When most people hear the word "braces", they typically think of metal braces. Metal braces have been used for over 100 years to straighten teeth. The good news is metal braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable than ever before. At Finkelmeier Orthodontics, metal braces are a great option for children and adults, plus you get to pick your own colors! The small, colored rubber bands come in a ton of different colors and you can change the look with each visit.
Ceramic braces (also known as clear braces, tooth-colored braces, esthetic braces, or even porcelain braces) are an excellent option for teens and adults. Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, and are thus able to create beautiful smiles in the same way as metal braces. Ceramic braces are slightly more expensive than metal braces, but they look and work great! We now offer tooth-colored wires and ties for an unparalleled cosmetic braces experience.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable plastic trays to gradually straighten teeth, without metal or wires. Invisalign aligners are practically invisible and allow patients to eat and drink whatever they want. It is also easier to keep your teeth clean while wearing Invisalign and the trays can be removed for special occasions. Invisalign is not the best option for all orthodontic problems, and can only be worn by teens and adults. But, it is a great option when indicated and is fully customized to your treatment plan.
