How to enjoy the benefits of braces without the metallic smile

Braces mean metal, right? Not necessarily. Richmond clinic Sheen Dental offers a large number of orthodontic solutions for adults, without a glint of metal in sight.


Tooth straightening is beneficial to patients of all ages. It helps to improve your oral health, as well as giving you a beautifully aligned smile. We welcome patients of all ages for consultations about aligners and braces at our Richmond clinic.

Straighter teeth are healthier because they are easier to keep clean. This can cut your risk of both gum disease and dental decay, both of which lead to tooth loss.

Richmond braces and aligners

When you come into Sheen Dental in Richmond for an orthodontic consultation, your dentist will perform a complete clinical examination, to diagnose your condition and recommend the best course of treatment.

Depending on your clinical needs, your Richmond dentist may recommend:

Damon clear braces

Damon braces have a unique design that combines tie-less braces with highly advanced arch wires, enabling them to move your teeth both quickly and comfortably. Damon work in up to six months less than standard orthodontic appliances, and the clear versions blend in with your teeth.

Incognito lingual braces

Lingual braces are attached to the rear surfaces of the teeth, meaning nobody will notice them in everyday life. They can correct a wide range of orthodontic issues. At our Richmond dental practice we use the popular Incognito system, which is made from gold alloy thus a good choice if you are allergic to nickel.

Clarity Advanced ceramic braces

Made from clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, Clarity Advanced offer maximum discretion. They can be used to correct a number of different orthodontic complaints subtly and with greater comfort than with standard appliances.


Invisalign is a popular alternative to a fixed appliance at our Richmond dental practice. Treatment involves using a series of clear, removable aligners to progressively adjust the position of your teeth. The number of aligners you will need and your treatment time will depend on the type and amount of correction needed. Dental hygiene is easy to maintain with Invisalign; you just take them out for cleaning.
