Braces 101

Metal Braces

Braces can be made of metal, ceramic (clear braces) or plastic. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. This is a great time to wear braces! You can choose braces that are clear or metal depending on your preference. You can choose the color of the ties that hold the wire in braces. Wires are also less noticeable than they used to be and the new hi tech wires we use move teeth faster with less discomfort.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Ceramic braces are made of tooth colored or clear porcelain and are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. While they are not as obvious, they do require a bit more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For this reason, ceramic braces tend to be used more on the upper front teeth than on the lower teeth. We will be sure to show you and offer this option at your complimentary consultation.
