Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.

Damon Self-Ligating Braces

DAMON Self-Ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces, but do not require elastics. Instead they use a specialized clip in place of the elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. This clip reduces friction as the teeth move, meaning fewer appointments necessary. We offer both metal and clear DAMON braces. To learn more about DAMON braces, click here.

Clear (Ceramic) Braces

Clear braces are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. We recommend these braces for older teenagers and adult patients with cosmetic concerns. We offer clear braces for both Traditional and Damon braces.
