Types of Braces We Offer Our Patients in South Lyon, MI
Traditional Metal Braces
When people think of braces, this is typically what they think of. Traditional metal braces are made of durable, hypoallergenic stainless steel and elastics. They sit on the front of your teeth and straighten them over time using metal brackets and archwires.
Clear (Ceramic) Braces
For patients looking for a less prominent alternative to metal braces, clear (ceramic) braces are often preferred. The brackets are made of a clear or tooth-colored material and are mainly used on older teens and adults who may have cosmetic concerns.
Clear Aligners (Invisalign®)
Invisalign® clear aligners straighten your teeth without wires or brackets. They are made of a comfortable thermoplastic material that won’t cause mouth abrasions. Virtually invisible, clear aligners are also removable, making eating and cleaning a breeze.
