Metal braces use brackets made of medical-grade stainless steel to achieve straight teeth and a healthy smile. They are a great choice for patients seeking a durable and budget-friendly option.
Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. They’re made of a strong plastic material that’s customized to each individual’s mouth. Clear aligners are a great alternative for patients who have had previous orthodontic treatment, want to make minor corrections, or simply do not want to wear traditional metal braces.
Also known as clear braces, ceramic braces consist of clear or tooth-colored ceramic brackets attached to the surface of your teeth with similarly colored wires and rubber bands. They provide more discretion than metal braces.
