What are braces?

Braces are dental devices used to align teeth correctly so that patients get beautiful smiles, comfortable bites and clear speech. The dental speciality that covers braces is called orthodontics.

What types of braces are available?

Braces are structural or cosmetic. Structural braces are fitted for children while cosmetic braces are placed for adults and adolescents. Braces may be fixed or removable. Structural or traditional braces are made of stainless steel. Cosmetic braces are made of clear ceramic material or clear plastic. Some braces are self-ligating, that is, they use a slide mechanism rather than elastic bands to connect to the dental archwire. Lingual braces are metal braces placed on the inner surface of teeth. This type of brace is not visible and are preferred by patients requiring cosmetic braces.

How long do you have to wear braces for?

The length of orthodontic treatment depends on the needs and orthodontic problems of each individual patient. Treatments for adults may take a longer time. On average, patients need to wear braces for about 2 years and then they need to wear a retainer to maintain the corrected position of teeth. For some adults treatment may take about 3 years.

How are braces installed on teeth?

For fixed braces, the orthodontist dries the teeth and places glue or bonding cement on the braces. The braces are placed on teeth and a UV light is shone on them to cure the glue or cement. For removable braces, an impression of the teeth is taken and a technician makes the removable brace consisting of a plastic plate and wires. The brace is then fitted on teeth.

How do braces work on teeth?

Braces exert a steady pressure on teeth. The pressure is periodically adjusted as needed by the orthodontist. Eventually the pressure exerted by braces corrects the alignment of teeth.

Do braces hurt?

Braces are uncomfortable when first placed on teeth. Patients experience soreness and need to get used to the pressure exerted on the teeth by braces. Patients normally get used to braces within a month.

Corne Smith Dentistry

087 550 2208 Corner of Campground road and Main road, Newlands, Cape town, 7700
Rating from 15 Reviews OutstandingPaul, London, 24 Mar 15

I discovered this practice three years ago and two of us have been visiting regularly each time we are in Cape Town. The facilities, staff and overall care have been outstanding, far outclassing anything I have experienced in the UK. The new technology on offer is astonishing and makes a genuinely substantial difference to treatments. Above all, Dr Corne Smith is understanding, patient, efficient, completely confidence inspiring and, I believe, utterly dedicated to performing the best service possible. When you are under stress in the chair, all this work by her and her team serves to relax you, reassure you and ensure that your treatment is carried out painlessly. I have had not one reason to doubt this practice since using it and hope very much to continue to do so for many years to come. What a pleasure to be able to recommend someone/this practice without hesitation.

Rating from 5 Reviews Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinicEthne, South Africa, 23 Dec 16

I came to the clinic as they were able to offer me the best price for the treatment I was looking for. The clinic itself is beautiful, professional, clean and comfortable. I absolutely got good value from my treatment here, there were additional add ons to the prices, but I was made fully aware of all of these and was happy to pay. I've booked a follow up appointment in the new year. Everything was perfectly explained, you can trust this clinic.

Rating from 1 Review All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 Aug 18

I made an appointment for dentures at Long Beach. I’m about halfway through the process now and it’ll be another four months before everything’s complete. I’m not sure if I got a fair price for the dentures. I didn’t shop around before choosing this clinic. I went with them because it was conveniently located. There was considerable pain involved because we extracted 10 teeth at once. I was given pain medication and had follow-up visits afterwards. My dentist explained everything in detail. As we went along, she told me what she was doing and also why she was doing it. All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decision. Overall, I was treated quite well. Everyone is so friendly. The clinic is also quite nice.

20 Kloof Street, Rozenhof Court, Gardens, Cape Town, 8001
Rating from 3 Reviews It was the quickest and most pain free dental procedure I've ever hadAnonymous, South Africa, 02 Dec 16

I chose to come to this clinic after I had a part of my tooth fall off, Dr JJ was the only clinic available to take me at short notice. The clinic itself is lovely. It's very well decorated and clean. The staff are very friendly and put you at ease. The treatment I got was good value, I had my tooth filled to restore it before it had broken. It was the quickest and most painfree dental procedure I've ever had.

Dental Save - Save your Smile

unit 3 First floor Horizan Bay, Blouberg Road, Cape Town
Rating from 3 Reviews There were no additional costs. I think they’re very goodZee, South Africa, 16 Jul 18

I wanted adult braces and opted for this clinic. Not only were they close to home, but the staff and doctors were so friendly and managed to help me at the very first appointment. It’s only been two months since we fitted the braces, but already I’m seeing results. We’re currently doing the alignment and I’m noticing a big difference in my smile. Witnessing this change is simply amazing. Prior to the appointment, they quoted me a price and this is exactly what I ended up paying. There were no additional costs. I think they’re very good, but I can’t give them the full 5/5 as I still have 22 months to go before I see the final outcome.

Rating from 14 Reviews I will definitely recommend themAndrea, South Africa, 07 Nov 16

I went for a second opinion on getting my wisdom teeth removed. 2 impacted and 2 regular. Check-in was very friendly, I didn't wait longer than the appointment scheduled time and the dentist were also very friendly. They explained in an easy to follow manner and gave me all the options I had to move forward along with booklets to read at home. I will definitely recommend them.

The Dental Practice at the Waterfront

Suite 7110 Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, Cape Town, 8000
Rating from 2 Reviews Made me feel at ease instantlyRay, UK, 17 Nov 15

Teeth cleaning & whitening. I would highly recommend this practice for the treatment I received and excellent value for money particularly as the sterling to rand exchange rate is so good. As I booked my appointment before departing the UK this worked in brilliantly with our holiday I chose this clinic because many years ago whilst working in Cape Town, I and a few colleagues had some dental work done at the clinics previous location, all were very satisfied. Although I visit my local dentist regularly I am still always apprehensive when I visited this clinic the practitioners made me feel at ease immediately
