Patients wearing clear braces often tell us their friends do not even know they are wearing them. That is because advances in short term orthodontics mean braces can be more discrete than ever before.
Contact us for a free initial consultation and we will be happy to explain your clear braces options and how you can achieve a straighter and more natural looking smile in a surprisingly short time.

Invisalign system straightens your teeth using nearly invisible, removable aligners custom-made specifically for your teeth
Six Month Smiles clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires are barely visible and achieve consistently cosmetic results.
The Inman Aligner system will gently guide your front teeth to an ideal position in a matter of weeks.
It does not matter whether you refer to them as invisible braces or clear braces, we know you want the least inconspicuous method of gaining straighter teeth and we will be glad to steer you towards the treatment that suits you best.
Do not forget that your first consultation here in our Glasgow dentist practice is free. Our friendly staff - several of whom have had invisible braces treatment themselves (ask them!) - will talk you through the various options.
Braces used to be thought of as just for teenagers and school kids. No longer. Increasingly adults are coming to our Glasgow dental practice interested in straightening their teeth or perhaps closing a noticeable gap.
It is not just young adults coming to our door. There is no age limit for clear braces. The more important factors are the condition of your teeth and what sort of treatment you need. That is why we recommend an initial consultation with one of our dentists.
It is certainly true that the rise of clear braces has increased the number of adult coming to get their teeth straightened.
The fact they are more discrete in social situations and at work obviously appeals.
Some adults want braces because they have always had squint or overcrowded teeth and now they feel anxious or uncomfortable.
They may have had orthodontic treatment when they were children but did not stick with the treatment or failed to wear a retainer and the problem has returned.
Now they want straighter or more evenly distributed teeth for cosmetic reasons. They may want a more regular smile before they get married - or to give them fresh confidence when looking for a job.
It is certainly true that teeth can change position as we get older. This might be to do with an injury or a natural occurrence. Then the patient may want their once-straight smile back again.
