Braces are no longer an eyesore for unsuspecting patrons, but rather something that can be used to show off your style through color choice or design. The metal braces of old still exist, but they are much sleeker, much more effective, and much safer than their ancestral counterparts. Thanks to cutting-edge technology, there are many different types of braces to choose from:

– Metal Braces: Metal braces are the most commonly used brackets. Metal brackets are glued to each tooth, and wires connect each bracket. Rubber bands are also required.

– Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are similar to metal braces, but not as visible. They offer more aesthetic and cosmetic appeal over traditional metal braces.

– Lingual Braces: Lingual braces are similar to metal braces, but lingual braces are attached to the back of the teeth, not the visible front.

– Invisalign® Clear Aligners: Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible aligners that can be removed daily.

Braces come in all shapes and sizes. If you would like to know more about your options for braces, please make an appointment by contacting Dr. at Smiley Dental Garland via phone at 214.321.8400. You can also stop by our office in Dallas, Texas. We want your smile to last forever!
