Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.

Lingual

Lingual braces are the discreet form of braces which adhere to the inner surfaces of the teeth, rather than the external surface of the teeth as with conventional braces.  As such, Lingual braces are not visible from the outside of the teeth, in effect making them the most "invisible" orthodontic treatment option available to straighten teeth. Not every patient is a candidate for Lingual braces and suitability will need to be determined by the Orthodontist.

Invisalign®

The Invisalign System is 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 adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
