Depending on your needs, our orthodontists might recommend one of the following types of braces treatment to correct your smile.
Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces among patients.
Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and wires.
With metal braces, you have the option of adding coloured elastics (rubber bands) for a unique smile. Ask our team about your customized braces treatment plan today!
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces.
Ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns.
While ceramic braces are visually less prominent, they do require greater attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore "invisible" when you smile.
Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth and are created uniquely for you.
Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
