Traditional metal braces are still a very popular treatment option. However, today’s metal braces are very different than the metal braces of years ago. This is because the metal braces now have metal brackets which are much smaller and much smoother. The braces are made of a stainless steel material and straighten your teeth using brackets and archwires. Our younger patients enjoy adding colored rubber bands to these braces so that they can have a unique smile. These braces are very versatile and can treat a wide range of bite problems. Gold braces are very similar to metal braces, but they are coated in gold. This gold treatment is purely a cosmetic option and in no way affects function. At our orthodontic practice our 33401 orthodontist also offers treatment with ceramic braces. Ceramic braces are made of clear materials. They are much more difficult to see than the metal braces, and are a popular treatment option for our older teenagers and adult patients. However, when you have ceramic braces you do need to really focus on excellent oral hygiene as ceramic braces brackets are larger than metal braces. Ceramic braces are generally used on upper front teeth much more often than on lower teeth. We also offer treatment with Invisalign invisible braces which actually uses a series of clear plastic aligners for treatment. And finally, we offer lingual braces that sit behind the teeth and cannot be seen when you smile or speak.
