Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces use high-grade, stainless steel brackets and archwires to align the bite and shift the teeth into a healthy, beautiful alignment. These braces are a popular choice for children, teens and adults and are effective for treating a wide variety of complex orthodontic conditions.

Patients who choose braces can pick from a number of different colored rubber bands to add some spunk to their smile or opt for a sleek, discrete look—whatever your style is, you can design your smile the way you want!

Metal braces can treat mild to severe cases of crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and misaligned bites (overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite).

 

Ceramic Clear Braces

Ceramic braces are specially designed to ensure durability and comfort!

Ceramic clear braces are ideal for teens or adults who want a beautiful smile without the appearance of metal braces. These clear braces use ceramic brackets, high-grade metal wires, and clear rubber bands to create a less noticeable appearance than metal braces.

Ceramic braces are specially designed to ensure durability and comfort! The high-quality materials used in these braces don’t irritate the gums, and the ceramic brackets are rounded to minimize discomfort from sharp corners. They are also stain-resistant, so they won’t become yellow or discolored during your treatment!
