These days it can be a bit daunting researching your orthodontic treatment options. There are so many different types of braces to choose from thanks in part to developments in orthodontic technology. However, here at Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics, we still stand by the traditional method of treatment – metal braces.
Affordable, effective and increasingly discreet – traditional metal braces have a lot going for them. Their design, using brackets, archwires and elastic bands to move teeth into position, is still incredibly effective and has only become more so as the orthodontic industry has grown.
While many patients are concerned about what metal braces will look like on, they need not be. These days, the brackets which are bonded to the front of your teeth are much smaller and can come in clear ceramic material. The archwires which connect the brackets are thinner, and the elastic bands are clear, though you can choose coloured ones if you want to jazz up your appliance.
At Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics, we invite all our patients to come in for a specialist consultation so we can recommend the best orthodontic treatment for you.
If you are looking for an appliance which is effective, comfortable, discreet, reliable and affordable then chances are, metal braces will fit the bill. They are also suitable for patients of all ages.
At Lavrin & Lawrence Orthodontics we also have gold braces available. These are like traditional metal braces, in that they are made of stainless steel and work in the same way, but the difference is they are uniquely coated in gold.
Much like ceramic braces, gold braces are a more cosmetic option and are suitable for those people who are looking for an alternative option to metal braces but aren't interested in Invisalign or lingual braces.
To find out more about your orthodontic treatment options and further benefits of metal or gold braces, book a specialist consultation with our team today.
