Types of Braces

At Denise Nguyen Orthodontics, we’re passionate when it comes to helping the people in our community feel more confident with their smiles by doing what we do best: providing the highest quality orthodontic care. We want to cater to the needs of each individual, which is why we offer various braces options to our patients when they want to get a perfect, healthy smile. Our orthodontic treatment options include:

Modern Metal Braces

Metal braces are the classic orthodontic treatment, but have come a long way since they first arrived on the orthodontic scene. While they may have a bad reputation with the fears of having a mouth full of metal, those days of big, obnoxious braces are long gone. Modern braces are smaller than they’ve ever been, not to mention being more comfortable and effective when it comes to creating a perfect smile. Metal braces are also a very affordable options for most families compared to other treatment options.

Clear Ceramic Braces

Clear ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces, but have the unique advantage of brackets made of translucent (clear) material. This clear material is designed to perfectly blend with the natural coloration of your teeth, making the braces less visible. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits, meaning they require a slightly higher level of care during treatment.

Invisalign® Clear Aligners

The Invisalign® System is a marvel of orthodontic treatment. Using a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth, they apply very gradual, targeted pressure to your teeth to get them moving into their new positioning for that perfect smile, the same concept that braces use. Each aligner is customized for you, using digital imaging to craft each tray so you’re completely comfortable while you wear our Invisalign. Beyond just being invisible, Invisalign is also completely removable, meaning that it’s easier to eat and maintain your oral hygiene routine. This system is available to adult and teen patients with most orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® system, and learn more here on our Invisalign information page.
