Metal & Coloured Braces

Transform Your Smile with Confidence

Fixed braces, also known as ‘train track’ braces, are the most common orthodontic treatment option. This system utilises small metal brackets and wires to gently shift your teeth into perfect alignment.

At Balbriggan Braces, we believe that metal braces offer the most effective and precise method for achieving your desired results.

You will be given other options and the cost of each one at your Free Consultation.

Key Features of Metal Braces

Effectiveness: Most orthodontists consider metal braces to be the gold standard for orthodontic treatment due to their effectiveness in correcting a wide range of dental issues.

Small Brackets: Our metal brackets are designed to be very small, making them less awkward and easier to clean compared to older models.

Coloured Braces: Patients have the option to add a fun twist to their treatment by choosing coloured elastics for their braces. These coloured elastics are changed at each visit, allowing patients to experiment with different colours throughout their treatment.

Procedure for Metal Braces

During your initial consultation, our experienced orthodontists will assess your dental needs and discuss the best treatment option for you. The process of getting metal braces involves the following steps:

  1. Placement of Brackets: Small metal brackets are bonded to the front surface of your teeth using a special adhesive.
  2. Installation of Wires: Flexible wires are threaded through the brackets and adjusted periodically to gradually shift your teeth into the desired position.
  3. Coloured Elastics: Patients can choose coloured elastics to be placed around their brackets for a personalised touch.

What are the Treatment Costs for Metal Braces?

We offer flexible payment plans to make orthodontic treatment more accessible. For example, for a standard upper and lower metal braces case costs €3,650:

  • €800 is payable over the first two visits following your free initial consultation.
  • The remainder is divided into 18 or 24 monthly instalments, depending on the treatment duration, equating to €158 or €118 per month.
  • Additionally, 20% of the total cost (€730) can be claimed back from revenue using a Med 2 form if someone in the household is paying tax on earnings.
