What Are the Different Types of Braces?

Because every person is unique, it’s only fitting that braces come in a variety of choices. At Winning Smiles Orthodontics, we are proud to offer the following options to his braces patients:

  • Metal braces: These types of braces, otherwise known as silver braces, are the most common choice. Not only are they economical, but they have come a long way since the days of bulky, “metal mouth” contraptions. Made of high-grade stainless steel, modern metal braces are lighter, sleeker, more comfortable, and more attractive than ever before

  • Gold braces: Some people like to add a little more flair when choosing their braces. Gold braces are basically the same as silver braces, but they are coated with a layer of 24-karat gold.
  • Clear braces: Also referred to as ceramic braces, these types of braces are made with a translucent material that makes them less visible. Clear braces are popular with adult patients because of their cosmetic appeal, but there are some drawbacks. Ceramic brackets are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between visits.

  • Invisalign : This computer-based system creates a series of clear overlay templates (aligners) that gradually move your teeth. Invisalign is available to adults and some teenagers with orthodontic bite problems.
