Types of Braces

Metal Brackets

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.

Iconix Brackets

 Iconix stainless steel champagne colored brackets truly offer the best of both worlds - the durability of traditional stainless steel brackets and the aesthetics of "white" gold. They are one of the most popular with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. 

Ceramic brackets

They are another popular option with adult patients due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Invisalign®

This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system. To learn more about Invisalign, visit our Invisalign page.
