Types of Braces

Freedman & Haas Orthodontics is dedicated to delivering the highest quality care to children, teens and adults using metal, ceramic and hidden braces.  After your complimentary smile consultation, we will be able to discuss which treatment is right for you, based on your unique needs and specific smile goals. Braces address many types of dental issues, such as:

  • Crowded teeth

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Protruding teeth

  • Overbite

  • Underbite

  • Crossbite

  • Impacted teeth

Braces change the position of teeth over a period of time using sustained pressure. Drs. Freedman & Haas will adjust your braces periodically to ensure that any dental issue gets corrected. Do you have questions about the types of braces or would you like to see if they’re the right choice for addressing your dental concerns? Contact us today!

Metal Braces

Metal braces are the type that many people think of when these dental appliances are mentioned. They’re made of stainless steel and are durable and affordable. If you want a colorful look when you’re wearing this type of braces, you can request different elastic colors to enhance your smile.

Lingual Braces

Are you nervous about how your smile will look while you wear braces? If you’re not thrilled about months or years of having the brackets and bands front and center, then consider lingual braces. These go behind your teeth, so you and your dentist are the only ones who know that you have them.

Gold Braces

Gold braces don’t actually use gold in them, but you get the same effect with stainless steel in that color. Some patients prefer this type of braces due to the sophisticated look that it gives their smile. They may also like having braces that aren’t the same as everyone else.

Ceramic Braces

If you want to downplay the appearance of your braces without adjusting to brackets on the backside of your teeth, then ceramic braces are an excellent option. The brackets are clear, so they’re much harder to see than stainless steel ones. The bands have a color that’s close to your natural tooth, so it contributes to the minimal appearance.
