Braces Services at Every Smile Dentistry in Port Elizabeth

At Every Smile Dentistry, we understand the importance of a confident smile. 

That’s why we offer comprehensive braces services to help our patients achieve straighter teeth and improved oral health. 

Whether you’re a child, teenager, or adult, our expert orthodontists are here to guide you through your braces journey with personalized care and state-of-the-art treatments.

Types of Braces

We provide a variety of braces options tailored to suit the unique needs of each patient:

  • Traditional metal braces: These are the most common type of braces and consist of metal brackets that are bonded to the front of the teeth and connected with a wire. Metal braces are strong and effective, but they are also the most visible.
  • Ceramic braces: These are similar to traditional metal braces, but the brackets are made of a tooth-coloured or clear material that is less noticeable. Ceramic braces are less visible than metal braces, but they may be more fragile and may require more frequent adjustments.
  • Clear aligners: Clear aligners are a newer option that consists of a series of custom-made, transparent plastic trays that fit over the teeth. Clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. However, they may not be suitable for more severe misalignment cases.

Who Needs Dental Braces?

Braces aren’t just for cosmetic purposes; they can address various dental issues, including:

  • Misaligned or crooked teeth
  • Overbite, underbite, or crossbite
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Dental problems like TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, or gum disease

Our experienced dental team will assess your needs during a consultation to determine if braces are the right solution for you.


Before starting your braces journey, we’ll conduct a thorough examination, including X-rays and impressions, to customize your treatment plan. 

Good oral hygiene is crucial, so we’ll provide guidance on maintaining your dental health throughout your braces treatment.


Getting braces is a step-by-step process:

  1. Cleaning and Preparation: Before the braces application, our orthodontic team ensures your teeth are clean and dry. Thorough cleaning removes any plaque or debris, creating an optimal surface for the bonding process.
  2. Placement of Brackets: Using a special adhesive, we carefully affix small brackets to the front surface of each tooth. The placement of these brackets follows a detailed treatment plan, meticulously crafted to address your specific dental needs. Each bracket serves as an anchor point for the wires that will guide your teeth into alignment.
  3. Selection of Wires: Once the brackets are in place, our orthodontist selects the appropriate wires for your treatment. These wires come in various sizes and materials, each exerting specific forces to move your teeth gradually. Our goal is to achieve optimal results with minimal discomfort, so we customize the wire selection to suit your unique situation.
  4. Attachment of Wires: With the brackets securely attached, the orthodontist threads the selected wire through them. The wire is then secured in place using elastic bands or other mechanisms. This wire serves as the main driver of tooth movement, applying gentle pressure to guide each tooth into its desired position over time.
  5. Adjustments and Progress Monitoring: Throughout your braces journey, regular adjustments are necessary to maintain progress and ensure optimal tooth movement. During these appointments, our orthodontic team may tighten the wires, replace elastic bands, or make other modifications to fine-tune your treatment plan. These adjustments are crucial for achieving the desired alignment and bite correction.

Benefits of Braces

Braces offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved oral health and easier cleaning
  • Correction of bite issues for enhanced comfort and function
  • Boosted confidence with a straighter, more attractive smile
  • Prevention of future dental problems
  • Long-lasting results with proper care and maintenance


Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential during and after braces treatment. We’ll provide you with comprehensive aftercare instructions, including proper brushing and flossing techniques and guidance on wearing retainers.

The staff is sooo friendly. I have a big fear when it comes to dentists, but my dentist calmed me down so well and talked me through what she was going to do and what she was doing while busy. I had an infected tooth that she extracted. I felt no pain and it was over within seconds. I will definitely go back.

The place is overall beautiful and the reception guys are too friendly. My only issue was the doctor. 1st she didn’t greet or introduce herself I had to ask the assistant what the Doctors name was. Also she was not patient with my son and seemed irritated most of the time. I however have to give thanks to Musa who was the assistant that guy is amazing and super patient he made my son super comfortable and explained every process to me and my son.
