Metal braces are the most popular braces option in orthodontics. Metal braces are gently glued to you or your child’s teeth with the same material your dentist uses for tooth-colored fillings. Metal braces are attached to wires with rubber or stainless steel rings (ties) that come in a variety of colors! Feel free to accessorize your smile with colors to match your favorite sports team, holiday, or even outfit for a big day! Metal braces are safe, proven effective, and can be used to fix all bite problems.
Ceramic braces (also known as clear braces) are a very popular option for adult and teen patients. Ceramic braces are clear and blend in with your natural teeth and smile so many people won’t even realize you are even wearing braces! Ceramic braces work just like traditional or metal braces and can be used to correct nearly all bite problems.
