What Types of Braces Are Available?

There are many different types of braces available to align your teeth and smile. Dr. Werner may recommend one of the following during your initial consultation:

  • Metal Braces: Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces. Made of high-grade stainless steel, advances in technology and materials have made them smaller, more comfortable, and more effective. Nearly everyone is a candidate for this type of orthodontic treatment, and it can be used to correct a variety of different issues, including crowded and crooked teeth, gapped teeth, misaligned teeth, as well as bad bites.
  • Clear Aligners: Clear aligners are made using special plastic material and advanced computer technology. They are designed to fit your mouth comfortably while also moving your teeth into their ideal positions. Clear aligners are an excellent alternative to metal braces, working to correct the same issues while also providing you with a nearly invisible treatment option. Clear aligners are especially popular among teenagers and adult professionals who are interested in a more discreet orthodontic experience.
