Types of Braces

You have options for different types of braces at Tardy Orthodontics 

We offer a variety of dental brace treatments to straighten teeth! 

Braces have come a long way since they were invented. Modern brackets are significantly smaller and less noticeable than they were in the past. Braces can be a great option to give you the beautiful smile you have always wanted! Metal and ceramic braces are the most common orthodontic appliances and are bonded to the front surface of the teeth.  

Metal braces include brackets and bands and are made of high-grade stainless steel. As a general rule, they are the most affordable option for straightening teeth.  A wide variety of colorful or neutral rubber bands can be placed on the brackets to customize your smile.   

The best quality clear brace is made of ceramic. Our high-quality ceramic braces are strong, smooth, and tooth colored. The 3M Clarity bracket system is designed to blend into the natural tooth’s color. The crystal type ceramic properties make it resistant to staining. Therefore, ceramic braces are the most invisible traditional brace option. Of course, colorful rubber bands can be and are often applied to these brackets to add a layer of fun customization at any given time during treatment.
