Metal Braces

colorMetal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most commonly used type of brace. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

clearCeramic braces move teeth just as efficiently as metal braces, except the brackets are clear, so they are less noticeable. They are most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. Ceramic brackets are more fragile than metal ones, so a little more care and caution are advisable.
