Braces Offer Patients Many Choices


Stainless steel, gold or clear braces all work the same! 

Stainless (Metal) Braces

Metal braces are no longer your only choice.

In orthodontics, stainless steel braces are the most popular type of braces, and most dental patients request colored ties.

At each appointment with your orthodontist you may have your colors changed. You can look forward to making a fashion statement after each visit.


Ceramic (Clear) Braces

Clear braces are less noticeable than metal braces.

Ceramic clear braces are less noticeable braces. Ceramic braces are made of a high tech glass-like material developed as a spin off material by the NASA space program.  A clear or tooth-colored tie is used with ceramic braces.  

Most family and friends will not even notice your braces.  Ceramic braces are guaranteed not to stain by the manufacturer.  However, some foods, liquids or smoking may stain the cement that holds the braces to your teeth.


Gold Braces

Gold braces bring some bling to your smile!

Gold braces are similar to stainless steel braces, with the exception of being gold-plated.   Many patients want to make the ultimate fashion statement.  There are also gold wires available for this type of orthodontic appliance.  

Remember, only a dentist can diagnose your dental problems and offer the right treatment plan for you. If you need a dentist, call us at 1-866-970-0441 to be connected with one today.
