Fixed Braces

Fixed braces are a great option for cases in which patients have more complex orthodontic needs or who feel they may not commit well to a removable brace system such as Invisalign.

All of our fixed brace treatments are led by specialist orthodonist, Dr Stephan Lam.

Please note, fixed orthodontic treatments are only available from our London Knightsbridge Clinic currently.

About Fixed Braces

Fixed braces come in several forms.

Traditionally metal brackets are placed on the front surface of the teeth however other options exist such as ceramic brackets which are tooth coloured and therefore less noticeable.

If you want maximum digression lingual  braces are available which are when the brackets are placed on the inside over the teeth.

  • Most orthodontic treatments take between 12-18 months.

    Depending on the severity of the case it may take longer.

  • Yes you can have ceramic brackets instead of metal.

    The ceramic brackets and wires blend in better with the teeth in comparison to metal brackets.

  • Lingual braces are fixed braces that are placed on the inside of the teeth so they cannot be seen from the front view.

    They are the most discreet of all the fixed brace options.

  • Neither option is necessarily better than the other. Fixed braces may be more suited to certain cases where Invisalign may struggle and hence it would be during your consultation where one of our dentists can discuss the options and explain which one would work best for you.

  • The time taken for the treatment is generally the same between both fixed braces and Invisalign.

  • Yes many patients opt to have composite bonding treatments after braces. This is always done once the final portion of the teeth has been achieved.
