The most common type of braces used are the traditional metal braces. Metal braces straighten your teeth with high-grade, stainless steel brackets and archwires more comfortably now than ever before. You also have the option of adding colored rubber bands for a more unique and colorful smile!
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials so-as to be less visible on your teeth. For this reason, ceramic braces are primarily used on older patients (older teenagers and adults) who may have cosmetic concerns. Though just as capable of doing the job as well as metal braces, ceramic braces require more attention to oral hygiene thanks to these types of braces being larger and more brittle.
ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, removable and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth, and no one can tell you are wearing ClearCorrect because it's clear! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
