Types of Braces



Metal Braces

Metal braces are the traditional type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.  Colored elastic ties can be applied for a more stylish appearance, or to match your mood!  The colors can be changed at every appointment.

Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces offer several benefits for patients. The self-ligation mechanism reduces friction between the wire and brackets, to move teeth faster, and may shorten treatment times.

Clear Braces

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

Gold Braces

Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.


The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation, and a precise and highly detailed treatment plan submitted by the orthodontist, to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult and teen patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
