What Are Braces like


Braces consist of brackets bonded to the patients teeth and wires are attached to the brackets.  The wires do the work.  The brackets are basically handles to attach the wires to.  The wires are adjusted to straighten the teeth.  There are also other components such as elastics, springs, neckstraps, expanders and other devices that might be needed.

Regarding Braces (Brackets) we offer four choices, all of which function identically:


-Standard Stainless Steel

-24 carat gold coated stainless steel

-Cermaic Clear-Only Slightly Visible

-Wild Smile-Shaped like hearts or stars for the upper four front teeth
