Traditional Metal Braces - Metal braces are the most common type of braces used in our practice because they are remarkably effective. However, unlike earlier metal braces, the Metal Braces we use today offer a low-profile approach that enhances both aesthetics and patient comfort. Made of nickel-free high-grade steel, today’s metal braces are much smaller than those in the past. We also offer a variety of colored elastics which may be changed at most appointments.
Soft Champagne Braces - Champagne-colored brackets are made of stainless-steel metal and ceramic, which gives them a beautiful champagne-color finish. Because of their light and attractive champagne color, they appear brighter, smaller, and less noticeable. Soft Champagne Braces work just like any other braces, but they are more appealing and aesthetic. If you’re worried that getting traditional metal braces will ruin your look and style, Soft Champagne Braces are a great choice.
Ceramic Braces - Ceramic braces work just like traditional silver braces, however, they are made of a tooth-colored ceramic material and are nearly invisible. Ceramic Braces offer the ultimate combination of aesthetics and performance to our patients. They are ultra-small translucent brackets, made of an innovative ceramic material for an attractive appearance. They are designed to blend with your natural tooth color and are resistant to staining and discoloration throughout treatment. Ceramic Braces also have dome-shaped design to aid in patient comfort.
Clear Aligners - Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that straightens teeth without the use of metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear trays that cover your teeth and gently push them into the proper position over time. Because they are clear and can be taken off, they are less noticeable than traditional braces. With Invisalign clear aligners there are no metal brackets or wires to detract from your smile while undergoing treatment. Invisalign clear aligners are made from BPA-free plastic, and they are often more comfortable than traditional silver braces.
