Types of Braces

Metal Braces


Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces


Ceramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. 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.



Invisalign aligners are made of durable plastic or acrylic material. They effectively straighten teeth without brackets and wires. Invisalign is customized, comfortable and removable. Ask us if Invisalign aligners are the perfect treatment option for you.
