Clear Fixed Braces for Adults

Achieving a stunning smile – whatever your age - with low visibility ceramic braces

Thistle Dental is the most technically advanced practice in North East Scotland, offering patients high-tech dental and orthodontic care that’s second to none.

The specialist orthodontic team at Thistle Dental uses fixed braces that are attached to your teeth to guide them into a more harmonious, symmetrical position. 

Fixed braces achieve a straighter smile more reliably and accurately than removable appliances, allowing us to improve large and small imperfections – and everything in between! 

Ceramic braces are much less visible than metal brackets. This clear orthodontic solution fit seamlessly into your life straightening your teeth quickly and effectively. 

These exceptionally clear braces are appropriate for nearly every type of orthodontic need and work continuously throughout treatment. They are stain resistant, helping them stay brilliantly clear throughout.

Fixed appliances are attached with adhesive, which is set with a blue light, and the fitting process is totally painless. Treatment usually takes 12 to 18 months.

Making Sure Your New Smile Lasts

We make every attempt to ensure your teeth remain straight, stable and stunning after treatment. It is normal for some minor tooth movement to occur throughout life, which is why we encourage all of our patients to wear retainers. 

You will be fitted with a retainer brace once your orthodontic treatment has finished to ensure their teeth remain in the perfect position. All of our patients are offered a year of supervised retention.
