Metal braces are an effective way to achieve good results with less financial outlay, and if costs are of concern then they may be the most appropriate option. Metal braces are fitted after an initial consultation with Lesley. One advantage of metal braces is that they are stronger than ceramic braces, which can shatter if they get a good knock. For this reason metal braces make good sense for children. When dealing with situations where the bite has teeth sitting next to the braces, metal braces are better because they produce less wear on natural teeth than ceramic brackets.
Strong and affordable, traditional metal braces provide everything you need to straighten your smile
The Affordable Choice
Metal braces can be a good choice when people are less bothered by the visibility of the braces, and more interested in reducing the total financial outlay. Metal braces are fitted following an initial consultation with Lesley at her Noosa clinic, then the client returns on a regular basis to review progress and make any necessary adjustments. The time required for treatment is usually about 2 years, although this depends on the client. The cost of treatment with metal braces depends on the complexity of the individual case, but is usually between $3,000 and $8,000, depending on individual circumstances. As a Specialist Orthodontist, Dr Short is qualified in accelerated orthodontic techniques that can reduce the time needed for braces to work by up to 66%.
