Types of Braces
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 adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
Incognito™ invisible braces for teens and adults are the ideal solution for someone looking to straighten their smile, but are concerned about the appearance of braces. They are placed directly behind your teeth so no one will even know you are wearing braces unless you tell them. Incognito braces are the only 100% customized orthodontic braces available today made specifically for you and your smile. Contact us to see if Incognito hidden braces are right for you!
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 are made of translucent (clear) 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.
