Types of Braces
- The metal braces are made of a nickel-free, high-grade steel. These brackets are much smaller and more comfortable than those in the past. They have a flat and low profile for extra lip and cheek comfort. The steel is stain-resistant and allows low friction mechanics with orthodontic archwires. We offer a variety of colored elastics which may be changed at most appointments.
- Our clear braces are made of a translucent tooth-colored material that helps camouflage the visibility of the braces. We use one of the best quality clear brackets available: Ormco Ice brackets. These clear brackets are made out of a patented sapphire material, making it a “crystal-clear” option in your mouth! These clear braces are most popular among adult patients due to aesthetic concerns. Please see the photos below for pictures of our clear ICE brackets.
