Types of Braces & Appliances

Braces we offer

  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • The most commonly worn braces, made from high-grade stainless steel. In recent years, metal braces have advanced to be more sleek and comfortable than ever before.

  • Self – Ligating Braces
  • Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. Self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, this means fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets.

  • Ceramic Clear Braces
  • Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. They are more delicate than their metal counterparts and are usually used on older teenagers or adults with cosmetic concerns.

  • Clear Aligners
  • A discrete way to straighten your teeth, align your bite, and give you that beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of having without the clunkiness of traditional metal braces.

  • Lingual Braces
  • These are places on the inside of your teeth and invisible for when you smile. These braces are made to match the inside of your teeth 100%.

  • Radiance Braces
  • Nearly invisible, clear brackets made out of a crystal of heat-polished pure sapphire. They are stain-resistant, comfortable, these are a great alternative to metal and ceramic braces.
