Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawbacks to ceramic brackets are that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Gold Braces

Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.

Victory Series

The Victory Series is popular with patients since the brackets and tubes come with a pre-applied, light-sensitive adhesive that enables patients to have controlled, efficient bonding with less waste, trouble and time. The brackets are also color-coded to help your doctor quickly and effectively treat each tooth individually. Because the bonding pads curve to match the shape of the tooth, they can provide more exact, efficient results. The brackets are available in miniature, “low profile,” “vertical slot” or gold plating to meet each patient’s specific needs.
