Braces for All Ages


The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children see an orthodontist by age 7. During the visit, your orthodontist will determine if treatment is recommended or continue monitoring their growth over time until they are ready to begin!


Teens now have more options than ever for braces! From traditional braces with fun colors to clear braces with a less visible appearance, you don’t have to miss a beat while you’re straightening your teeth!


Braces are not just for kids! Adults are great candidates for orthodontic treatment. Whether you have had braces in the past or if you are looking into treatment for the first time, your smile is in great hands with Smile Doctors.

Types of Braces

Traditional Metal Braces

Traditional Metal Braces

Metal braces are still the most common orthodontic treatment and use a combination of stainless steel brackets, arch wires, and elastic ties or bands to gently move teeth as prescribed by your orthodontist.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces use tooth-colored or clear brackets that are made of ceramic, porcelain, or, in some cases, plastic, and blend in with teeth. Each bracket is the same size as traditional metal braces but they are less noticeable.
