Mini Braces

Enhance the Look of Your Teeth Without Bulky Metal

At the forefront of orthodontics, mini braces have revolutionised our dental treatment. They are highly accurate, and their unique design means you can eat, drink, and talk normally. With these on your teeth, you can stop hiding your misaligned teeth and confidently smile. Their size means you can be less conspicuous too. Don’t let a crooked smile spoil your important moments!

As the name suggests, mini braces are smaller than traditional braces and are made of high-quality material. This gives them the strength to straighten your teeth, while their more minor appearance brings a refined look to your smile. Our revolutionary mini braces can solve minor corrections at the front of the mouth — including gaps, bad bites, and overlapped teeth.

How does this treatment work?

Skip the traditional braces with a more aesthetically pleasing look and feel — the mini braces!

Key features and benefits

Mini-Braces help you achieve the best smile possible in the least amount of time!


Mini braces are generally less expensive than traditional braces or aligners due to shorter treatment times.


They are more comfortable. Since the brackets are not as large as traditional braces, there is less material present that could irritate the gums and jaw.

Different colours

Teens love the ability to change the colours of the ligature ties that go around the brackets. Many want to add a personal touch to their braces.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below you’ll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about mini braces.

Patients say it takes up to a few weeks to get used to mini braces. However, for most patients, it happens in a matter of days.

Mini braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Made of high-grade stainless steel, mini metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. Mini braces do not go around the tooth so you can avoid cavities and other dental problems associated with that type of braces.

It takes some getting used to because the brackets are fitted closer to the tongue. But once you have adjusted, you can certainly eat most foods while avoiding hard, sticky, and crunchy ones.

Mini braces start at £1,200 to £3,000. You can, however, talk to a Park Orthodontist about plans and financing.

Start by holding the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle and gently brushing along the gum line. Next, shift the angle of the toothbrush so that you can carefully brush the tops of your brackets. Then, reposition the toothbrush so you can brush under the brackets and wire. Be sure to clean each tooth.

Everyone has a different set of teeth and will have different orthodontic needs. Typically, between 6 and 30 months is considered a standard treatment.

To ensure your teeth alignment progresses well, you need to see your orthodontist every 6 to 8 weeks for adjustments.

It may take some getting used to, but braces should not stop you from participating in school activities such as singing or playing an instrument. If you participate in sports, you should wear a mouthguard.

There's no set "best" age to get mini braces. For most kids, the best time for mini braces is generally between ages 10 and 14, when a child's mouth and head are still growing, and the permanent teeth are erupting. The exact time depends on growth and how quickly a child's adult teeth come in. However, mini braces can still be effective in older teenagers and adults.

Many adults get mini braces because they couldn't afford them as a kid and now can or because their teeth have shifted with age. Even as an adult, getting mini braces can give you decades of more attractive straight teeth and correct serious structural problems, so many people see them as a worthwhile investment.
