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.
Clear braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance.
Also, because they have a semi-transparent color that will not stain, patients can proceed with necessary orthodontic treatment without having to feel self-conscious. In addition, clear braces' smooth, rounded shape allows for greater patient comfort.
These features are designed for patients regardless of age. If you have questions about clear braces, please consult your orthodontist.
