Types of Braces


Actual Patient Result

Getting braces is not what it used to be. Today's options range from colorfully cool to nearly invisible. The choice is yours! Braces can be clear and barely visible or crazed-out with colors to make a statement. They may be attached to the front or back of teeth (hidden from view) and they can even be removable, “invisible" braces that straighten teeth using a series of clear plastic aligners.

Here are some of the types of braces we are proud to offer our patients:

Metal Braces
Traditional Metal Braces
Braces attached to the front of your teeth help straighten your smile when specialized arch wires are tied into them. No “tin grins” here - you can have fun by personalizing your teeth by choosing colored elastic ties to hold the arch wire in place for a more colorful smile.
Lingual Braces
3M iBraces™ Braces
Hidden Braces (behind-the-teeth) provide a new and practically invisible way to change your smile. No one will ever know you are wearing braces - unless you tell them! They are the only behind-the-teeth braces that are customized to the shape of your teeth.

Invisalign

Invisalign® Clear Orthodontic
Invisalign® takes a modern approach to straightening teeth. Based on your individual treatment plan, a series of custom-made clear aligners are created specifically for you. These aligner trays are comfortable and are virtually invisible plastic trays that you wear over your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners you will notice your teeth gradually begin to shift into place.

Ceramic Braces
Clarity™ Ceramic Braces
These braces are made of transparent ceramics. So your natural tooth color can shine through for an unobtrusive look. Clarity™ Braces are made of particularly stable ceramics comparable to the strength of steel. Almost no other brace system so perfectly combines the efficient impact of fixed braces with a discreet, aesthetic appearance.
