Metal braces are the most common type, which are popular among patients of all ages. The modern metal braces we use are lighter, more attractive and more comfortable than the bulky metal braces used in the past. These braces are made from high quality stainless steel and they are permanently bonded to the front side of the teeth for the duration of the treatment process.
Clear Ceramic Braces
The clear ceramic braces we offer are very popular among adults due to their discreet nature. These braces are similar to metal braces except the brackets are made of a translucent, ceramic material that blends in with the natural color of the teeth. The only drawback to this type of appliance is that they are more fragile than metal braces and the elastic ties used can become discolored between orthodontic visits.
The gold braces we use are stainless steel braces that have been coated with 24-karat gold. Due to their aesthetic appeal, gold braces are popular among patients of all ages. If you would like to show a bit of style when improving your smile, gold braces may be perfect for you!
Clarity™ braces are small, durable, comfortable and discreet. These attractive braces are made from a combination of ceramic and metal and have a semi-transparent color that will not stain. Clarity™ braces are very sturdy, making them ideal for active patients who play sports. These braces feature a smooth, rounded shape for increased patient comfort.
Invisalign consists of a sequence of finely calibrated, removable clear aligners that are custom made for each patient using advanced 3D computer imaging technology. Invisalign is a very popular treatment option among adults with certain orthodontic bite problems. When you're wearing Invisalign, you can eat what you want, easily maintain good oral hygiene and discreetly improve your smile. Dr. Taddeo will let you know at your first appointment if you're a good candidate for Invisalign treatment.
