Orthodontics has evolved rapidly over the past few years, with more and more adults and well as children looking for their own perfect smile.

The NHS no longer pays for all orthodontic treatment and due to changes in government funding only certain people are eligible for braces on the NHS.

The guidelines specify that patients must be under 18 years old and braces can only be fitted for health, not cosmetic reasons. Young people with severe crowding, protruding or buried teeth may be eligible. There may be a waiting list for NHS treatment.

If your child is not eligible for braces on the NHS don’t despair. Our Bronze Range offers an affordable way of contributing to your child’s future success. Please click here to see details of our Bronze Range.
