Here’s what you should know about the types of braces our dental team offers and how we can help you achieve your dream smile,

Traditional metal braces

This is usually the type of braces you think about when you think about orthodontic treatment. Traditional braces are typically the most effective way to quickly straighten teeth. Patients with more challenging and complex cases will often need traditional braces; however, thanks to advancements in modern dental technology, traditional metal braces are now thinner, smaller and more lightweight, so they are more comfortable to wear and less likely to cause irritation.

Ceramic braces

Ceramic braces use the exact same technology as traditional metal braces the only difference is that brackets are made from ceramic, a tooth-colored material that blends in better with teeth. This is often a great option for teens and adults looking for a more discreet orthodontic system.


Once braces have been removed you want to prevent teeth from shifting back to their original position. The only way to do that is to wear a retainer. This custom-made oral appliance is usually worn all day for several months after your braces have been removed. After several months of continuous wear, a retainer will only need to be worn at nighttime.
