Fixed Braces to Straighten Teeth

Fixed metal braces, also known as ‘train tracks’, are the traditional braces you see used by our specialist team. However, we also offer a range of other fixed brace options for adults, teenagers and children.

The Benefits

Fixed Braces



Some orthodontic treatment programmes are only suitable for certain types of malocclusion. However, fixed braces are suitable for everyone.



Traditional fixed braces are available on the NHS for people under the age of 18 and can also be a more affordable choice for adults.



Traditional fixed braces are incredibly effective and can address the most complex of cases.

Mini Braces

Mini braces are an ideal way of correcting tooth irregularities in a short time. The brace is bonded to the six front teeth and can be made in a discrete tooth-coloured material or original steel.  Perfect for that minor tooth- adjustment for big occasions.

Tooth Coloured Braces

Tooth coloured braces are a popular choice to align teeth and correct the bite whilst being discrete.

Silver Braces

These traditional braces are still a popular choice, being used still for tooth corrections.  Patient’s enjoy selecting a colour to style their brace with!
