About Braces

Braces are a proven and effective way of aligning your teeth. Clear aligners (Invisalign) are an excellent option for some patients, but not everybody is an ideal candidate. For some individuals–particularly those with complex issues, such as severe overcrowding–metal braces are the best straightening option. Dr. Le advises that patients consider metal braces if they have:

  •  Bridgework
  •  Gaps
  •  Bad bites
  •  Severe malocclusion (crooked or crowded teeth)

For younger patients, metal braces can mean a more colorful smile–literally. Today, patients can choose from an array of stylized colors to highlight their “smile-under-construction” in unique ways. For a consultation to see if metal braces might be the best option for you, contact our office today.
