Traditional Braces in Katy, TX
For decades, traditional stainless steel braces have been the go-to orthodontic option for patients interested in correcting their misaligned teeth. Advancements in orthodontics, however, have made these braces more durable and comfortable to wear. Traditional braces use brackets, wires, and bands to shift teeth into a more desirable position. Looking to add your style? Ask about colored brackets and bands!
Clear Ceramic Braces in Katy
For those turned off by “metal mouth,” we are happy to offer ceramic braces which are also used to correct teeth alignment issues. These braces are made from tooth-colored and clear materials, making them much less noticeable than the traditional metal alternative. However, unlike traditional metal braces, ceramic braces can be less durable and may not be recommended for bottom teeth.
We also offer Invisalign clear aligners for teens and adults looking to straighten their smile without the added hassle of traditional and ceramic braces. The aligners are virtually invisible, and are removable for regular dental care and eating without restrictions.
