisalign® is just one from a whole range of discrete and invisible orthodontics?

Dental professionals call these cosmetic braces. Together, they are a versatile, effective treatment for spacing issues, misalignment, malocclusion, underbites, overbites and more.

Mark works closely with orthodontists to provide a range of cosmetic braces including Six Month Smiles, C-Fast, Lingual and Damon braces

Lingual Braces and Composite Bonding


Gabrielle complained her smile had been the source of years of unhappiness.

Several techniques combined to produce the makeover. First, I used lingual braces to improve alignment and address some bite issues that could have caused further problems in the future if not taken care of.

I then improved Gabrielle’s gum line with a mini gum lift and made further aesthetic improvements with crowns and veneers. Whitening was the finishing touch.

Gabrielle said the smile makeover gave her a renewed feeling of confidence.

Incognito™ Braces

Incognito™ braces combine all that is great about traditional fixed braces with discrete looks to challenge even the best clear removable aligners.

The concept is simple but revolutionary. Incognito™ braces use low-profile brackets and wires fixed behind the teeth for complete straightening discretion.

Incognito™ are effective in correcting a wide range of orthodontic issues from the simple to the complex. They are recognised for producing relatively rapid results, with a much shorter treatment time than conventional front-fixed braces.

Damon™ Braces

Of all cosmetic braces, Damon™ is perhaps the closest in form and function to the traditional fixed braces you may be familiar with.

However, the system replaces traditional steel components with smaller, lower profile and tooth-coloured brackets.

But aesthetics aren’t the only advantage of Damon™ braces.

Advanced self-ligating (self-tightening) technology results in a more comfortable straightening experience, requiring fewer maintenance appointments.

Invisalign® & Invisalign® Teen

It’s impossible to talk about cosmetic braces without mentioning Invisalign®.

The discrete removable aligner caused a sensation when it first came to market in the US in 1998 and has remained the market leader for secret straightening ever since.

Invisalign® is perfect for correcting mild to moderate orthodontic issues such as malocclusion, crowding and uneven spacing.

Patients love being able to remove Invisalign® aligners whenever busy lifestyles dictate.
