Types of Braces
Current brace technology has many options. It’s not all metal braces covering your teeth.
First, we do have traditional metal braces, BUT, the brackets are much smaller, both in the height/width dimensions and the depth. Today’s brackets have a much lower profile and are more comfortable. Additionally, we have tooth colored ceramic brackets. We still use the same wire but the bracket is almost unnoticeable.
In some specific cases we can use clear aligners to straighten misaligned teeth. These don’t work for everyone or every problem but we can schedule a complementary initial examination and Dr. Stephens can see if this would be an option for you.
