Metal braces are an excellent orthodontic option for patients who don’t want to keep track of clear aligners. Conventional metal braces work 24/7 to straighten patients’ smiles quickly and effectively. While metal braces used to be clunky and awkward, today’s metal braces are sleek and far more comfortable to wear. Traditional metal braces can also be used to treat more severe or uncommon orthodontic issues that clear aligners may not be able to.
Ceramic braces use translucent brackets and thin metal wires to appear less noticeable. Our office uses 3M Clarity™ Brackets, which are made to blend in with the teeth and resist staining, so your braces will remain discreet throughout treatment. Ceramic braces are just as durable as metal braces, can straighten teeth just as fast, and our practice offers ceramic braces for the same price as our conventional metal braces!
Lingual braces are very similar to metal braces, except that they are applied to the back of the teeth instead of the front. Patients receive all of the same benefits that metal braces offer, but their treatment is even more discreet than clear aligner therapy, as most people cannot tell that they are wearing braces at all. Lingual braces also offer treatment plans that are just as efficient as metal and ceramic braces.
