The straightest, whitest teeth.
Types of Braces
Clear braces blend with the natural color of your teeth. The AvexCx ceramic bracket is small, smooth, and available for both upper and lower teeth. Clear braces are available for all patients and offer life-like opacity with maximum comfort.
Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as traditional braces. However, self-ligating braces do not require the use of elastics, meaning fewer appointments and less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. The clip helps reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth, and requires fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace.
Traditional braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, traditional braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With traditional braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
Clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable acrylic trays that straighten your teeth like braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
Lingual braces are hidden behind the teeth and are therefore "invisible" when you smile. Lingual braces are 100% customized to match the shape of your teeth and therefore the metal appliances are created uniquely for you. Lingual braces are a very reasonable option for athletes, models, actors/actresses, musicians who play wind instruments, and adult professionals.
