Through the use of modern 3-D imaging, the doctor can customize each patient’s archwires and precisely configure the treatment plan. With SureSmile, you can enjoy shorter treatment and less discomfort while receiving advanced orthodontic care!

Metal Braces

Metal braces are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel. They are the most common type of braces. The brackets, which are bonded to the front of each tooth, are connected by the archwire, which helps guide the teeth into the correct positions. Today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Clear Braces

Ceramic brackets are popular among older teens and adults due to their cosmetic appeal. They are made out of composite materials that resemble the color of your teeth. The good news about them is that they are very strong and do not stain from the intake of food and drinks. Adults choose ceramic braces because they blend in with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal wires!
