Types of Braces

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

ceramic braces

By far our most popular style, ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are visually less prominent, and tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth. We offer clear braces at no extra cost to our patients.

Traditional Metal 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.


Clear Aligners

Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
