Types of Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. Made from high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of customizing your look by adding colored elastics for a colorful smile that matches your personality.
Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. They are perfect for patients looking for a more discrete look during treatment.
Clear aligners are a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adults and teens with certain orthodontic bite problems. Want to know if you are a candidate for clear aligners? Give us a call and we'll schedule your complimentary exam!
