Types of Braces

There are 3 main types of braces:  Metal Braces, Clear Ceramic Braces and Invisalign
Metal Braces
Ceramic Clear Braces
Invisalign

These are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable than ever before. We have 2 types of metal - a cosmetic less visible metal and the traditional metal braces.  With metal braces, you have the option of adding colors and glow in the dark elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.  

Ceramic braces are less visible on your teeth than metal braces.  While they are visually less noticeable, the are slightly larger and can be less comfortable.  

Invisalign is a series of invisible, removable trays that straighten your teeth like braces.  Brushing and flossing are much easier.  Aligners do require more attention since they need to be removed when eating.
