Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. We use only the highest quality brackets that are made in the USA. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastic ties for a more unique and colorful smile.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are used mainly on adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. Ceramic brackets are brittle; their delicate nature means that pressure need to be applied slowly thus slightly increasing the treatment time. Ceramic braces are expensive so they tend to be used more on upper teeth than on lower teeth.
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
