Metal braces

Get the straight teeth you’ve always imagined.

Fitted braces are one of the most effective methods of teeth straightening treatment. The most well-known type of fitted braces are metal braces, often known as ‘train tracks’.

What are metal braces?

Metal braces are the traditional method of orthodontic treatment and are usually what people think of when they think of orthodontics. Metal braces use small metal brackets which are attached to the front surface of your teeth, and a soft archwire that threads through these brackets. This archwire has a special shape and by changing the archwire at various stages throughout your treatment your teeth are gently guided into their new position.

Metal braces are the most cost-effective option available and offer fantastic results within 9 to 24 months. Patients can choose coloured elastics to brighten their braces. Fixed metal braces are among the few orthodontic treatments available on the NHS
