Clear and Metal Braces
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
Clear braces, also known as ceramic braces or invisible brackets, are made of a clear, high-quality esthetic material that is far less noticeable on your teeth compared to metal braces. Although teenagers and adults usually opt for clear braces, we also routinely use them on younger patients who have cosmetic concerns or want to look unique while in treatment. Most patients prefer to use clear elastics along with the clear braces to complete the invisible look. But many patients prefer to add colors, including neon and other fun colors, to spice up their look.
Metal braces, also known as metal brackets, are the most common type of braces that we use. Modern manufacturing techniques have allowed for metal braces to be more comfortable than ever before. At our practice, we use a unique “low-profile” metal brace that is made of high-grade, high-quality stainless steel. The “low-profile” dimensions allow for a far more comfortable orthodontic experience than the bulkier braces still commonly used today. This means, less lip and gum irritation and a happier life with braces! Once the archwire is in place, you can choose from a variety of colored elastics and rubber bands to secure the wire in place.
