There’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes time to choosing braces. Prettyman Orthodontics offers a variety of types of braces so you can choose what is best for your style, treatment and budget.
For those who dream of having a beautiful, straight smile but just can’t imagine a mouthful of traditional metal braces, there is an amazing option called Invisalign. Fully approved by the FDA, Invisalign is a virtually invisible method used to straighten teeth. With Invisalign, a custom-molded set of transparent, removable aligners are used to progressively reposition your teeth. These aligners are easily removed before eating, brushing, flossing or special occasions.
Traditional Metal Braces
These are typically what most people think of when they think of braces. However, today’s modern designs are much smaller, less obvious and much less painful than the “metal mouth” braces most adults remember. They are also a more economical and less expensive option.
The only real difference between ceramic and metal braces are that ceramic braces have tooth-colored or clear brackets that are considerably less noticeable. They are more expensive than traditional metal braces and patients should know they can stain if not properly cared for.
