Types of Braces in Richmond- Smile Studio Orthodontics

Types of Braces

Smile Studio Orthodontics is proud to work with the most advance options when it comes to braces.  Please ask about the following types of braces.

Traditional Metal Braces

These are the most common braces.  They are much smaller and more comfortable today.  Made from stainless steel, they help straighten out your teeth.  You can add colored elastic rubber bands to create a unique smile.

Ceramic Braces

These are made from clear material and are less visible than metal braces.  Older teenagers prefer these braces due to aesthetic issues.  The tradeoff is that they are more fragile.  We would not recommend these braces if you enjoy eating certain foods or are a smoker. 

Invisible Braces

These are trending.  Invisalign uses a series of invisible an removable aligners to straighten your teeth.  The idea is that no one knows you are wearing braces.  They are removable so you can eat and drink what you want.  It is also less of a hassle to brush you teeth or floss.
