Traditional Braces

Beyond their traditional color, the only thing traditional about these braces is that you can see them. Contemporary braces are made of super-strong metal alloys derived from the space program. Their strength allows them to be the smallest of all braces and therefore the most comfortable. Their density makes them ultra-slippery, so teeth move faster than they ever have before. Today’s braces, in combination with other high-tech materials, mean fewer office visits to complete treatment.

Braces aid in pediatric airway and facial development. Significant growth and developmental milestones occur during our first 18 months of life. 60% of a child’s facial development is completed by age 6, and 90% by age 12. We can start braces as early as age 3 to facilitate better proper facial development, which can reduce issues later.

“We develop broad smiles and beautiful faces.”

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces utilize less noticeable brackets for patients concerned about aesthetic appearances. Ceramic brackets are translucent, so they blend in with your natural tooth color. Ceramic braces mean that unlike traditional stainless-steel braces, with ceramic braces, your smile will not look ‘metallic.’ Also, ceramic brackets are designed so that they won’t stain or discolor over long periods of time.
