Braces come in two main types, traditional silver and tooth-colored clear (also called ceramic braces). Whichever one you choose, one thing is for sure, life with braces is a bit different than life without. However, technology and advances have made it much easier to wear braces than ever before. We can use MUCH lighter and gentler forces to guide your teeth into better positions. This creates a more comfortable experience for you! Braces are also much smaller than they used to be so you don’t have to worry about the metal mouth look.
Everyone knows one of the best parts of having braces is getting to pick your braces colors at each visit! Whether you want to keep it simple and go with a clear color to make it unnoticeable, or get crazy with a vibrant statement, the choice is yours at each visit.
We will discuss your estimated treatment length at the complimentary consultation. Each patient has a unique set of circumstances that will determine how long orthodontic treatment will take. Sometimes in can be as short as a few months and other times a few years. Patients can help their treatment go faster and smoother by cooperating with the orthodontist. From keeping the teeth sparkling clean to watching what foods you’re eating, each patient has a lot of control in how quickly and effectively their treatment progresses.
