Thanks to today’s technology, patients now have more options when it comes to wearing braces. While regular metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.

Please read below to learn more about the types of braces we offer at our office, and speak with your orthodontist to determine which appliance is right for you.

Traditional Metal Braces - kingsmiles orthodontics

Metal

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

INVISALIGN®

The Invisalign® System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients and some teenagers (Invisalign Teen) with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® System.

Clear

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal.

Call our office today to schedule a complimentary orthodontic consultation to determine the best course of action for you to get the smile you always dreamed about.
