Types of Braces


Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.


Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.



The Invisalign® System is a product that offers a non-traditional way of moving teeth. A series of clear aligners, which are like custom mouth guards, slowly nudge the teeth into a better alignment. Click here for more information.
