Today's orthodontics offer more kinds of braces than ever before. Check out your options:

Metal braces/Traditional braces

These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces." However, modern brackets are smaller and less noticeable than the notorious "metal-mouth" braces that many adults remember. Plus, new heat-activated archwires use your body heat to help teeth move more quickly and less painfully than in the past. 
Metal braces
Pros: Least expensive type; colored bands give kids a chance to express themselves

Cons:Most noticeable type of braces


Ceramic braces are slightly larger but same shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth. In the beginning a tooth colored wire can be placed to make it less noticeable. For adults that must have braces, but would like a more aesthetically pleasing look, this may be an option. 

Ceramic braces
Pros: Less noticeable than metal braces; move teeth much faster than clear plastic aligners (Invisalign) 
Cons:More expensive than metal braces; Brackets can stain easily if patients don’t care for them well
