The Most Common Dental Braces

Traditional Metal Braces

Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth by 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 (Ceramic) Braces

While they are visually less prominent, they require more attention to oral hygiene because ceramic braces are larger and more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth rather than on lower teeth.

Clear Aligner Trays

There’s never been a better time to straighten your teeth with the most advanced clear aligner in the world. Our office is proud to be a provider of clear aligners, which give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Clear Aligners

Plus, this helps to make brushing and flossing less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and contain no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.

Benefits of Braces
