Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Example of metal bracesMetal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Example of ceramic bracesFabricated in the USA, Our Empower® clear braces combine advanced self-ligating technology with the aesthetics of ceramic braces! Empower clear braces will give you the self-confidence to smile, both during and after your orthodontic treatment!

Empower clear braces utilize the self-ligating technology of built-in clips that are attached to the front-side of the ceramic bracket. These clips are used to hold the archwire into place instead of traditional elastics which are prone to discolor over a period of time. The clips on the brackets allow our office to make wire adjustment quicker, helping you complete your journey to a dazzling, straight smile faster than ever before!
