Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive. Mini brackets are also available.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) ceramic material. They are most popular with older teenagers or adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and are therefore not suitable in patients playing contact sports.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages. These are tooth "jewelry"!
