Why Choose Metal Braces?
Metal braces are strong and rarely break. In addition, you can make them colorful with ligatures that come in a rainbow of colors.
How Do Metal Braces Work?
In the “old days”, metal braces were not just brackets, but bands that wrapped around the entire tooth. Modern, high-tech appliances and methods allow us to use the self-ligating type: patients wear small metal brackets that are glued to the front of each tooth which is a big improvement! Those old-fashioned bands are usually reserved for molars or teeth with fillings that spill to the outside surface of a tooth.
How Long is Treatment?
Depending on the structure of the teeth and jaws, treatment can vary from patient to patient. Typically, it can take anywhere from 12-18 months.
What Do Metal Braces Cost?
We offer many payment options to make braces affordable for everyone! See our Affordable Payment Options for more details.
