Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are what most people visualize when they think of traditional braces.  They are the most common choice among orthodontic patients.  With a lower profile and an overall decrease in size, traditional metal braces are much more comfortable than they were in the past.


Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth.  A popular choice among adults and older adolescents, Invisalign offers a cosmetic option for those who want to discretely improve their smile.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of clear materials that are less visible on the teeth than metal braces.  For this reason, ceramic braces are used on those who prefer or require braces but also have cosmetic concerns.  While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger than their metal counterparts.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are similar to traditional metal braces in many ways. They are made of stainless steel but are uniquely coated in gold. The gold coating may be considered a more cosmetic option than traditional metal braces.
