Metal Braces
Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces
Ceramic braces are an option for people who want the color of their braces to more closely match their teeth. A drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile and the clear elastic ties used to engage the arch wires can discolor between orthodontic visits. Ceramic braces are also larger than the metal braces that we use.

Gold Braces
Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24 karat gold. They are an attractive option for patients of all ages.

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. It is a requirement that all of the adult teeth be completely erupted for the Invisalign system to work. Ask us if you are a candidate for Invisalign.
