Types of Braces

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. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Ceramic (Clear) Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore 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 slightly larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth, rather than on lower teeth.

Invisalign Orthodontic Appliances 
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign because it's virtually invisible!
