Types of Braces

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of a translucent, tooth-colored porcelain material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The quality of the ceramic braces has improved drastically over the past few years. Clear braces no longer become stained with highly pigmented food or drink, as they have in the past. We are excited to offer you a highly cosmetic alternative to traditional braces!



Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are smaller than they have ever been, making them significantly more comfortable to wear than in the past. Also, you can customize the look of your braces with colored ties which hold your wire into place. These colored ties are changed at every appointment (approximately once every 6 weeks), so you can change your look as often as you want!
