Types of Braces
Metal braces are the most common type that has been used to straighten teeth for decades. Made of high-grade stainless steel, they are designed to create a perfect smile.
Similar to metal braces, lingual braces are also made of high-grade stainless steel. The difference is lingual braces are applied to the backs of the teeth. This leaves the front of the teeth metal-free. However, bracket placement for lingual braces can be challenging for patients with smaller teeth, so they are generally more suitable for adults.
