Types of Orthodontic Braces at Maduke-Bulat, Surrey
Metal Dental Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Ceramic Dental Braces
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
You can change the colour of your braces at every visit t to our orthodontic office! The colourful elastic ties hold the wires in place and add a fun element to your treatment.
Co-ordinate the colours with holiday themes, school colours or your favourite sports team!
