Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, ceramic braces are larger and require more attention to oral hygiene. Ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper-front teeth than on lower teeth. We offer ceramic braces at the same low price as metal braces.
Clarity™ braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Made from a hard ceramic material, these braces won’t stain or discolor. With the same performance as metal braces, many patients are now choosing the clear option—Clarity!
Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.
