Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are still the most common type of braces used. However, they are much more sleek and comfortable than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) to personalize your treatment.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials, which makes them less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one will be able to tell you are wearing Invisalign because the aligners are virtually invisible. The aligners are also removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, and brushing and flossing are a breeze. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Please visit our Invisalign page to learn more about it.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore “invisible” when you smile. Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth. The metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
