Braces at Weaver Orthodontics
Conventional Metal Braces
Conventional metal braces remain a tried and true appliance for most orthodontic treatments. They consist of individual metal brackets bonded to each tooth that act as a handle for the wires to push the teeth to their proper position.
Ceramic (clear) Braces
Ceramic braces are made to be less visible than conventional metal braces and can be a good option for patients desiring a more cosmetic appliance. Ceramic braces are slightly more bulky than metal braces and cause higher friction with the orthodontic wires. Therefore, Dr. Weaver will only offer to place the ceramic brackets on your upper front teeth which is the primary zone of your smile.
