TYPES OF BRACES
We are pleased to offer several advanced options to create your ideal smile. In the past, there were few options when it came to braces. Now, thanks to leading edge orthodontics, patients have more choices than ever before. Braces are an effective, tried and true way to safely reposition your smile.
Traditional Metal Braces
Your ideal smile is more than just straight teeth. Well aligned teeth are easier to clean and maintain, reducing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease and even tooth loss. When your teeth are perfectly aligned, they fit together better to minimize wear on enamel. Traditional braces are silver colored and highly durable. Treatment time with traditional braces is usually 18 to 24 months.
Clear braces have the same components as traditional braces, except the brackets are clear. They are made of ceramic or high-grade plastic and provide the same function as traditional braces with a heightened aesthetic appeal. Clear brackets present a less noticeable alternative to metal. Clear braces are used for the upper teeth in cases where the complexity of treatment is minimal.
Invisalign & Invisalign Teen
