Traditional Braces, Clear Braces and Ceramic Braces in the San Clemente Area
Thanks to today’s technology, patients now have more options when it comes to wearing braces. While traditional metal braces are still widely used, clear braces are becoming increasingly popular along with removable appliances that can be used for mild cases of misaligned teeth.
In our offices in San Juan Capistrano and San Clemente, we offer several types of braces from the traditional metal braces to cosmetic ceramic braces to removable braces. While a brief desciption of each type of braces we offer is below, you will need to meet with Orange County orthodontist Dr. Taylor Olsen to determine which type of braces is right for your situation.
Metal braces are the most common type. These are the traditional braces that are made of high-grade stainless steel, though today's metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. Ceramic braces are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.
Gold Coated Metal Braces
Gold braces are stainless steel braces coated with 24-karat gold and are popular with patients of all ages.
The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
If you live or work in the San Clemente or Dana Point areas of Orange County and are looking into braces, come visit us in our San Juan Capistrano or San Clemente office to discuss the various types of braces we offer. Whether you are looking for traditional braces or cosmetic braces (gold, Invisalign or ceramic braces), Dr. Olsen can help you determine which would be best for you. Simply give us a call or fill out the form on this page today.
