Every smile is unique, but not every smile is perfect.

Depending on your specific needs, there may be a certain type of orthodontic treatment that can be used to yield the best possible results. If you need to get braces in Wellington, the first thing that you’ll need to do is to schedule an evaluation. During this initial exam, our orthodontists -either Dr. Freedman or Dr. Haas – will examine the structure of your teeth and determine exactly which type of braces will work best for you, as well as whether you need any additional tools such as retainers, expanders, and the like. Of the braces that we offer here at Freedman & Haas Orthodontics, you may need or be eligible for traditional metal braces, gold braces, ceramic braces, invisible braces, or lingual braces. Traditional braces are of the typical variety, including metal brackets and wires. Gold and ceramic braces are similar. Gold braces are essentially the same as traditional metal braces, but they may be considered a more attractive option for cosmetic reasons. The same goes for ceramic braces. Instead of metal brackets, the brackets are made from a tooth colored ceramic material that matches the color of your teeth more closely. Invisible braces do not use metal brackets or wires at all, instead using a clear plastic that is molded to fit over your teeth and adjusted to help keep them moving gradually. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth, and may be a great option for athletes, models, or musicians.
