TRADITIONAL AND CLEAR BRACES


Traditional metal braces

Traditional metal braces are still the most common appliance used to straighten teeth. As the technology continues to improve, they remain the most accurate and reliable option. They are made out of high quality stainless steel, and colored rings can be used to customize and change the color throughout treatment.

Clear ceramic Braces

Clear ceramic braces are less visible and offer an esthetic alternative to metal braces.  They are more commonly used with adult treatment and minor tooth movement corrections. Clear ceramic braces are more brittle than metal and slightly larger in size, so if chosen, they are usually only placed on upper teeth.
