We understand that each patient is a unique orthodontic case. Some have misalignment and gap issues with their teeth, while others have overcrowded teeth or malocclusion. In our dental practice, we offer our patients a variety of options for their orthodontic treatment, including traditional braces. There are two types of materials that we use for dental braces; ceramic and metal.
As your dental service provider, it’s important that we identify your needs and match them with the appropriate treatment. Let us help you learn more about the different types of braces available in our clinic.
Types of dental braces
Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces in shape and in size. The only difference is that they are white ceramic brackets for a discreet appearance. The brackets are tooth-colored so they blend well with the color of your natural teeth. You also have the option to use tooth-colored wires and orthodontic bands so your braces are less noticeable. We recommend ceramic braces to our patients with mild orthodontic cases.
Metal braces are the traditional style of braces. As the name suggests, metal brackets and archwires are used to guide your teeth into proper alignment and occlusion. We highly recommend metal braces to treat more complex cases including large teeth gaps, misalignment, and malocclusion.
