Shaenfild Smiles offers various types of orthodontic care and braces for kids, teens, and adults, which include traditional and clear braces, as well as Invisalign.
The most common type of braces, metal braces is made of high-quality and durable stainless steel. The brackets are bonded to the front of each tooth and connected by the archwire that guides the teeth into the correct positions.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials that are less visible on your teeth than metal braces. Due to their cosmetic appeal, they are most popular with teenagers and adult patients. However, while ceramic braces are more desired than other types of braces, they do require more overall maintenance.
Our most modernized orthodontic treatment, Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The best part about these clear aligners is that they go unnoticed while wearing them. The aligners are comfortable and do not cause mouth abrasions that can sometimes occur with other metal options.
