Fixed Braces

Welcome to St Edward Street Dental Practice, where we believe that every smile is unique and deserving of the best care. Our commitment to providing top-quality orthodontic solutions in Leek extends to our range of fixed braces, including traditional metal braces and discreet clear braces.

Metal Braces & Clear Braces

Traditional metal braces have been a trusted method for straightening teeth for decades. Comprising high-quality stainless steel, these braces are robust and efficient in addressing a variety of orthodontic issues. Their durability and reliability make them an excellent choice for patients seeking a cost-effective yet highly effective solution for teeth alignment.

For those who prefer a more discreet option, our fixed clear braces provide an aesthetic alternative without compromising on effectiveness. Clear braces use transparent or tooth-colored brackets and wires, blending seamlessly with your natural teeth. This makes them an ideal choice for individuals who wish to undergo orthodontic treatment with minimal visibility.
