Dental Braces

Dentist Braces in Lower Hutt, NZ

Are you unsatisfied with your smile? Are your teeth crowded, misaligned and causing some problems during your everyday life? If you struggle with any of these symptoms, dental braces can offer an excellent solution!


Braces Defined

Made of brackets, small wires, and rubber bands, traditional metal braces stick to the front of your teeth with a glue-like dental bond.

Braces have many benefits, including:

  • aligning and straightening crooked teeth
  • decreasing the likelihood of tooth decomposition
  • alleviating stress on the jaw
  • fixing an underbite or an overbite
  • and giving you a great smile.

Your Braces, Your Choice

Our modern technology offers you several options for braces. You can choose traditional aluminium braces, ceramic braces that better match your teeth, or “lingual” braces that attach to the back of your teeth, facing your tongue. With these endless options, you are sure to find a type that works well for your needs!

What to Expect

At Central Hutt Dental, we have several years of experience providing solutions with dental braces to our clients. Here is what you can expect when you come for an appointment at our dental clinic:


Visit One: Consultation

Our dentists will look at the alignment of your teeth, your bite, jaw and any other features. We perform a full examination of your oral health and will discuss treatment options along with costs.

Visit Two: X-Rays

Your second appointment involves getting the necessary data to provide you with the greatest solution. We take x-rays, impressions, and photos of your teeth to create a treatment plan that we will discuss during the appointment.

Visit Three: Applying New Braces

After the treatment decision has been made, we will schedule an appointment a few weeks out to fit the braces. This can take anywhere between 40 to 60 minutes.

After Braces Installation

You may have some discomfort for 2-3 days after you get your braces put on, and you will likely experience teeth sensitivity when chewing. Try eating soft foods, which will eliminate further pain. Remember that brushing your teeth with braces is crucial to ensuring that the plaque stays out of your braces.
