Many people have crowded or crooked and irregular teeth and are unhappy with their smile. If you are one of those people, Midlands Smile Centres can help. We offer a multitude of different orthodontic treatments from traditional metal braces to invisible braces.
Orthodontic treatment helps straighten teeth by using a brace to move them into a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing position. Generally it is better to choose to have orthodontic treatment during childhood, however, we also offer several treatments that are specifically designed for adults.

How it works
Before an orthodontist can start treatment, a routine full examination is needed to assess your teeth. The examination may also involve taking x-rays and moulds of your teeth.
Sometimes space is needed in your mouth for treatment to work effectively, therefore requiring some of your teeth to be taken out. The orthodontist will discuss what treatment is right for you, when you can start the treatment and how long the process is likely to take.
Orthodontic treatment is carried out using different appliances typically known as braces.
Straightforward treatment usually only requires a removable brace. These braces use gentle pressure which help move the teeth. If your teeth have more complex problems your orthodontist may decide that a fixed brace will be better for you. These braces have brackets and bands which will be temporarily stuck to your teeth and which only an orthodontist can remove.
Damon braces are a new innovative approach to orthodontics. Using self-ligating brackets and shape memory wires, these braces use light pressure to move your teeth. Damon braces can be used for the treatment of complex problems and are generally considered more comfortable than traditional braces. Read more here.
Our skilled orthodontists in Birmingham and Alcester can also advise you about our invisible braces and whether they are right for you. These clear aligners are made specifically for your teeth, gradually shifting your teeth into a more aesthetically pleasing and healthy position. They are also removable making it easier to eat and to clean your teeth.
Six Month Smiles
Midlands Smile Centres also offer cosmetic braces called Six Months Smiles. These braces can straighten your teeth in as little as 6 months. The average being between 4-9 months.
These Six Month Smile braces are tooth-coloured and therefore discrete. They are comfortable to wear as they gradually move your teeth.
